Shopping List Saturday: gavron style

Happy Heart Day! And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

For those of you playing along at home, you know that the graphic design business the mister and I run is called gavron designs, and that gavron is the phoenetic spelling of gawron, a family surname from the mister's polish heratage.

The best part? Gawron means crow. Thus, our logo (a crow) and our sweet fascination with these hilariously smart, fiesty, and loud birds.

In our home we have one crow painting (an original sumi-e painting on silk) and two adorable wooden crow sculptures (a male with a top hat and a female with a scarf on her head), but we're always on the lookout for more crow. Not too much crow. We don't want to eat crow. (har har). Nor do we want to be those crazy "collector" people who fill their house with hundreds of similar knick-knacky objects. However, I would be more than happy to add any of the pieces below to our crow collection.

Row One: A murder of silhouette crows brooch by sana; Crow over rooftop by Ketzelphotography; Raven cawing by crftyscrapper

Row two: Crows on a wire by Teha; Crow with hat by poordogfarm; King of his castle by CafeBaudelaire

Row three: Crow line hoodie by RedBootsDesign; Thoughtful crow by FawnandLark; Crow by auras

As always, for more shopping lists, visit Fancy Picnic.

You know, a crow flew into me when I was on a swing as a child...yep, scarred for life!

Despite that (tee hee), these are really unusual - I love cafebaudelaire's work especially.
