Etsy Love: Bird Mafia

It's Saturday and spring has decided to visit us again! Birds are returning from migration, the air is fresh and my to-do list is getting lots of checkmarks today! My happy energy and spring fever led me to an Etsy shop called Bird Mafia today, where I promptly fell in love with every offering. Adorable printed organic cotton pillows (including ones shaped like assorted wildlife), organic cotton toddler tees, funky handmade scenic shadow boxes, and innovative coffee cuffs (the eco beer cozy!) are all equally lovable. Astonishingly, every screen-print and shadow box starts with artfully cut paper, the basis of Bird Mafia's intricate crafts.

This is the cut paper printed pillow that drew me to Bird Mafia initially: organic cotton Star Pillow in Marigold (also available in Teal).

"Ever Green I" cut paper shadow box featuring vintage maps.

Organic cotton Owl Pillows (also available in the shapes of raccoons and bears).

Handmade organic cotton Coffee Cuffs.

Organic cotton Kids Owl T-shirt (several other designs available).
