And Here's What We're Playing For...

First of all, I just want to say that even though I haven't gotten as large a response as I have in the past for giveaways, I'm loving this giveaway and all the music suggestions! My week has been lovely.

So, here she is:

Sorry for the pic... I almost ran out of daylight...

Here's how to sign up for the giveaway:

Post your name and a song suggestion for me in the "Comments" section of this post. Friday I will be picking a winner! **If you've already signed up in the last post, no need to comment again. I've got you down. ;) Loooooooves! -Katie


  1. I had to think about it, but now I'm ready. "Drumming Song" by Florence and the Machine.

  2. Thank you for your generous giveaway. Love your work. I always have some Lucinda Williams (I can't let go) or Grace Potter and The Nocturnals (Treat me right) on my playlist. Can't wait to see what everybody comes up with, I love discovering new sounds.

  3. This is a great giveaway! I love the idea of sharing new music with others. I would recommend Ben Kenney's "Comfort". (It may be hard to find, so if you have no other way of listening to it, you can find it on his facebook page.)

  4. Love the new look on your blog! Reminds me of Autumn. And, I'm glad I was able to help!

    *How about "Dancing" by Elisa. Love that one.

  5. I've been listening to this album a lot

    It's hard to choose one song but if i have tooooo, i really like Inspiration Information :D

  6. Its kinda lame, cause its all over tv, but it's stuck in my head lately and I play it constantly:

    Falling in love in a coffee shop by Landon Pigg

    Or another thats on repeat for me :

    Two Birds by Regina Spektor

  7. Tough to choose just about 'Dog House Music' by Seasick Steve, played on a 2 string guitar & awesome.

  8. Okay, what about...
    "Fun, fun, fun" by the Beach Boys

  9. Oh, that's such an adorable giveaway...
    I really, really wish I could make it!
    And I really love to suggest you those great musicians:
    " O Grande Encontro ".
    This is a coalition of four fantastic Brazilian singers:
    Alceu Valença / Elba Ramalho / Geraldo Azevedo / Zé Ramalho
    They are just awesome!!
    Especially songs like:
    " Dia branco "...
    But nearly all of the others are just wonderful, as well!
    And so different!
    Go and have it a try.
    It's really worth it!
    I'm sure you'll find something you really like.

    just to mention it:
    I relly love those sugar-sweet creatures you are making!
    They are awesome.
    Go ahead and ahead with it!!

  10. Oh, she is dizzy-ingly pretty!!

  11. I just found you and your gorgeous little creatures. Im in love. I would love to buy them all. Really. To crowd my working space with owls and the zebra. <3

    Song I have been personally listening recently is Hush by Rotersand. It's constantly playing in my iPod. Hope you like it too.

    Best wishes for you. :)

  12. Oh my goodness - she is utterly precious and Im thinking I shoulda gone with 'meenie'...:)

  13. So cute! I just stumbled across your Etsy shop, and I'm swooning over your penguin. As far as a's the perfect time of year for Nat King Cole's " 'Tis Autumn".

  14. oh, I never win anything, and your little owl would look fantastic sitting in my art studio!!
    A classic song, and always a fave:
    Free Bird by Lynard Skynard
    Almost Cut My Hair by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    ps: I'm a new follower of your blog!

  15. Argh, so hard to pick just one, so I can't. LOL. Oh and to sunnie fairy, I just saw the Beach Boys in concert, it was great and SO MUCH FUN!

    Back to the comp...

    *Cool and Funky- Belle and Sebastian, "Your Cover's Blown"

    *Neat and amazing piece of Australian music, Gotye "Hearts a Mess"

    *For a nostalgic feel, M83 "Kim and Jessie"

    *Beautiful musician that is Nick Cave, "The Ship Song"

    *One that pulls at my heart strings for some reason -Suede's "A New Morning" Although I can not find it on Youtube unfortunately. Suede is one of my favourite bands, I also heart the sweet songs "Saturday Night" and "Trash." I don't know anyone else other than my husband and I who know of or love Suede, but I am just putting them out there should anyone else want to listen.

    Pssst... Nick Cave and PJ Harvey- "Henry Lee" is also cool, but Youtube is not so friendly there either. LOL.

    Keep on creating your lovely and delightful darlings, they are beyond fantastic!

    Have fun listening to all these songs recommended to you from your lovely readers! (I am also looking some up).

    My word verification - "Faddrowsy." HAHAHA.

  16. "A Little Time" by Beautiful South never fails to make me smile.

  17. God Doesn't Laugh by Regina it! Very deep & thought provoking like your wise little owl :)

  18. my favorite...especially if I were enjoying fall along with you is...summer skin by death cab for cutie. it is so similar to my childhood, and then growing older... but it's no fair to pick that because I know how much you like death cab.
    so i also like celebration guns by stars (it's about guantanamo bay, but put all that aside, and I really like the line "and the next day how will you know your enemy by their color or your fear")
    BUT I just downloaded We Will Walk Through Walls by Electric President (stupid reason: I thought it said "these tiny fists CAN change the world" and i like that being pregnant and all...dumb I know)
    so there. love you. can't believe hope is getting bigger and biger. i guess it's how it happens.

  19. "Everything Must Find It's Place" by Sleeperstar.

    They're a really great emerging band from Dallas. This song is good for putting on big headphones, closing your eyes, and forgetting the world. It's like being wrapped in a blanket of music.

    I lovelovelove your store (and Madam Owl is absolutely beautiful), I am always checking back for new cuties! I hope you've found some great new music!


  20. oops. i commented on the original post. my music selections are over there :-)

  21. My sister Malorie and I's favorite song right now is Momma's Boy by Elizabeth and the Catapult

    Their whole album Taller Children is great!

    -Aubrey (and Malorie)

  22. I have Gavin DeGraw's 'She Holds A Key' on repeat. I hope you like it too! Love your creatures by the way!

  23. i'm going to submit one and a half.. the first one is a half because i've yet to find the full version.. but this snippet has been in my head all summer. i downloaded a preview and it's my ringtone:

    and the full song would be from the silversun pickups who haven't left me this summer either.

    and i s'pose it's only fair to submit one each.. but here are two more, and one of my youtube playlists. not to be considered for the giveaway, but for you to explore. maybe you'll find something new, maybe you wont:

    my tried and true...

    arcade fire in an elevator:


  24. The Black Keys
    Album-Attack and Release
    Song-All You Ever Wanted

  25. ...I'd really like to suggest another song...
    Because I just love it, and I could imagine, you would like it, too.
