Love Owls as much as we do? Here are Five Fun Facts about Owls:

1. A group of owls is called a parliament, wisdom or study.
2. Baby owls are called owlets
3. An owl has three eyelids: one for blinking, one for sleeping and one for keeping the eye clean and healthy.
4. There are more than 150 species of owls in the world, and some counts indicate more than 220 species depending on how different owls are classified. Only 19 owl species are found in North America
5. Not all owls hoot, and owls can make a wide range of other sounds, such as screeches, whistles, barks and hisses. During the nesting season, owl calls can often be heard up to a mile away

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, designed by artist Romero Britto

Have you ever seen that billboard with Kermit the Frog’s photo that reads: Eats Flies, Dates a Pig. Hollywood Star? It makes me laugh every time I see it. It was our inspiration for this post. Just a few days ago, we received in two new Britto collectable figures of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.

We carry a huge range of Disney characters by Romero Britto, but we couldn’t resist adding Kermit and Miss Piggy too. If you are a fan of the Muppets, and especially these two, stop by and pick them up today. These are beautifully painted, colorful and expressive. Both will bring a smile to your face whenever you see them. How can you resist?

Kelly Rae Roberts collectable figurines.

The Kelly Rae Roberts collection is one of the most interesting home decor/ gift lines we carry. Kelly Rae designs art with a purpose, and connects deeply with women of all ages.

Every piece of art tell s a story, expresses an emotion, offers wisdom, advice or provides encouragement. These traits are just part of the reason why our customers love this collection so well.

Here at Memento Gift Shop, we’ve just received a shipment of new products from the Kelly Rae Roberts collection. These free-standing figurines, for example are quite beautiful. Varying in sizes and designs, these are very tender and gentle. From the facial expression to the wording on each figure, you get an instant connection to the heart and mind of the artist. That why we’re leading off this post with this photo in particular.

Click on the image to see them in greater detail to appreciate the individual beauty of each style. We have more figures in store in addition to the ones shown here.

We’re especially pleased to have expanded our selection of wall

paintings from Kelly Rae Roberts as well.  The larger sized paintings are shown in this photo, running along the top of the display shelves.

One word of caution to you: 0ur collection of Kelly Rae Roberts art draws you right in to the artist’s world. You may just find your mind lost in deep thought as her work is delightfully thought-provoking. It is not uncommon for our guests to spend 15-20 minutes in this section alone “taking it all in” in amazement. Women often tell us how the Kelly Rae helped them “find their inner self” or helped “repair their relationship with a friend or family member” or how it “helped a friend who was going through a difficult time”. The most common remark we hear from customers about the Kelly Rae Roberts collection is “how perfect this is to have at work”. Women often say I keep this piece at my desk to help reduce stress levels”. We are happy that  this line speaks to people in so many different ways. Check out these photos of some of the other items we just received. To see the full line, stop by Memento Gift Shop, and enter the world of Kelly Rae Roberts.
