Inspired Finds: Double Bunnies.

In honor of a week devoted to all things love, we’ve gathered a few choice items inspired by a snuggly bundle of fur better known in our shop as Double Bunnies. Among our picks: soft gray slippers made of mohair; caramels named for the blink of a rabbit’s eye; a porcelain nightlight; and a paper puppet caught mid-stride. We’re tickled pink.

Gift Guide. For Pets, of course!

Pets are members of the family, too, and this year, we thought we’d help animal lovers everywhere treat their furry, four-legged friends for the holidays. With Christmas just over a week away, we know we’re cutting it close (we’ve been busy making sure our holiday orders get out on time!), but, mercifully, pets won’t know the difference – and we’re confident they’ll love us just the same.

Below, choice gifts for dogs and cats – and, for good measure, one for the birds, as well. The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose
