Environmentally Responsible Artwork

One Gift One World on EtsySometimes owls are cute. (Okay, so, I say sometimes because there are certain times when they're just a little on the creepy side. But... USUALLY owls are cute.) And today's no exception to this in my opinion although the spectacular set of owls pictured to the right really aren't what first drew me to today's shop. They're just one of the many items that caught my attention once I'd "stepped through the door" so to speak.

What first drew me was the picture below.

I love artwork that speaks to me and reminds me of bits of my past that are meant to be savored but might have been lost in the clutter of everyday life's responsibilities and the build up of hours, days and years gone by. Stephanie Birch, the artist behind today's shop, helped stir one of these special memories for me.

The tall birches and simple beauty of the piece drew my eye and made me smile. I once got lost in a similar vista and spent a few hours lying in the grass staring up at the sky, swaying silvery trunks and fluttering bows of birch trees.

One Gift One World on EtsyThe shop, One Gift One World is filled with a number of these serene and beautiful paintings as well as a variety of other earth revering pieces that are worth much more than just a lingering look or two. In fact, they have some of the most beautiful bird art prints that I've ever seen! They also have pieces featuring trees, bunnies, nests and more in both original paintings and prints as well as sculpture.

All are created by the extremely talented artist, Stephanie Birch, and a portion of each of the sales through One Gift One World is contributed to charity. The charities include the Natural Resources Defense Council - The Earth's Best Defense as well as The Humane Society and the Arbor Day Foundation.

These contemporary nature-inspired original paintings, fine art prints and other home decor items are absolutely beautiful. Stephanie also offers a handful of unique accessories. You'll love the browse through her shop so don't miss out on stopping by to take a look around.
