In the upcoming weeks we will be sharing here and here with you all the best designs to shop for the upcoming fast approaching holiday gift giving season. Follow us by Email in the link up there, and check back here for your complete gift giving guide in one place:  “Designed Opinions“!

Lets get started with the animal lover on your list!

One of the most animal influenced shops on Etsy, has to be Cara Spainhour’s  with her Vixen Goods {Foxy Handcrafted Original Appliqué Pillow Covers}With a history full of dog companions and sewing, what would better suit her present career than creating with both in mind, and heart.

We are definitely not the first to notice Cara and her designs! Her creative works have been featured in some of the most popular on line magazines like Country Living and Apartment TherapyMore photos, info on her company background, and designs can be read here and here, in other blogger articles (Pssst, you really oughta check out those links, really fantastic bloggers!..) or read her About Studio Page.

Means we get right to it, the products 😉

I read a touching story once featuring Cara’s designs, where a lady had lost her dog. She receieved one of the Dog Silhouette pillow covers as a gift and was beside herself with joy. Honouring the animal with a gift such a this, could highlight the honour of having shared much life experiences with your furry not forgotten friend.

** Remember, if you are looking for a certain breed you might not see featured here, you can search her shop, OR contact Cara Spainhour herself for colour combinations– explore all breed designs!**

It is well-known that Cara’s design focus is on doggie-decor 😉 featuring an array of breeds. Her shop Vixen Goods however, covers a few trends in a timeless manner. Lately, we’re seeing more than ever rhino’s in the office, giraffe’s in the childrens room, bison jewelry, and fox DIY decor projects and style trends! There will be no surprise then, to hear us share the fabulous Deer Silhouette Pillow Cover Collection! (Any one of these is already on my gift list!)

At Designed Opinions one of our strongest beliefs is in quality and care procedures the independent designer performs, with the hands-on aspect of each item produced.
