Owls are the mascot of my sorority and when I was in college, owls were quite scarce. We only had access to old owls from parents and grandparents. And not in a fun, vintage type of way. More of a dusty, 70s macrame way. My mom had this looker she offered up.
|I declined. obviously.|
I have owl candles, stationary, slippers, figurines (some cute, some not), about 25 items of owl jewelry, coffee mugs, picture frames and so many others. My MIL, Diane, bought me one of my absolute favorite owl items for Christmas this past year. Or maybe it was my birthday. Doesn't matter. She was having dinner at a restaurant they frequent pretty often and a large owl in the decor caught her eye. Like I mentioned, my spies are well trained to spot owls. I pay well. That's a lie. She asked the restaurant if she could purchase the owl and they agreed!! I'm the lucky recipient!
|Meet Pinot the Owl. He holds wine corks in his belly. |
He's about 15 inches tall and sits in our kitchen.
|Vintage Pearl came out with this beaut this Spring and I quickly |
suggested that Jeffrey make it a Mother's Day gift for me. He had
XO engraved on the back and it even has a pearl. Perfect.

I'm considering buying a little Christmas tree just for my owls. On a scale of 1 to crazytown i'm thinking that comes in around a 12 so i'm comfortable with that. Always been an overachiever. I have about 10-15 owl ornaments but there are always new, cuter ones available and I really like contributing to the economy. I was going to put together a collage of ornaments, but the wonders at My Owl Barn already did it so why even try.

When Connor was born there were a few owl items around but when Bear was born it was everywhere!! Sadly, most of the cute things were girly and pink. Great for me, not for him. Or Jeffrey. They both have adorable owl pillows courtesy of my talented, crafty friend Patricia. They can both spot an owl from 50 yards. Noah could say owl before most other words and they both LOVE Chi Omega. To reward them for this devotion, I think they need the following:
|this owl ABC print in a bright red frame would be amazing.|
|Snowboarding Owl Shirt|
|boy owl bedding?!? wtf. why wasn't this around when they were too young to insist on superhero decor?!|
Disclaimer: This wish list is not at all inclusive. I will likely continue to edit and add as needed. I really hope owls continue to be trendy forever.
