Owls - Nature Designed

Now in fashion again since the late 1960's, 
they are back in a big way! 

Maybe they were never completely OUT,
as you'll see they are available in all matters and materials.
 If you find a vintage owl even better.  (my opinion)

    I remember when owls were many years ago (ahem) I was but a child :-) There are some pretty examples in your post. The library of congress owls would be great.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. You're so funny, of course we were but small tiny observant children! :-)

      Visiting my Mom this summer I noticed she had featured an owl print from waaay back in her bed room... I recalled exactly where and when she had purchased it. Design mind like a TRAP.


      And thank you for commenting on my Beach Steps post too. :-)

  2. What a shame I got to your post so late. I went to order the white ceramic one from PB for my daughter who loves owls and it was sold out!

  3. I really love owls they give off such an assured vibe like everything is right in the world if they are around. In the vineyards around here they attract them with food so they will get rid of the mice. I am loving that first Dibs one and the knitted one is gorgeous!

    1. We have a few in our neighborhood - they can be quite loud (maybe a true screech owl?) - but I know they are doing such good work. They must also be a sign of a healthy ecosystem!

      Your posts recently have been "off the hook" F U nny! :-)

  4. I've noticed here in the UK owls appearing on sweaters, pendants and as home accessories. I love your selection especially the trivet and the Pottery Barn lantern too - cute. It was a lovely surprise this morning to see that I had a new follower - thank you and for your detailed comment too. I've just been looking at your varied posts and I've decided to follow your lovely blog too.

    1. miss b, Thank you for becoming one of a few Followers who have pushed me over the 20 mark.

      A momenta's time! :-)

  5. I love owls! They bring me back to my 70s childhood and all the macrame ones. I think the Pottery Barn ones are pretty cute. My favorite thing though is the pjs! I'm going to check out that site. I love anyplace that sends a note and candy!

    1. Let me know what you think of Melange4Women.

      It is fun to recall images from childhood - especially when the new items update our vision. Good to hear from you! :-)

  6. It's amazing how different animals go in and out of style!!! Owls are so cute.

    1. Hey hey Sherry!

      Happy Post Thanksgiving to you. :-)

      Looking forward to reading your post throughout this wonderful cozy season!


Hello! Your comments are the interaction I look forward to while writing my posts.
Cheers! Linda
