Well, this is a different kind of post. I was doing some "spring cleaning" and was reminded of my OWL collection! Back when I was a teenager, I was "Owl" in my group of friends, and then people started giving me owl-themed gifts, and it's led to an interesting group of keepsakes so far.
Maybe someday I'll have a little display wall or something. Right now they are scattered in different rooms and some are in a box waiting to be used in a project.
Here are just a few that were close at hand:
|A pair of earrings that I bought recently but haven't worn. They're actually really tiny!|
|A brooch from Andrei. :)|
|Also a gift from Andrei; a decal that you can stick somewhere.|
|An adorable tea towel from my grandmother!|
|A handsewn blank book from my mom, with an owl newspaper photo.|
David has been into owls lately, too. We have a few finger puppets that he likes to play with, and he recognizes them now in books.
