Owls, owls, owls

I guess I've always had a thing for owls. I've heard one in the trees when I lived in Georgia but I've never actually seen one wild in person. But one can dream....

Anyway, I thought I'd show you some of the owls in my home right now, besides the already mentioned owl wreath. I have many owl "projects" in the works so this is only a sampling.

 The green owls were a surprise gift from a good friend. (Yes, that's me in the picture. My mom blogged about that very picture here: Wishing For Snow.)

The large owl on the wall is a bread basket. I had a clock up there but my cats kept trying to nibble on the owl, so I hastily threw him up there to keep him from harm's way. And that's where he has stayed.

The owl with the scissor eyeglasses is a recent birthday gift from my parents. It also holds string and had been hanging in their laundry room for years. And it's covering up an eyesore, a blank plastic switch plate, too!

The owl outside was meant to scare squirrels and it did for a while but now they just ignore it. This owl is all over Southern California. Oh, and my cats freaked when I first brought it home!

If you love owls, then you should check out one of my FAVORITE blogs, My Owl Barn. I visit it almost everyday. Nothing but OWLS!!

I've had the silver owl for a long time. It's not the greatest picture of it but I wanted to show how well it goes with my mod lamp. And notice my prized book by legendary Helen Gurley Brown - Single Girl's Cookbook. I'll be using it for my upcoming Valley of the Dolls party!!

The orange owl is from South America and is supposed to be good luck. A good, well-traveled friend gave it to me and I keep it over the ashes of Caj and Miska.

If you've seen me recently, then there is a good chance you've seen me wearing these earrings. I wear them several times a week. I mean, really, owls go with everything!

Hey, I don't know the history of that owl (tecolote en Guatemala) but here are a couple of relevant blog articles:
