Owl Styling

5/07/2012


Remember last week, when I was sick? Well, I'm feeling much better. Thank you all for your sweet well wishes, perhaps the blogger force was with us? Side note: I'm kind of a Star Wars geek. Anyway, I had a couple of my owls haphazardly sitting atop some books. I meant to move them, but then I thought: Owls and books seem to go together, don't they? After all, don't owls seem old and wise? I think if they had a profession they would be literary scholars. I did a little styling on my small red table this weekend and I think this is where they shall roost.

The owls on either side are gifts from my mother-in-law. She found them in thrift shops, because she is an amazing thrifter. My Uncle Kurt found the horse-head bookends years ago in an antique shop, because apparently he is an amazing antiquer...(new word). The little owl in the middle is a whistle we found in Buenos Aires.

These owls are so cute! And yes, they would definitely be literary scholars. I love decorating with owls too, but unfortunately the bf hates them so I have to keep my owl decor to a minimum :)

So cute! I love owls and elephants. I think elephants are supposed to bring you good luck or something. So maybe owls make you smarter???
