My friend over at Small Town Joy likes owls. A lot. Her girl Sweet Potato Pie even had a owl-themed first birthday party!(To be fair, STJ left it up to her readers to decide - and WE chose owls! After all, they can be pretty cute!)
Last year, especially one day as I was doing some marathon Christmas shopping, I noticed that I was seeing owls everywhere. Sure, they are kind of popular, but they were catching my eye from the bottom shelves of store displays (when I wasn't even looking at the display) or on things like pajamas (also, not looking at/for those). I saw them everywhere - to the point that I emailed my friend to check in and see if all was well. I felt compelled because every time I saw an owl, I was reminded of her and her sweet family.
Here are the owls - because, yes, I took pictures to share with her! PS - I cold now kick myself for not snapping up the first two that I saw. Scroll down to find out which ones!
|Mast General Store|
|Do you see the owls? (These are at TJ Maxx, I think.)|
|Here they are, on a box of stationery that was *under* some other stuff!|
|Little store at the mall that I'd never been to before (because I am allergic to the mall.)|
|Two more from TJ Maxx|
|More from Mast General.|
|Target, so you have probably seen these.|
|Mast General (they had a lot of owls!)|
|PJs at TJ's (I'm a poet...)|
|My very favorite owls at a local resale shop - actually the first ones I saw.|
|These hooted at me from the bottom shelf. They are the reason I checked in with my friend.|
|Pretty sure these are ALSO from Mast General.|
