HOO Was I Kidding?

It was only a matter of time until I fell prey to the owl craze.

I've been eyeing all of your decorative owls, and just biding my time.

I knew I wanted one of these guys, and I've looked high and low for just the right one.  I wanted one that didn't tie me to any particular season.  And just so you know, I've already spotted glittered owls for Christmas.  Hoo knew?

But back to my owl... I wanted him (because you do know they're all BOYS, right?) to be plain, and without adornment or even... color.

So, imagine my delight when, on someone's blog, I spotted a beautiful white ceramic owl!  The blogger (and oh, how I wish I could remember who you were!) said they found their owl at Michael's.  Aah, Michael's.  The one place I hadn't yet looked.  Michael's.  Where all things fall are already discounted to make room for that glittered Christmas owl.  Ya gotta love Michael's!

Also, I don't feel so bad about falling prey to a "craze" -- when I haven't also fallen prey to... FULL PRICE!  I was ready with coupon in hand in case there was any question, but alas, the price had swooped down -- oh, um... I mean DROPPED to clearance, Clarence!

Okay, enough of this crazy bird talk.

  1. CUTE! He looks very much like my lamp. They must be cousins. Hooray for clearance and coupons!!

  2. I am seeing owls everywhere I go, your owl is beautiful! Enjoyed your grateful list, I am a peppermint tea drinker.

  3. So cute. I've always liked them I made one in Ceramics many many moons ago. And so funny about them being "male", I ordered one from a blogging bud and as soon as I saw it, I named him Oscar! I also wanted an "O' name. lol xo

  4. I'm glad you got your owl, LOL!
