Owl Love you Forever

Will and I have discovered lately that we have an owl, maybe more living behind our house. Now, I am SO excited about this, I love owls, I would trade both my animals for an owl, maybe even Will if he doesn't watch it. So, we've seen the owl from a distance...until yesterday. Will and I pulled into our driveway and there is an area right behind our driveway that Will has cleared for a garden, but he left one small tree....and that was where our owl was perched. He is the CUTEST thing I have EVER seen. I grabbed Will's arm and sneaked out of the car like I was on a safari. I snapped a few shots before he flew away.

What does this have to do with interior inspiration you might ask? Well...alot, owls make great assecories for you house. Here are some I found, and one that I have in my house.

Here is our owl...can you see him. Is he not the cutest thing EVER!?!

I bought this owl at my favorite antique store in Griffin, Ga. I spray painted it white to give it an updated look. If all else fails paint it white!

you would NOT trade Minnie for an owl. I hope she didn't hear you say that.
But they sure are cute! I have a friend who is doing her baby's room in owls.

I found your blog through E, Myself & I. I can't believe you have a REAL owl outside your house....I LOVE it!!! I collect owls (I know,I know. Collections is on the the decorating "no-no" list) but I just can't help it!!! My Daddy would always hoot like an owl. Not just "hooo-hooo" but a "deep in his throat sounds just like a real owl" hoot. My son couldn't resist the sound when he was a baby and would go crawling/running anytime he heard it. Well, Daddy died 9 years ago and owls remind me of him. Soooo...your real life owl is AMAZING!!!!
