my Owl Collection

I'm sure I've mentioned my love of owls before, right?
If not, I apologize.
I love owls.
It's a recent addiction affection, this thing I have for these nocturnal birds.
It started with one owl. An owl that was my folks, which I had in my possession for many years, but only recently fell in love with. I realized I had always had a bit of a thing for owls, but never let myself get too invested in their charms.

Fast forward to now. I have, oh, about 14 or so vintage owl figurines in my home. I also have 2 vintage owl linen tea towels, the tackiest owl clock, a funky mirrored owl, a few owl prints. Some owls were brought into my home for a short stay, but others are here for the long haul. 

Here's a photographic visit of a few of my owl friends:

Tackiest clock, ever? Yes, but also the coolest.

Instax: the Owl Collection
I smooshed them all together on this shelf, but they normally sit in different areas of my apartment.

Some owls will end up in my Etsy shop (one of them is there currently), but I will always add more to my little nest. As you can see by my previous post, I already added a new owl to my kitchen!
