remember this little guy that kept cropping up at estate sales and blogs? well, he’s come to live with us!

so darling on his little perch

my friend Jo knew i needed a little cheering up after finding out Erik wasn’t coming home right away, so she tracked down the cute Avon owl and gave it to me as an early Christmas gift.

winter white

SO cute and perfect for cheering up the window sill, mantle, or centerpiece in during these long January days. Thanks, Jo!

in such great condition

I have been seeing this little guy EVERYWHERE lately.

First sighting: 2 weeks ago. Fremont Estate Sale. The woman must have been an Avon rep because there were literally THOUSANDS of perfume bottles. Picked up the owl, but didn’t purchase since it was still full of solid scented perfume.

Second sighting: Nationale boutique from D’s last post. The wonderful hipster parisian woman running the store had it sitting on her checkout desk. Not for sale.

Third sighting: Today on etsy he stumbled upon me again (yes, thats right, its the owl who’s finding me. It must be). This particular one photo’d has been sold, but i imagine if we keep meeting this way he’s going to have to come live at our house sooner or later.
