I would like to think they are, anyways!
There was this huge explosion of popularity for the cute horned nocturnal creature...the owl...back in the summer of 2012. I blogged about it then, sold many owls in my Etsy shop and then it seemed the craze kinda died out.
I think it is coming back. I just FEEL it.
I have been seeing so many owl items in the thrift stores lately. I couldn't resist acting on that feeling while treasure hunting this past week and picked up four vintage ones. A good move I thought, or maybe not so much?!
Are people sick of them and that is why they are donating them to thrift stores?! I'd like to think that their popularity is going to go outta sight again and then everyone is going to come to my shop to buy them!
Just because mine are so cool.
This unpredictability is why I don't usually go for trends or fads in collectibles! But I do like owls. Maybe I can single handedly rejuvenate their popularity!
My daughter has been collecting owls for over a year but says she is done with that. Every time I see her though she has a new owl something!
There is just something about owls and they are being made into everything imaginable.
I actually found an owl bracelet hanging on the jewelry rack AT A GROCERY STORE!
It is pretty fabulous....
My new owls are all different from each other. From kitschy to music making to useful...
Do you like to feed birds? This picture shows just how long the hanging cord is on this owl from the second owl picture above. It would be great to attach him high up in a tree to hang eye level where you could watch the birds fight over the seed. Or, it would make a great tea light candle holder for a porch.
How cute is this pair of owls (Mama and baby?) wind chime that is artist signed? It has a cute bird on a bell on the tag that hangs from the clapper.
Did you notice the brown, ugly grass and all around deadness in my yard? These owls brought a smile and anticipation of Spring just hanging them on the side porch.
This last owl is useful and very unique. It is a heavy, cast iron trivet with stained glass-like colors in it.
What treasures have you found lately?
I am linking up with these great blog parties this week:
