its an owl attack

i am happy to report that this weekend i found a bunch of owls! well 3 and a half really...there was an accident when one of them...r.i.p little ceramic owl head sugar bowl i will remember you fondly...although you were only with us for a short time...your body shall live on in your memory...totally cheesy but when we got home from the thrift store, the mister was putting my owl finds on the shelf of the "owl room"  and the head of one of the owls fell and broke into a million pieces...very sad but what can you do, so the mister suggested we put a succulent in it and so i did and he looks darns cute! too bad i didn't get a picture of him before but here he is given a new life!




here are the other owls we found!




this owl has oil perfume in it...doesn't smell to bad but not sure if i would wear it but i love how crazy he kinda looks!



this is kinda what the broken owl looked like but a bit bigger, it must have been a set, too bad the rest of the set was there for my taking! he looks so sweet and innocent, no?



this is a strange one...it has holes at the top for either salt or pepper but then has string coming out of it for hanging...i am going to hang this on our christmas cactus! can't wait to go get it in a couple of weeks!



hope you all had a fantastic weekend! do any thrifting?


***thanks for all the wonderful comments on my bike embroidery! i still haven't made up my mind! i think the night before my craft fair will be what makes the final decision!****

    I have a couple that I've spray-painted but they seem to have gone missing when I moved.
