Hoo Hoo! Owl Mania

Photo from:

Earlier this week, my friend surprised me with a gift from her latest trip to Mexico, a owl salt shaker!  I love, love, love it (thanks Becky!).  This of course is a great gift for lots of reasons.  One being my love for owls.  It is a rather recent obsession, but it is truly becoming a collection of owls and owl products.  I am going to dedicate this post to my love of all things owls.

Newest addition from Mexico

My house is full of mementos that I have brought back from trips around the world.  I have been very fortunate that my job takes me to fun, faraway places and that I have a very adventurous spirit.  The  owls in the top left picture are some examples of those trip souvenirs.  The big owl is from our R and I's trip to Peru a couple years ago, where we hiked the Inka Trail and explored many Inka ruins.  I found the owl at a local market in Lima near our hostel.  The little one is from Guatemala.  I was traveling there for work and picked up a collection of 3 to give to a couple of my co-workers.  Each time I see them I am reminded of my travels!

The others are gifts (my friends/boyfriend know me too well!) and items I have picked up at local antique stores.  Its fascinating that owls have been in style for a long time.  I even found a owl necklace in my grandma's jewelry collection (which I immediately adopted)!!
