Owl Obsession, Continued!

Discovered these cute owl pillows in a gift shop last night. The price tag was about $15, but I think I can make one for less once we get back home.

The shop had some other owl accents, like carved wooden candle holders and iron wall accents, but I forgot to snag pics.

Weekly Wishlist: Owl Obsession

I have a thing for birds when it comes to home decor. The Portlandia skit could have been written about me.

Lately, my bird fetish can be defined more specifically to an owl obsession.

It’s okay for an adult to make a stuffed animal for herself, right???

The little guy came home with me. He’s the first “blingy” addition to our master bedroom update. Yay!

Pier 1 completely understands (and fuels!) my owl obsession! I came across these tips after I found that mug. And they even have a Pinterest Board dedicated to owls!

Glad I’m not alone in my feathered fetish! 🙂  Do you get on character kicks when you’re decorating your home?


Feathered Friends

My mom has always liked hummingbirds, and she has multiple feeders around their backyard. So it was no surprise when she gifted me a feeder for my birthday in June. I finally got the feeder outside last week, and ever since, it’s been the hottest hangout in the neighborhood!

My husband and I spent a good deal of time this past weekend watching 3 different hummingbirds hang out / dive-bomb each other on the feeder! I managed to snap a few shots with my iPhone, but I wish the feeder were closer to our patio door so I could get some more detailed pictures.

I think this first little gal is my favorite. She looks like she’s still got some fluffy baby down feathers:

Maybe I should get another feeder, but I think they’d still dive-bomb each other. It’s pretty funny to watch them zip around the yard. But also a little dangerous if you’re outside – they zoomed right past my head a few times!
