Owl Around the House v.1

It's no secret to anyone who knows me that I love owls. Because they're scattered throughout my apartment in various sizes, shapes and forms, I thought it would be neat to gather them all up and start a new feature here on my blog: Owl Around the House! Once a week (or so) I'd like to feature bits and pieces of my ever growing collection. 

First off is my collection of owl jewelry. This is where it all began. Back in 2005 my sister and I were browsing a local consignment shop's jewelry selection, and spotted a few GIANT owl pendant necklaces. We stood and contemplated whether or not we could "rock" such fantastically gaudy jewelry, and at that point decided NO. Lo and behold, 6 months later, we were still thinking about the necklaces and decided to go back to the consignment shop- They were still there!! We've been hopelessly obsessed with all things owl ever since.

These are the big guys!
