Owl Around the House v.2

I feel like you don't really realize you're truly 'collecting' something until you gather it all up in one place. I swear I decorate with more than just owls!
Here's what I found in my kitchen:
Teapot. I thrifted this one, but saw the exact same one in an antique shop once, and they had it labeled as a cat! Opinions? Still convinced its an owl.   
Another teapot. This was a gift from the boyfriend, but I weaseled it out of him that it was from Anthro.
Spoon holder. From my grandma!
Trivet- thrifted.
Decorative mug- thrifted. Love the tropical motif on the belly!
Cookie jar- antique store
Magnet- gift from boyfriend for valentines day!
Towels and potholders- from Boston Store and Shopko I believe.
Winking Owl wine bottles- from Aldi. Seriously if you have an Aldi in your town run out and buy this wine. Not only for the awesome label, but the thrifty $2.99 price tag too (oh and the wine is totally decent to boot)
I posted about my mug collection here
And a few other pieces have found their way into my cupboard!

Have a good weekend! Have you added anything to your collections lately?

My daughter would love it! I found her a cookie jar of an owl sitting on an open book... wearing a graduation cap!

Lovely blog! And your collection is awesome! I am yet on the hunt for an owl shaped mug.

That first one is definitely an owl and not a cat. I know people often say they look a like, but no, definitely an owl!

@Zootsuitmama I think I know the exact cookie jar you're talking about. I've come across it in a few antique stores!

@SixBalloons The spoon rest is one of my favorites too- grandma let me have it right off her own kitchen stove!

@Vintage Coconut It's a hoot around here to say the least ;)
