By this point, I believe y’all know how much I love owls! I’m just missing them from blog itself which my hubby swears in coming in 2011. I’ve had this little, crazy, bright green, wiry tree since right after college (I believe it was a day-after-Christmas Stein Mart find!). It works awesome for the owl ornaments I’ve found or been given other the years. I usually put up the tree on a stand next to the real tree. But my mom mentioned that our tall pub table would be a cool place. It’s great because it gives the kitchen area a Christmasy feel and I’ve been able to display our Christmas cards around it.
Here’s a few of my newest/most favorite owl ornaments. I bought this quilted owl from Crate & Barrel this year. I bought my mom (another Chi O & owl lover one as well). My good friend Kelly gave me this gorgeous owl for my birthday last weekend. I love it! This Santa owl is a couple years old, but it’s definitely one of my favorite! It’s perfect for this tree!
You might have noticed in earlier this weeks photos that our wrapping paper is owls too! I found it in the Target Christmas section. It was $2.50 for a really tall roll so I bought two! Looks like I might be rocking the owl paper again next year!
Speaking of Christmas cards, ours are owls! I would have loved to do a photo card…I had this idea of doing one of us in front of the tree you know with the hubby hugging the pregnant me…but yeah that didn’t happen. My mom actually gave me two packs of these cards last year in my stocking! She’d found them at Borders and bought all they had for me. I thought they were perfect for us this year. I wrote inside “Wishing you & your family good times, good cheer… Then the inside said AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR. Please consider this my Christmas wish to each of the awesome readers seeing this too!
