What a HOOT!

Owls seem to be all the rage right now. I've loved them for a long time.

I drew my first owl back in the early 70s. I'd just started work at the telephone company. They needed a *volunteer* to make a poster for the safety committee. So, *Be Safety Wise* became my theme. My boss liked it so much that she had a photo of me with my poster taken for the Bell Newsletter. So it was an owl that started my art career at MaBell.

This great Cast Iron Vintage Owl Bank was used to advertise Wards Riverside, a tire company. I may list him in my Etsy Vintage shop later.


I painted this owl with pen and ink on glass back in 83. It's done in reverse on the inside of the glass. The background is fabric. The pic is a little pink, but that's my old camera! This was from a class by Suzy Stosberg of Suzys Tole Shop. I sure miss that shop!


Here's some other wonderful owls from Etsy.

I love this sweet little needle felted guy from Marmee Craft.
She has other gorgeous items in her shop, too.




SweetLibertyPrims has an adorable set of owl tags!
I could see these on an *owl* themed tree!


LindaRobbsArt uses Prismacolors to create this Scripture Art on Bristol board.
Check out her shop for more!



My passion is Primitives, of course!
RabbitHollowPrim's Owl Pull Toys have bottle cap eyes!
How cute is that!


Your collection of owls wouldn't be complete without Owl Halloween decorations
from the 30s! This is already sold, but TinselAndTrinkets shop has lots more vintage Halloween and Christmas items!

Hope you enjoyed seeing these wise old owls!

Have a great week!
