Hoot if You Love Owls

Owls were hot in the 1970′s along with that mysterious fungus, the mushroom.  We started seeing owls re-emerge in home decor and fashion a couple of  years ago.    And the owls just keep on coming.   If you ever check out Etsy, there are lots of arty people cranking out owl-themed products, like this beautiful teal owl pillow. owl pillow from annajoyces shop on etsy Hoot if You Love Owls

Kids love owls.  Or maybe it’s their moms that love owls, and it’s they who keep snatching up all the owl motif products out there!  I love this darling apple green beanbag from Cocoon Couture.  I wonder if my girls would like one for Christmas? bean bag by cocoon couture 226x300 Hoot if You Love Owls

Oh, and babies love owls.  ( Do sound like I’m reading from a script from Elmo’s World now?)  I’m seeing owl motifs all over children and babies fashion, like this green owl onesie by Inhabitots.

In mythology, the owl is a fierce creature, wise and omniscient.  Did you know there is an owl on every dollar bill?  What do you make of that? owl dollar via cremationofcare Hoot if You Love Owls

Conspiracy theorist – types have found owls in other interesting places and claim our forefathers purposely integrated the owl symbol for some mystic, maybe occultish, purpose.  Check out this map of Capitol Hill.



Well, that’s kinda freaky.  In spite of that creepy occult talk, I’d still love to have this sweet little owl purse.   Looks pretty harmless to me. ciccia owl coin purse 300x203 Hoot if You Love Owls

Maybe our fascination with ’70s iconography has simply found a new focus on another motif of the time.   I don’t think those macrame hanging owls are going to be “in” anytime soon.  But, I’m just saying, who didn’t love Mr. Owl, who taught us how many licks it took to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?  Or Woodsy the Owl, who encouraged us to not litter?

DSC 7667 300x200 Hoot if You Love Owls Last April, my children found a baby screech owl that had fallen out of a nest.   That baby owl was the most amazing little creature I had ever personally encountered.  Have you ever seen one turn their head almost completely 360 degrees?  Wow.  I have never seen such beautiful eyes.  I even held it in my hand.  That experience just solidified my love for the owl.  Long live the owl.
