Owl heirloom


Robert's mom asked him if I would be interested in this owl. The answer: "Um, yes" said in a tone that implied "There is very little in the world that Sarah would be more interested in than this owl." What makes it even better is that it was made by Robert's grandma. This is an owl heirloom! I am in love.

It is meant to hold some sort of plant. Robert suggested basil. I have killed two basil plants in the past two years (and have helped zero basil plants survive), but surely I won't forget to water something that is planted in such an adorable owl! (Hopefully. You would think. Right?)

That's awesome! I have quite the bird collection myself. It's great that his grandma made it!

Ha ha your blog title is very appropriate considering the blogpost you commented on! Thanks for visiting my blog! This owl is very cute! It makes me think of an epidsode of The Antiques roadshow from when I was a child. SOmeone brought in a pottery owl of this size (it was called an Ozzie owl I thnk) and it transpired it was worth £50,000!!!
