I know that these days owls have become a bit of a cliche and that you can barely go into any clothes store or gift shop without seeing something owl-related. However, as much as I hate being that guy, I'm going to assure you that I liked owls 'before they were cool' - they've always been my favourite animal! If you're unsure about the awesomeness of owls, you should watch this video right now as it's guaranteed to convert you:
(this is my first time posting a video, fingers crossed that it works!)
The first addition to my owl collection was this amazing cushion from Sass and Belle, which was a gift from my sister.
If you're from the UK, I'm sure you'll have seen these owls before as they seem to be popping up in gift shops everywhere. Tetley and I recently added a fourth owl to our cushion collection, the tartan one in the picture below. Tetley actually picked out and bought this owl for himself, clearly I am a bad influence on him!
While these owls are cute, I have slightly gone against the thrifting theme of this post to include them, although since two of them were gifts I feel that it sort of counts! My flat is also full of owls that I actually have thrifted though: these ornaments are only a small selection from my slightly crazy collection:
I'll leave you with one final non-thrifted item, my perpetual calendar from Sukie - can you spot the owl?
I won't be updating for a few days as me and Tetley are taking a mini-break to Whitby, a cute little English seaside town where Tetley grew up. Hopefully we'll get some sunshine so we can make it a proper retro summer holiday! See you all next week,
