OWLove ya fa-evah...

Ok, so maybe the title isn't as catchy as I would have liked...ok smartypants, YOU come with one!
But you have to admit, this little big owl has some personality. And don't ya love a good personality?!
I spotted this big guy from my car as I drove up to a garage sale (last year) and took a somewhat 'uninterested, just walking past him, ya know, to get to ummm, other ummmm, interesting things' glance at him then up at the garage sale hostess who was certainly watching my eye (could she tell I sooo wanted him?)!  I did get a few things and finally inquired about Mr. Owl.  Ceramic, made from a mold, fired & painted by an aunt or cousin in 1976 or 1978 as indicated on the bottom.  Made my offer and loaded Mr. Owl and my other items in the car and could hardly wait to get a can of spray paint in my hands!!!  Not a chip on this guy, and did I tell you he just has the {bEsT} personality?!

AFTER
 Look at how much happier he is with my {PAINTED FRESH} love sprayed all over him!!

Your comments really make me smile!  Go ahead, take a moment, leave a comment for me!

That looks amazing, I've seen similar owls for big bucks on some home decor websites.
