Pleasant Surprise

As you all know I have a few birds in my house and for the last few years I've been on the owl bandwagon. So it was pretty cool when I was at my mom's house last week and she told me she had something for me from my grandma. My grandmother died over 10 years ago so I had no idea what it could be. Of course I was hoping for the blue bird sugar bowl or the flowered mixing bowls but instead and surprisingly it was something cooler. My mom gave me the owl pictured below. My grandma and I were not alike when it came to decorating or the way we took care of our house. My grandma rarely changed her decor and was a pack rat that would buy things (lots of things) just in case or if they were on sale. I never saw this owl in her house and I'm assuming it was packed away upstairs just in case.

I'm glad just in case turned out to be me!

I think my mom or grandma used to have an owl like that. It looks so familiar.
