Favorite Things Vol. 3

So, I have a new obsession.  It all started one fine day while I was perusing Pinterest.  I came upon this picture of the cutest little cookie jar that I thought I had to have:

After clicking on the picture and getting forwarded to the Anthropologie site and seeing that said cookie jar was $88...that "had to have" turned into "would be nice to have".  Nevertheless, it started some crazy owl obsession within me.  I mean, how cute are they?  Turns out, that owls are like the new Hello Kitty or something.  They're EVERYWHERE.  You can find owl stuff on Etsy, Ebay, Amazon--name it.  Keep in mind now, that anything that even remotely resembles an owl now has been marked up in price.  I mean seriously ONE owl coffee mug for 15 bucks.  You've gotta be kidding me.

Items can be found on eBay and/or Etsy

Anyway, I've practiced a little restraint and have added only a few things to my owl collection.  I'm not going to go overboard because as with any "obsession" of won't last very long.  I ended up with this:

top - F21, jeans - Old Navy, tights - Target, shoes - Steve Madden

And this:

Owl necklace: ebay

I also have the cutest little owl iPhone case en route to me.  But seeing as I paid a really cheap price for it because it's coming from China (thx eBay), I'm still waiting on it to get here.  So I reckon that's it on the owl paraphernalia.  Well, of course, after that cookie jar goes on sale. :)

Have an awesome weekend!


  1. I didn't know there was an owl revolution afoot. Last month I bought an owl ring from Charming Charlie's, not because of its shape, but because it was the most sparkly bauble in the store. I absolutely adore it.

  2. I'm loving the owls...I think I have an owl necklace in my collection somewhere..

    Hey, how did you join Pinterest because you have me interested in this site now...I keep hearing about their waiting list though.

  3. I'm addicted to owls. I must fun that

  4. Didn't know owls were so popular. I like elephants myself. Cute top and necklace.

  5. I'm loving that yellow owl you posted above. My friend bought me a vintage jade green owl necklace w/ gold embellishments from N. Carolina about 6 yrs ago. I like their expressive eyes & significance! *Michi

  6. So I'm not the only one who likes the owls! haha I too am a lover of elephants, but I've been on those for a long time now (I'm obsessed with East Indian culture). For now, it's the owls that rock my socks! :D

    Ellegant Elle--send me your email and I'll send you an invite. Not sure how long it takes for you to be able to join tho.

  7. Really love the look in the first pic!
