We have an owl infestation in our home. Ok, we have an owl decor infestation in our home. It’s a running joke with Andy and I, because if it was up to me, we’d have foxes everywhere. Most of the owls are actually in his daughter Ezra‘s room. She has an owl nightlight, owl pajamas, owl books, owl sheets. You get the idea, there’s owls everywhere.
We even have an owl cookie jar. Which, I admit, is pretty darn cute, and I honestly don’t use it enough. I’d share where to get it, but everywhere I look is sold out online and it appears to have been a gift picked up at Kohls.
With the Super Bowl this last Sunday (Go, Pats!) we actually had an opportunity to fill it. I made homemade chocolate chip cookies for the game. Delicious, not healthy at all, and I kinda wish the owl could just make them disappear so I don’t eat them all.
Anyway, it got me thinking about cookie jars. And I wondered, how many owl cookie jars could there be. So I went “dream shopping” for more and found these gems. Adorable, right? Which one would you pick?
Making an apartment feel like a home is harder done than said. It’s been almost two months now and Andy and I are still “moving in.” I say this because we still haven’t full decorated. There are barely any pictures up and our living room still needs a coffee table. We did, however, get a rug, and I have to say, it really ties the room together.
So I’m on a mission to go one room at a time and at least pin down the vibe or theme for our living room. I’ve been searching home decor sites for inspiration and think I can find a compromise for us.
Anyone else have a problem wanting to clear out an online store because they have too many random quirky things? No, hear me out. The random things you see in Instagram posts that would make such a cute room accent piece: tiny vases etched with geometric patterns, handmade Moroccan lamps, large ampersand wall hangings, even those salt and pepper shakers shaped like cute animals.
I can’t really help it, I want to be one of those people with all those cute quirky things, but that would require an endless bank account. Soon, instead, I’ve made a list of items from Dot & Bo that I just can’t get enough of.
