Etsy finds: Owls

I come from a long line of collectors. One one side of the family it’s model tractors (Grandpa was a produce farmer) and carnival glass, on the other side my grandma has a wicked set of Dickens Village-esque little houses and scenes that get set out every Christmas. Gram also has a house decorated entirely in orange and brown, but that’s another story.

My parents were antique dealers specializing in Christmas and Halloween ornaments; Mom is even writing a book about glass Santas, which I photographed. Dad has mountains of books and arrowheads. I picked up on the Christmas and started collecting art glass animal ornaments.

But my other love… is owls. (Sorry for the horrendously long wait! I’ve been in the greenhouse tons lately.)

    1. Absolutely! Thank YOU.

      I tried to get a good mix between realistic and more stylized owls. I feel like owls are one of those magical creatures that can be portrayed in so many ways, in so many media, and still be distinctly recognizable. (Not to mention adorable…)
