Can You Stand the Cuteness?


I am in LOVE with this little cutie! I went to the Flea Market this weekend and it was PACKED! The weather was super so there were lots of people out just enjoying the day. I had walked the whole place and bought the vintage green and yellow fabric the owl is sitting on, then I found some G.I. Joe guys I knew my nephew would love. I called my sister to meet me and once she arrived I walked the Flea with her again. I had walked passed this little owl and not even noticed him! The guy I bought him from was literally selling what looked like dirty trash out of the back of his beat up pick up truck! He said he had just cleaned the barn out. Well I glanced up at the cab of the truck and on top there sat this beautiful creature! Guess what? He is a bank too, complete with the original stopper! Made in Japan sticker still in tact :) I am in LOVE!!! I think it will sit perched in my sewing space, What should I name him or her?

We didnt go this weekend, but Renee's husband bought some filthy legos that she said looked they had been sitting around for 30+ years. Maybe it was the same dude. LOL

(And it looks like it is going to be 100 degrees again this Sunday, yipppeee. Not.)

How funny! I found an owl bank at a flea market a few weeks back, with the original stopper, and the japanese label too. Although similar in colors mine does not have the daisy style eyes, but isn't one of those horrible realistic looking owls either, that were so scary in the 60'/70's. It was love at first site and only $2.00.

Gail- you she name her DISNEY and use her to save for a big trip- keep her in your sewing area so when you are procrastinating- you will see those big eyes watching you,"saying- hurry up I want to go to DISNEY" I love it and I am glad you got it!
