Gentle Reader, I have many little quirks, but none so much as my love of things. This has been made abundantly clear on this blog before–accessories abound in my life!–but I also love storage containers and boxes, and coffee cups, and fleur de lis, and octopi, and owls.
Currently, I have about sixteen bazillion owls on my desk. Okay, perhaps that is a tiny exaggeration, but I do so love my owl collection. My mother-in-law delights in finding me new owl things, and my friends have also gotten in on the game. I have homemade owls, candle owls, owls on tree branches, owl ornaments, glass owls, stuffed owls, owl stickers, owl jewelry (do you remember my owl bracelet, Friends, from a few weeks ago?), and now that DH has purchased me, O, Happy Day!, a Pandora bracelet, I will have an owl charm, as well.
Now, if only I can get my dream of a Steampunk Octo-Owl, life will be AMAZING.
What is your collection obsession, Gentle Readers? What can you not resist when you walk into a store? What do you want to get come your favorite wintry holiday?
