I must've missed the memo

Did anyone else not realize how trendy owls were? I had heard some people/shows/blogs talk about them, but I had no idea how prevalent they were in home decor.

While at HomeSense this past weekend, they were all over the place. HomeSense being what it is, I can't link to anything or even search for products, however, I decided to take a look at some of my favourite sites and even google it to see what's out there.

I've posted once about some Pier 1 owls I liked, and there are some other very interesting ones out there...some obviously more tasteful than others and some just downright tacky and c-raaazy.

Anyways, here's an idea of some of my finds:

Owl Lamp from Anthropologie:
Owl Pillow from Modern Dose

Owl Wall Decal from Silk Fair

Owl Umbrella Stand from Burke Decor

Weird Owl fan from Target

Owl Duvet Set from Pottery Barn

Owl Tea Set from Pearl River

Owl Brass Figurine from Etsy seller ModishVintage

And just looking through all the owl-related products on Etsy is enough to fulfill any weird owl-cravings.

I can't help but think back to Farley Mowat's Owls in the Family book report circa 4th grade.

While I don't particularly love that this is the "trendy" thing to do, I do appreciate the increased selection of all things owl since I think it's a "safe" animal to disply in terms of gender-neutral rooms. It's not particularly feminine but it can still be cute. Sounds good to me.
