Do you give a hoot?

Hooty the Owl, by Park Lane Jewelry

So, what is up with all the owls?  I’ve always found them to be fascinating creatures, although somewhat mysterious.  I’ve read that in Native American culture they are considered a bird of wisdom and I loved Friend Owl in Bambi who lived up to this as he helped guide the furry little friends.  Does anyone remember his word, “twitterpated”?  He used this word to describe the springtime love that happened in the forest.

I’m not sure when it first happened, but all of a sudden, the owl is everywhere!  You can find on party supplies, dish towels, clothing, Christmas ornaments, notepads, cups, and jewelery.  I saw a birthday card with, ‘Look WHO is two?” with a cutesy owl plastered on the front.

It makes you wonder who thought, “I bet owls would be a big hit right now”.  Then again, maybe there is a particular movie that is causing their soaring popularity.  I know the owl, Woodsy, from the 70s made the saying, “Give a hoot, don’t pollute” popular.  This new trend is an easy one to embrace, which isn’t always the case.  I even tried to make one and although I failed (see earlier blog), it would have been a welcome addition to my tree decorations.

I’m going to head out soon and I will probably be rockin’ my new necklace; it’s silver and features an owl pendant; appropriately called “hooty”.   It’s super cute!  What do you think?
