Whoooo's Seeing Owls Everywhere... Oh It's Just Me?

I knew owls were a pretty popular thing, but I'd never really paid attention until the last couple of weeks. Well, folks, I'm here to tell you that owls are EVERYWHERE, which makes dreaming about Lily's perfect nursery both easy-peasy and overwhelming! Oh you don't believe me...

Look at this adorable set of owl nesting dolls from Urban Outfitters! What a cute family they make! I can just see them sitting on the top of a coat hook shelf or book shelf.

After looking at about a THOUSAND owl themed wall decals I think this one is my favorite. And being the cheapest at only $16, it's Jay's favorite too! Hehe. The color of the lettering and the owl can be customized, and I think it would be prefect over the crib or the changing table.

I have, have, HAVE to have this owl shaped pillow pattern from Etsy. And since it's just a pattern it's both inexpensive and customizable. I was planning on finding some other fabrics that would coordinate with the owl print so this project will easily pull all those fabrics together. It will probably end up sitting in the chair in her room for a while since nothing is supposed to be in the crib except her for quite a few months.

And finally...

Once I have the pattern I can shrink it and make a mobile like this one to go over her crib. 

I can't wait to get started. But first I have to clean out her room. Grrr. That's the part I'm not looking forward to. Her room and the guest room have been our dumping ground for odds and ends every since we moved into our house. It's going to be a couple weekend job, probably to figure out what should be stored, what should be donated, and what should be pitched. And it won't be happening this weekend, since this weekend is my Bestie's baby shower! Woohoo! I have to finish up a couple of project tonight and tomorrow and then wrap up her gift. I can't wait to see all the beautiful things she gets. I'll try to take pictures so I can share the things I made for her, but you never know with this pregnancy brain how that's going to go. I just hope I can remember to take my 22 week bump picture on Saturday since I'll be out of town on Sunday. Good grief. So many things to remember. So few brain cells to do it with!

Happy Friday everyone! Owl talk to you later! hehehehehehehe! Did ya just hear Jay groan all the way from his office. ;-)

Love your "owl" theme!
Lily's going to have the cutest nursery!
Speaking of owls, we have one in our neighborhood and hear him around dusk almost every day.
Wonderful sound!
