Hi, I am new to the internet and this is my first blog, if thats what you call it.
"I LOVE OWLS"
And I am very excited to come across your Blogg.
We are lucky to have owls living in a tree near us. I get great pleasure having them around. I noticed just the other day they have had a baby.
I am not a collector. If I was, owls would be it for me. And your gorgous bowls would be wonderful starting peices.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :)
I look forward to your second year.

Thanks for stopping by artfully graced today. It gives me the wonderful opportunity to "meet" you!

When I was in college, I collected owls...the mascot of my sorority. Many of those in my collection have similar looks to things you have posted here. What fun!

I truly enjoyed reading your info...and I can definitely relate to sharing books with those who do not have. I will definitely be stopping by again...Gotta see those owls....
