When I first looked over to this table at the swap meet I had to kind of focus my eyes , what are those things on this table? Then I realized that they were owls. 600 owls! Every size and color!
Somebody crossed over the line! As I am calling it from now on the "Owl Line". When I questioned the two young men who were selling these owls and wanted to take a picture they were embarrassed to be in the picture. "Not me, Not mine" Where did you get all these owls? I asked.
An old man was collecting owls for 20 years and his wife threatened to leave him unless he got rid of "some" of his owls. Does that mean that he has more than 600 owls yes the house was full of owls! He had thousands of them. So he parted with 600 of them and that is how they ended up at the swap meet. Here is the visual.....
So I walked on with fear of feeding some of my collections, for fear of crossing over the "owl line"..... But this colorful parrot pin I could not resist it will look wonderful on one of my knitted shawls...... When you see tables and tables full of pins and buttons and yarn and needles and other various items I collected you will know that I have crossed over the owl line.
Oh but Bakelite bracelets..... they are so fun to wear.....
THe owl collection is incredible! I'm thinking they would look AbFab as yard art!!!
