Vintage Owl Eye Candy

I’m not feeling very educational tonight, so I think instead I’ll just present you with some vintage owl eye candy. These sweet finds are all located on the awesome Etsy website, one of my favorite places to piddle around when I have an extra ten minutes… or four hours. (ahem)

If you’re not familiar with Etsy, it’s a great site. There are two flavors of items that people can sell on Etsy: vintage and handmade. I’m always in support of vintage and handmade because both reduce pressure on the environment (vintage by reusing and handmade by reduced fossil fuels) and put money into the hands of local craftspeople (or antiquers), rather than overseas mass-suppliers.

You can search for pretty much anything on Etsy, and you’d be surprised at what you can buy handmade rather than mass-produced. You can also create a wishlist for things you want, or to use as a holiday gift list for your loved ones. Etsy is a haven for fun nature stuff and tonight I’m feeling like vintage owls. Enjoy!

  1. I love this post. There’s something about owls. Do you own all this stuff? Last january I went to Yosemite for the first time ever. My favorite memory is of the last hike we took, in the semi-rain, cool dusk, deserted trail that ran parallel to an amazingly steep and sheer rock wall, with woods in between, I heard owls calling to one another and could have stayed there all night listening to them.

    • Hi Zahara, thanks for the comments! I WISH I owned all that stuff! (Trust me, several items made their way onto my wish list…) I love to hear owls hooting in the night as well, even in my living room. Once I had to bring our Great Horned Owl home for a program early the next day, and that wonderful little bird hooted in my living room from 11pm until 4am. I wanted to be aggravated, but who could be mad when they have an owl in the living room? Not me!
