Unless you've been living under a rock, you've noticed how owls are quite a hoot right now. They are popping up everywhere from cute cupcakes to owl scissors to owl pumpkins.
Here is a little something I put together and thinking about making a regular on my blog. I am going to call it a Muse Box.....basically, an inspiration board centered around a main theme using photos and their links as a reference point for ideas. In this case, Much Ado about Owls. 
Owls remind me of two people in particular; Mrs. Houlihan, one of my elementary school teachers, and my Dad. Mrs. Houlihan always wore turtlenecks and an owl pendent hanging on a long chain. As a child, I use to think her name was Mrs. Hula Hand. So even over 30 years later, I still think of her when I see owls and anything referring to the hula.
Owls make me think of my Dad b/c when I and my siblings were younger, his reply to some of our teenage angst-filled complaints was a simple, "I don't give a hoot."  Example: "But, Dad! All my friends get to stay out late." His reply, "I don't give a hoot what your friends get to do." hahaha Classic!
I hope you like my Muse Box.
