Back in Style
Looks like the fave design from my teen years, the OWL, is back in style! The owl design was HUGE in the late 1960's and early 1970's. We had owls on tooled-leather belts and purses, owl pendant jewelry, owls on paper mache projects, owl screen prints for pillows and wall hangings, upholstery and more. I guess it was the hippy, back-to-nature movement that made these designs popular.

My good friend, Carla is right on top of the trends. She recently gifted me with a shawl pin that has an owl motif. I just love it and I'm so happy to be in style......again!
