My grandmother had a crazy almost obsessive love of owls. Owls decorated almost every surface of her home. She had a whole china chest of various owl trinkets from her various travels. If you looked around the room you would spot a needlepoint pillow, a macrame pot holder and various other everyday items with owls. She would always be wearing a pendent or necklace with an owl. She thought they were good luck, wise, and peaceful. As a result I can’t help but smile when I see an owl nick knack at the thrift store. I was at a local thrift store recently when I spotted this 1970’s bright orange owl pot. At first I hesitated but when I saw it was on sale for 50 cents I couldn’t resist. I figured I could just paint it and put one of my office plants in it. Similar to what Cozy nest has done with some of her thrifty finds.
But now I’m not sure, for one thing that will be a lot of paint. On the other hand it’s near Halloween and the whole retro 1970’s look does have it’s charms. On the other hand it’s bright orange. What do you think? Keep it the way it is or try to make it stylish? and if so what color?
