the owls of owenania: charlie
Charlie seemed pretty content when I placed him in our big backyard tree for his photo shoot. I have a feeling that, despite his atypical blue hue, he's a natural, rustic sort of owl who feels quite at home amidst moss and bark. But, our tree was just a stopping place on the way to his permanent home a town away, where I am sure he will be equally delighted. Little does he know, but Charlie is going to be living amongst a whole commune of owls. You see, I discovered last week that Mr. B, the dad of my elementary-school best friend, collects owls. I spent a lot of time in Mr. and Mrs. B's home as a kid, but I never knew about his love of owls until now. When I learned this bit of information, I thought it only right to make a felted owl to add to the collection, and Charlie seemed an amiable and good-natured owl to send his way. I know that little Charlie is sure to be in good company. Afterall, a home full of owls is a happy home!
