Owlie Love, hoot hoot

I just can't get enough of owls these days and they are popping up everywhere.  I am trying to stop my owl buying but it's tough.  I even bought an owl stuffed animal at Pier One that I call Owlie.

I have this owl piggy bank from Urban Outfitters in white.  Urban Outfitters has a ton of owl stuff.

Here's a few other owls that have caught my eye.

Pier one salt and pepper shakers.

West Elm lamp.

Z Gallerie's owl piggy bank.

I also have some owl art.

Almost forgot about one of my favorite owl items, this burlap pillow from Etsy.  Love this guy.

I can't stop!

Dressing up the Closet

Last night I decided to clean my closet instead of cleaning the house : )  Organizing is so much more fun than cleaning.  5 minutes into the project I knew I had to make a trip to HomeGoods for all new hangers.  An hour and 54 hangers later, I was back to work.  It started out looking like this, messsssyyyyy.

I'm lucky to have a walk-in closet in my first house and I abused it.  So after some hanger switching and tidying up, my closet began to look pretty nice.

Add some art and a rug...

Not bad.  It's unfortunate that I didn't get to the other side of the closet though.  Need more hangers for that = another trip to HomeGoods.

Birthday Week

My Birthday week is just about winding down.  There's still a few more celebrations during birthday month, but it's mostly done, booooo.  I had a wonderful week eating good food and drinking lots of wine with my family and friends.  Also got some awesome gifts, including a HomeGoods gc, woo woo!  And these pretty flowers are from the hubby.

Besides March being my birthday month, it also means the start of Spring!  I recently tried a little experiment and I can not believe it worked.  I cut a branch off of a weeping cherry tree that we planted last year, followed some instructions I read online and two weeks later I have a blooming branch!  Here it is the day I cut it.

And here it is now.

Don't you love it?  Here are a few more pics.

Notice the snow still outside and blooms in my kitchen.  I think I'll try tackling a forsythia branch next.
