I thought I had a large collection of owls…..
until I happened upon a yard sale last Saturday.
There, I found an enormous collection of owls.
I didn’t ask, but from what I gathered from the
conversations, the owner had died and these
were among her belongings that were being sold.
I think I would have liked to have met this lady…
we most likely would have had a lot in common.
I knew I didn’t need any more owls.
Besides, I didn’t know where I would display them,
as I have so many collections already.
there were some that I couldn’t resist buying.
I’ve posted them below.
First of all, I just love this very large white owl.
It is very heavy….20 lbs., and 18” tall.
I can’t figure out what it is made of…..
my daughters say it could be ivory.
Do any of you have any idea?
This is a very unusual carving.
There is an owl inside of each owl.
The material looks like jade.
This is a nice large brass owl.
This owl is also made of brass…
but attached to a base.
This is a set of five really small owls…
carved out of wood.
I think they are cute.
This is a nice plaque by
I remember hosting a
Coppercraft party years ago.
I have several items,
including The Last Supper.
This is a set if six glasses.
This is one of my favorites that I
overlooked when taking the photos.
It has carved out looking holes
in the front and sides.
There is a hole in the back so that
a candle can be placed inside.
It is 10” high and 7” wide.
Now, I have to find a place to display them.
What I want is a curio cabinet to place
all of my owls in.

One day she tried giving Huey
but he wanted out of that tub!
John made a birdhouse out of an old mailbox and
we painted it and put it on the garage….
notice the “AIR MAIL”….an idea we got when we
saw one that someone else had made.
old coal mines had been drained and sealed up….
You can see in the pic below how Shayna
stayed way ahead of us.
I didn’t take a lot of pictures, shame on me.
But I will share what I did take.

Just wanted to share a few of the things
that I see as I walk around the yard.
The Rose of Sharon bushes are in full bloom.
The Ornamental Grass is growing bigger.
The Touch-Me-Nots are also blooming.
The Hibichus are blooming.
The Chestnuts are starting to grow.
