Between home decor, Mika’s 1st birthday party (which is just days over 2 months away!) and general, day-to-day owl-love, it’s safe to say that I have an obsession with owls. I started my “Owl Love” board on Pinterest a couple of months ago and just this morning, started my “Mika’s First Birthday” board, with all sorts of gorgeous owl-inspired party stuff!
This is not a new obsession though. My late mom’s favourite animal was the owl and we always had hundreds of owl ornaments, pictures and other owl-related stuff all over the house. My super-talented sister made Luca a gorgeous owl quilt, which he now lovingly refers to as his “Lolly-Blankie”. Two special friends, Ilona and Roz, both gave me owl jewellery for my recent 30th birthday. I’ve wanted to get a little owl tattoo ever since Mika was born, as a tribute to both him and my late mom.
But now, after hours of pinning and browsing Etsy and other gorgeous websites, I have these inspirations too:
I love the idea of the owl on the top of the key for my tattoo inspiration …
I also LOVE the owl in glasses … given that I’m a bespectacled little nerd at heart
I love the placement of this very simple little owl, on her wrist.
All I know is that after watching my sister get her beautiful tattoo done by the talented guys at Fallen Heroes, that’s where I’m getting my owl done.
Hope you’re all having a lovely long weekend xxx
