Even though this is a fashion blog...well, this is just too cute not to share. 

About a month or two ago, we had an owl nest in one of our trees.  Yesterday while we were out and about, we looked up and noticed a little face peeking back at us.  Mom had flown away to a neighboring tree, so I guess he thought he'd have a "look-see."  What a cutie!  He's about eight inches tall. and look at those fluffy, downy baby feathers.

In light of the fact that I have a strong affinity (translated obsession) for shoes, I've named him Oxford.

So let me introduce you to little Oxford the owl....






And finally a picture of mom....

    1. Miss Janice, me either. But I can now add that to my list! We see all kinds of critters out here in the country...deer, turkeys, skunks, we have a groundhog that lives in under one of the barns...and now an owl! :o)

    1. Hey Heidi! I had the tan one too but had to get rid of it because it didn't fit anymore. :o( I got this orange one through a goodwill auction on ebay...lots of good stuff via goodwill! :o)
