I was eying these owls at the local antique mart. Two weeks ago they were reduced to $8.00, but I stuck to my not spending on unnecessary items and didn’t buy them. Even though I was thinking how Anthropology-ish they could look. I tried not to listen to them speak to me, “Who will take us home?”, “Who will make us beautiful?”, “Who will love us again?”.
This past week while trolling the antique mart, they were still there and back to their $15.00 a piece price. Again, they “Who’d” me with their questions. Saturday I went back, hoping the booth vendor would be there to make a deal.
She was. She did. I got both owls for $15.00. Apparently, I am “Who” will do all those things for them!
They are very heavy and I am thinking they are/were outdoor statuary. They are both the same exact design except one is painted differently than the other, although I don’t think it is painting that an individual who owned them did. My daughter loves owls and when these are done, they will fly my coop for hers. I think they would be a “hoot” as bookends!
Surprisingly, I was unable to find owls in the way I am picturing doing these on the Anthropology site, but from what I’ve seen of Anthropology items, they will probably fit right in once I’m done with them. I’ll be showing them off next week!
