Tuesday’s Favorite Finds #4 Owl Art
Are you ready for Tuesday’s Top Five Favorite Junk Finds? Are you anticipating what this weeks theme will be? Fall is in the air and my favorite holiday is coming up fast, Halloween! Getting excited, but wait one second….no junk jack o lanterns or vintage spooky cutie creepy stuff yet! This week we have Owl Art works for you
My personal rule….. nothing Halloween until October! One of my pet peeves, decorating to early! But Owl art fits the bill. You go to the mall in August and Halloween stuff is out already, Christmas Decor in October…. GAK! I don’t know about you but I want to be engrossed in spooky Horror flicks, costumes and pumpkin goodness, cinnamon and apples around Halloween not Santa, peppermint and pine overloading my senses! Tim Burton nailed it in ” Nightmare Before Christmas”. I also love to enjoy the fall before Halloween, slow down, step back, relax in the splendor and wonder of it all. One more week of Autumn before All Hallows Eve inspired collections.
I refuse to conform to the commercialism I tell you. Not on my blog no sir. So this week I’m going to share some Fall inspired art made from recycled materials with all of you, ” Owl Art ” there are some great pieces out there…. and Owls are well just so darn adorable and HOT right now! So here we go on with the show five of my favorites!

Next up is “Atlas ” by The Makerie Studios created from vintage atlas book pages, crystals in the eyes and a wood form base. The tones of the paper used make this piece look so au naturel. Their works are divine view the collection on their site.
