Whooo Loves Owls?

Have you noticed the owl craze all over the internet and in stores lately?  It is hard not to notice. I went shopping with my friend Tracey and her little girl, Chloee the other day and we saw tons of owl clothing and accessories in the stores. Chloee (8) got an owl shirt and owl earrings. Very cute stuff! I haven't ever given much of a hoot about owls in the past but I have to admit, there are some adorable owl things out there nowadays. Makes me want to collect owls or have an owl party or something! I thought I'd share some of my "owl sightings!" Click on the pictures and links below to connect back to the original sources.  Ow'll bet that once you read this, you'll be loving owls a little bit more too!
