Look Hoo I Found

I’ve had a vintage owl cookie jar for a few years, and I move it around the house from time to time. Sometimes it’s in the living room on an end table, sometimes it’s on the buffet in the dining room. Other times it’s hanging out in my office or in the library upstairs. (It gets around.) Oddly enough, it’s rarely in the kitchen and has never been used for cookies.

Owl Cookie Jars

If you want a little owl friend of your own, you can usually find some quirky old ones on eBay, but it can be hard to find a simple, white one. I noticed this new one though, and I think it’s a good stand-in for a vintage find. Maybe it could even fulfill its intended purpose and safeguard your cookies?

    I saw that in the catalog and showed it to my son, who loves owls. He said, “Can I have it?” :)

    I was drawn into this post because of the owl! So damn cute. I’m in Kyoto Japan right now and there are cute owl statues and other owl stuff everywhere! It’s hard to resist buying them all.

    Love that your owl gets around – I’ve got a few items that I move all over the house. It’s fun to try them out in different spots.
