I'll preface this post with the fact that, if you weren't already aware, the post title today is a reference from the greatest comedy of all time. Let's not get all up in arms by a silly movie quote, shall we?
Last week, Eric took another trip to his magical thrift store, and texted me at work he had a surprise for me when I got home. And he was certain I'd like it. Now, whenever he makes such claims after a trip to the thrift store, he's usually right 90% of the time. I can only think of one or two instances where I wasn't totally in love with something he found from there.
As you know, we've been slowly building up our frame and mirror wall in our living room, picking up quirky little pieces here and there until the wall is fully covered. His find this time around was the perfect little addition to this wall, a pair of wise, wide-eyed hooters.
I love these little guys! They make such a great addition to the wall (I was looking to incorporate more round-edged pieces to balance everything out).
They fill out the wall quite nicely.
And apparently, without really trying, we've created a little woodland theme with this frame wall. Don't the owls look so happy next to their cross-stitched deer friend? On the other side of the mirror lives a happy little woodland bird. What a fun little forest we're creating in our home!
Though I think, now seeing them in photographs, I'll switch them up so they'll be facing one another. These fellas are friends. They need to be able to see each other!
Score one more for the magical thrift store and Eric's sharp eye! I'm slightly jealous I don't have a fun thrift store by my office I can peruse over lunch. At this point, the majority of pieces in our living room have come from this one, magical place. It just goes to show you need to keep going back to thrift stores to snatch up the good stuff before they're gone.
They've got hooters 'n all.
