Happy Hall-Owl-weeny!

I stopped off last Friday at my local Goodwill and look what I found.

If you have been following my blog for a while, you understand why this was such a monumental find for me. I collect ugly, ceramic owls and give them a more updated look.  I talk about this often, like in the blog post, Woodsy Perch Hops, Keeps Watch and Finds Some New Friends.   I have these little owl friends scattered around as parts of vignettes and tablescapes, like this one to the right is on my bedside table.  Sweet, don't ya think?!!
So....back to my Goodwill stop.  My heart started to race at the sight of this one. I mean, what kinda of luck was this?!! And on Halloween weekend, no doubt!  He was 2 bucks...bought!  

Of course he got the obligatory 'makeover ' which constitutes a bath and a redressing with Vaspar White Spray Paint in Satin.  

He is perched here waiting to hoot and howl tonight for all the little ghosts and ghouls.  What a little devil, er umm, owl.

Happy Hall-Owl-Weeny!
