Some thrifted treasures I found yesterday. Plushie Owl, Avon Owl Bottle and Owl figurine. There were a bunch of owl items, had the feeling someone really into owls passed away and their stuff was donated; which is part of why I like upcycling and thrifting so much, I giving new life to once treasured items. I alway imagine thrift stores are full of haunted shit. 🖤🦉🖤...might go back for some more of the owl items. 🍄🌱🐌
I want to turn the owl plushie into a wizard owl, or witch, or druid or something...still working out the design in my head, something like this? I dunno, I just really think they need a little hat or cloak or something...
The little owl figurine is perfect for my Blue themed Curiosity Box. Still working on the contents and what I want the box to look like. If I find a blue box to upcycle, that could work too.
And speaking of blue...I found this super awesome treasure in the plushie bag the owl plushie came in. I was like, oh look it's Sonic the Hedg-OMFG!!! IT'S SALIOR MERCURY! 💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀
The Owl items will make their way into the Curiosity Shop sometime in the near future.
Does anyone remember Guardians of Ga’Hoole???? This movie/book series:
This movie FUCKED ME UP as a kid. It’s like “oh cute owl movie with cartoon owls and pretty animation” and then you watch it and it’s like “all of the main characters are child kidnapping victims of an evil cannibal nazi owl cult bent on racial supremacy known as The Pure Ones that regularly kidnaps and brainwashes child owls to work for them and/or holds other owls family’s hostage to enlist them in the evil cults plan to take over the owl world. The plot is for a few of these child kidnapping owlet’s to go find a big ole tree full of legendary owls that will go to war with the owl cult. Also the main emotional storyline is that the main owlet’s brother is successfully indoctrinated into the cult before he can escape and has to face off against his own brother who can’t turn him to the side of good so he’s forced to set him on fire instead” like WHAT THE FUCK?? WHAT THE FUCK!!!!
I cannot fucking stress how terrifying this movie was for me when I was a child. This is not a fucking kids movie, do not show it to your children for the love of god. Like these are the bad guys
Brb I’m gonna go scream into the void. To truly understand the visceral horror that was this fucking movie, I advise you to watch the moon blinking scene and then pretend you’re a seven year old seeing it for the first time. Kathryn Lasky you’re a genius and absolutely batshit fucking terrifying oh my god
