Oil Pastel Owl

Visiting Smiggle a few weeks ago, I decided to buy some oil pastels. My Grandmother uses them in her art and I've always wanted to try them and see what they're like. So I grabbed a six dollar canvas from the dollar store and brought them home, deciding to draw - what else? - and owl.
I started with the oil pastels but they wouldn't fill in the canvas, so I used paint to paint the background colours, then finished all the details with my new oil pastels.
I am seriously happy with how it turned out, especially for my first attempt! I might even buy another canvas and try another one...

Fluffy Moth Syndrome

These guys are not only suffering from a case of the fluffiness, but are also adorably cute!

Finally I've hung my gorgeous thrifted paint-by-number kitten pictures, and they look fantastic!!
 I've also had the time to hang my gorgeous deer mount and my new owl clock with moving eyes!
And now my bedroom wall with my house display shelf looks like this -

What's in my Bag?

An owl bag, of course...
Ventolin in case my asthma plays up. Tissues. Lip Balm. Deodorant. A stick of foundation. Spare hair ties. Keys. Camera with case and spare battery. Wallet. Mobile Phone with it's case. Last but not least, a small handmade pouch to keep my lip balm, foundation, etc in.
Yep, that's what's in my bag! What's in yours?

Who caught the eclipse at the last full moon?
 Even though I was sick (hence the lateness of this post) I couldn't help risking the cold so I could get some pictures. Simply beautiful!

Friday Favorites

The Transit of Venus seen in the rising sun.
Seems like just yesterday I was peeing my pants watching this for the first time.
If I ever see this elephant bag, I am soooooo getting it!

Owl Collection #2

Two more shelves of owls that I didn't show last time.
Don't judge me, I'm an owlaholic.

I have a cold. A not-nice head cold with the works. I'm starting to get better, but am not quite there yet. So enjoy these pictures my deers, while I'm MIA for a little while longer.

Owl Collection #1

I don't think I've ever shared a picture of my owl shelves on this blog before. You can't even see half of them, they're hidden behind one another.
Now believe me or not, but that's not all of them...
