Ideas and Inspiration from Home and Abroad...
hey sisters! No offense, but the 70s owl thing kinda creeped me out. I never understood it; probably because I grew up in a first ring suburb of Cleveland and there were no owls around.I also never got those metal wall sculptures of boats, that horrible green and horrible gold appliance colors, and shag carpeting (esp since it was 10 years+ old at that time). *shudder*But your hippy comment begs a question - were the owl things a hippy thing? I never got that connection back then? I just assumed that they were some Mad Men type advertising gimmick ( not that I fully understood advertising gimmicks when I was a teen...but it rang wrong to me) Please enlighten me!
I guess I called this particular owl hippie chic more because of the stoneware and natural colors. People did collect owls like crazy in the 70's - not really a hippie thing though. I totally know what you mean about the decorating and the colors then - pretty bad.Being a teenager, I spent the 70's thinking most things sucked and wishing desperately I could have been a hippie in the 60's.
"Being a teenager, I spent the 70's thinking most things sucked and wishing desperately I could have been a hippie in the 60's."Me too, sisters, me too! I was too young for Woodstock and was so angry that I was only 10 then, but I did, for a quick moment, think maybe I could hitchhike there.
Owls were a popular theme in the 70s where I lived. I think it may have been a colour link, all things mustard, orange and brown were wanted, and pottery was huge. I LOVE owls but then I am a wild woods type of girl. Your owl is cute.
