Its an Owlsome Collection

Over the last couple of years of Blogging, I have come to know some very talented people. Some of whom are quite high on my admiration-meter too.

Unfortunately, I have not met most in person. But hope lives on. Someday soon.

Here are some photographs from girls I have come to know through the world of Blogging and Facebook, and was able to peep in their homes through pictures! That’s how the virtual world works these days I guess.

This is a post about owls in home decor! The owl is the vāhana or the mount of Goddess Lakshmi, the symbol of good luck in Hindu culture. Lets see how some of my girl friends around the world have used the pæncha (Bengali for “owl”) in their homes.

So what do you think? Isn't all this so creative and inspirational? Maybe its time to get that little family owl out of the trunk and show it off to the world.
