I blame Duolingo...
...for owl magnetism.
Not only have I started noticing owl paraphernalia, but, I've started actively buying and drawing things with owls on them. Am I the only one??
Feel free to join this community post and show off your owl gear. ^_^
PS here is a nice video by zefrank1 called "True Facts About Owls". It even includes a "translation" of a "German fairy tale". (WARNING: fowl language and scary fairytales. May not be appropriate for all audiences.)
I know :) , owls are in fashion :) , take a look here : http://roupas.mercadolivre.com.br/calcados-roupas/mochila-coruja
yes! Me 2
I love it :) , sometimes I go out with my bag even when I don't have anything to put inside it :D :D :D :D
Lol, I always have something in mine, sort of forced to tho, so that I don't die.
This is too true! Owls have been dominating my sketchbook for quite a while now.
I've liked owls even before I was a Duolingoer, so... yeah. I'm basically a collector of not only Owl merchandise, but anything cute and/or pretty that lives in a forest (foxes, raccoons, deer, wolves....). I also collect sea creature-related stuff, but that's a slightly different type of collection. I have an owl necklace, two different owl earrings, my own owl ragdoll I sewed myself from cosplay scraps, a coloring book with owl pictures in it, and even owl clothing (including purple winter slipper-socks and teal nighttime socks with owl faces at the toes).
'Kay :) [sorry for poor quality, these were on my phone and I had to dig some things out b/c we moved recently]
I wear the socks a lot in the winter. The green ones especially are fuzzy. I think Target has owl socks of all shapes and sizes every now and then. (I know for a fact I got the purple ones at Target because it's part of a Nick and Nora pajama set, but I don't know where the other ones are from since I got them for Christmas)
I do wish I had owl stickers like yours! And the bookends also look really nice.
I got those at Kohl's, actually. I don't remember if they were in jewelry or in one of the girl's isles.
Thanks for this post, I can only contribute a profile picture at the moment :)
Me too! Owls are so cool, they can fly almost silently!It's because of the way their feathers overlap! The feathers are fringed and they are smooth against each other and air just flows around them! Did you guys know that an owl's ear slit can be higher on one side than the other? It helps them locate sounds exactly!
I didn't know that about their ears until just earlier today. Pretty cool.
Yeah thanks! Barn owls are especially good at it! Their ears are very sensitive! They can locate the heartbeat of a mouse from thousands of feet in the air!
Last year I was walking home just after twilight ended when a barn owl powered out from between two houses and flew nearly over my head about ten feet off the ground - an awesome sight. Shortly after, I discovered Duolingo.....
OH SNAP THAT IS SO SNAPPY AND COOL AND WOW
OMG YASSSSS THAT IS SUCH A GOOD PUN
For two bookends, a pack of stickers, and some doodles? pfft :P
ok, there also may have been a few post cards and a Duolingo t-shirt as well. >.>
That's how it all begins...then before you know it you can't leave the house without a pair of these
I don't know what I was expecting while waiting for it to load, but, it was not that. It dragged out a pretty loud laugh.
When I saw this.... I thought you were mad at Duolingo, then I knew it wasn't true. I clicked on it and saw it was about.
I don't have any owl gear, but I have been looking up owl facts and drawing owls. I didn't know why. Its because of Duolingo.
I would, but they aren't that good.
I am not a good owl drawer.
Our enjoyment doesn't always have to render perfection. I'm not the best artist either, especially when I haven't practiced the subject I'm trying to draw. Here is what I can draw when I'm not looking at a picture of owls. It is ok to have fun with art and have it not come out like a photograph. You don't have to share if you don't want to. But, here is a good space to share if you'd like to. :)
Ok, fine I will.
Sorry if its blurry, my phone takes horrible pictures.
Thank you. :) I like it too. Its adorable little owl face is too much to bear.
Wow, I mean I'd be drawing owls like that, but I'd be WINGING it. I mean I'm a terrible drawer and would go AIRBORNE if I drew an owl slightly good. I'm sorry for the FOWL puns...lol
oh when i saw this title i was angry and thought you were a hater boy i not going to judge a book by its cover any more for sure lol
hahhaha, cool XD I have Owl earings and an Owl Key pendant. :) But I have loved 'owls' even before Duolingo. :D
Why do you have crayons for your bunny coloring book? Colored pencils are better, in my opinion. I have a 75 pack of colored pencils and an adult coloring book, and its easier.
I think both the crayons and the coloring book were from a friend of mine. I try to make my house introvert friendly. This is my office/decompression room. When people come over for things like group lunches, if they become anxious or need some alone time, they can go to the decompression room and doodle or whatever. ^_^
^_^ I like it
That's nice of you! You have no idea how many times that happened to me and there was no room like that, haha.
That's pretty coolbeans
I actually have an owl tattoo! I swear it isn't because I'm obsessed with Duolingo haha
I have a coloring book with owls plus owl earrings.... ;D
lol, btw, Crayola are the best crayons to get, whether or not they are the cheapest.
Owls are one of my favorite animals. I want to be recarnated as an owl.
When I first saw them, I squealed. I went to pick one up to check the price and was shocked to realize they were solid metal. Very heavy.
Also, check out this cute Duo-looking backpack (from Deuter, no joke!) I found at REI
Also, just yesterday, I was at the mall and noticed a dark green jacket with a brass owl on a shoulder patch. I got too close to the glass and it literally shocked me haha. Sadly, I did not take a picture.
