Christmas Owl and Paint Party Friday


Happy Holiday to Everyone!!!

Meet my new holiday Owl!

If you have any suggestions for a name I would appreciate it.

Ok this is the deal if you leave a comment and you are a member of my Google Account I will put the names in a hat and in 2 weeks I will pull out 3 names and they will get a free 8 x 10 print of my little Holiday Owl.

Sounds like a deal!

Had a bit of a rough week.  Thank you all for your well wishes. I know my friend Marilouise is wrapping her arms around all of us.
She was a sweet soul.

And I am so sorry to everyone at Paint Party Friday. I did not get around to anyone.
I will this week though. Thanks again to all of you!

Oh I love this little fella! He's adorable. I would call him Norman (as in Norman Wisdom who was an English Comedy actor in the 50s/60s - a very tenuous link to the wise old owl thing!)

OOOOOOOOOOh! Love your owl ~ lovely style you have ~namaste, Carol (Share the Creative Journey) Happy PPF ^_^

Gloria said...

Hi Heather. I love your little owl. He is darling, I'm assuming it's a he. I like him for his quiet look and those green eyes reel you in. I'm not sure of a name though....It's like he's looking at us and saying, "I got you all under my spell and I bet you think I'm quiet, hehehehe." I'd call him Jambalaya. Tee hee. Once he stops looking at us, he'll be all over the place. Great work! Happy PPF! Oh my family pet member Chocolatte is a chihuahua/poodle-or a Chipoo. She has a little of a temper but is so lovable and she always has to have her way. :) Have a great weekend.

EVA said...

What a fabulous owl he (she?) is!

How about "HOO HOO HOO" for a title?

Gorgeous eyes!!

Wendy said...

I think Holly would be adorable, since there are sprigs here and there...and she looks so feminine and soft! Now I'm off to look at the Paint Party site....if only I had some supplies on hand...

Carol said...

I'm really loven your owl!!! How about "Santa WHO"
Whatever you name him he is great !!! Love all of the detail.

First of all, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. That must be so difficult and I am thinking of you.

Cameron said...

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss....Life is so short...such amazing friendships we can forge while we are able...

As for your lovely owl, I thought she was a beautiful girl owl...and the name Holly Hoo-liday came to mind....but I see that someone else also suggested Holly...
Perhaps Snowfeather or Winter?
She is very pretty :D

WrightStuff said...

The name Toff seemed to form itself in my mind for this handsome fellow!

Mary C. Nasser said...

I love your owl and hope you pick me!
I am one of your Google followers.
Sorry about your difficult week; glad you are back with us though.

The first name that came to my mind for your owl is Noel. :)
No worries about not being able to follow my blog through Networked blogs...just glad we can connect through PPF each Friday!

Happy PPF!!
