Like many of you can def understand... I have an addiction to Goodwill shopping.
I really try and stay away so I do not go broke.  Because lets face face it... I have
a severe case of 'Who needs money when I have this magic plastic card here.'  So
last week DH and I went poking around GW.  As we were about to leave I just hardly
notice out of the corner of my eye a very lonely looking owl.  Ohh, did I mention that
I love owls as well?!

I just HAD to give him a loving new home.  And for $2.25 who could would argue with
me about it right!  We get home and he is perching quietly on the kitchen counter.  Much
different from the actual live parrot in the house. :\  I decided that since his coloring did
not go so well with my rather colorful living area.  And I had been meaning to spray some
of my picture frames anyways.  

I make my way down to Home Depot in search of one of my most recent favorite colors.
TURQUOISE! I find a very dark 'lagoon' color that I approved of, and ran back home!  Along
with 6 or so frames, he got a nice cleaning, and colorful shower!  I love the way he turned
out.  He is just perfect!  I also found out there is a mate to him!  If anyone has one of these
I would def be willing to buy him from you as well as pay shipping.

So here is a pic I found online of the two together, and then what he looks like now.  <3
I think I will name him Herald.

Where did you get yours?  I would LOVE to find the mate so he has a friend on my kitchen
window where I decided to place him.

ETA-  THANKS! lol

I got them at a garage sale.  Honestly, if you really want the mate, I don't care if I have a set or not...really, I have oodles of owls.  PM me and maybe we can arrange something.
