... enjoying the harvest moon with an owl...

“The moon looks upon many night flowers;
the night flowers see but one moon.”
~Jean Ingelow
If we made a Venn diagram, my fella’s love for somewhat creepy moons and owls would come close to my love of Halloween.

Heidi Daus’s "Harvest Moon" crystal pin did not fail. Not only does the moon remind me a bit of the Crescent Hotel but my fella loves it; and, this is his perfect owl: not too realistic and not too whimsical. The one that I purchased from HSN appears much more yellow compared to the one posted on her website, which appears to include more of a blue stone. It may just be the lighting. The brooch is also larger than I had thought. Of course, I have no sense of dimensions :p

Regardless, I’m thrilled. The Heidi Daus Halloween collection (this actually appears to be part of a Fall collection) is one of the purchases I look forward to each Halloween.  If this is just a small taste, I cannot wait to see her 2016 Halloween collection!


  1. I agree with your fella, that's the right kind of owl. What a pretty piece! And FYI: your hair looks blue in that light ... and I like the blue on you!

    1. Thanks! I just dyed my hair this weekend and use a blue/black dye. In the sun (and over my grey), it always looks a bit bluish although that doesn't always translate in photos.
