Sophia is going to a Harry Potter party on Friday. The birthday girl loves owls, so we thought about making an owl plushie. Well, thanks to the wonders of google I found this terrific owl pillow Here is our version, with the messenger pocket in the front. It was fun to make and I hope many messages are sent via this owl.

Just a few random thoughts. I love, love ‘Warwick Avenue’ by Duffy. It is my favorite song and I think I have to get the CD. I know she is singing about London, but here in Rhode Island we have one as well. Okay, here’s my rant and pet peeve:The insanity, in my eyes of having Halloween and Christmas Decorations and items out for sale, in August. It’s happening at the Cracker Barrel gift shop. Nuts!
