As I stood there with my son and husband in awe of the moon, I thought about all of the night creatures that look at the moon night after night. Did they notice a difference in the moon last night? Did it scare them? Then I began thinking about decorating with these creatures. My sister and I had a discussion the other day about which animals are our favorite...yes I know a very grown up conversation for a 34 year old and her older sister. I thought it was interesting because most of the animals she picked were creatures of the night...a fox, deer, owl, cat. And my other friend has a serious owl fetish. So in honor of the moon, my sister and friend, Monkey, I have scouted some fun images and items with these nocturnal creatures in mind...
Do you spot the owls below?

I think it is so easy to bring images from nature indoors to make us feel more connected to the outdoors. Nature it is what grounds us and makes us feel whole. So what did you all think of the moon last night...did it inspire you in other ways?
