Even Owls Get the Blues: the Blue Fantasy Blog Hop

The lovely Lisa Long, of A Grateful Artist,  was kind enough to include some cool owl goodies in my packet of beads for the Blue Fantasy Blog Hop...

... so while I created my pieces I started to ponder what would make owls blue.

Here's the Top Ten List of Reasons Owls Get the Blues.

10.  Hooter jokes.

9.   Summer solstice.  All that daylight!

8.  When the manicurist runs late at the talon salon.

7.  Posing for a profile shot.

6.  Being told to make some noise flying.

5. Not being able to find earrings for their faux ears.

4. When the witch chooses someone else as her familiar.

3. Trying to Facebook with relatives in Antarctica.

2. A stiff neck.

1.  Tofu field mice!
