Owl Coffee Mug Used as a Vase for Zinnias | CreativeCainCabin.comDo you ever just impulse buy? While shopping at Wally World I spotted this cute as ever Owl Mug and it flew right into my cart. Did I need it, NO….but sometimes a $2 purchase just makes my heart happy and I have to have it. 
Owl Coffee Mug Used as a Vase for Zinnias | CreativeCainCabin.comThat’s exactly what happened with this piece of pottery. I had no idea where I’d use it, I don’t drink coffee. My first thought was in the sewing room as storage. But when I got it home, I auditioned it in several spots and decided I like being able to see it at all times so it ended up in the living room filled with zinnias from my cut garden.

I found it in Shipshewana when me and my friend Lisa hit the antique market. Wow, I’m beginning to think maybe I am an impulse buyer (I better reevaluate myself).

    Yep, I’m guilty of buying on impulse…not a lot but enough. I think your owl mug is adorable and a nice addition to any room you put it in. I like its colours and it looks happy to me.

      Cheryl Im so glad Im not the only one and since doing the post I find I impulse buy more often than I realized but I just can’t pass cute things up sometimes.

    Of course, I’m guilty of an impulse buy, but I think I’m better than I used to be. I try to think about where something is going to go before buying it. I don’t think a $2.00 impulse buy is such a bad thing though. Sometimes we just need a little something new to brighten things up. Your mug is so cute filled with zinnias. A perfect pop of color. Don’t you just love Shipshewana?

    He is so cute..I have a thing for owl shaped mugs…I had only one but recently bought two more for $3.00 each at K-Mart…they are just so darned cute and hard to resist…So I guess the answer to your question is..yes…but only sometimes…can’t afford to do it too often…
