In Celebration Of - Feathers!

Soft, silky, fluffy, floaty, petite, dignified, slender, spotty, refined, downy.... I love feathers! Such a glorious decorative item to include in all sorts of ways. I haven't quite 'gotta thing' about them like I do for some things, but... hmmmm... not far off it!


Feathers can add such a whimsical and delightful touch to decorative items, or, can BE the decorative item in themselves.

I have a lovely little orange ceramic vase on my living room bookshelf with a few sleek, fluffy, or wispy feathers! Great substitute for flowers - never dried up and old looking!


And, I also have (yep, I do..), a pale pink feather boa draped over the door of my spare room, which is decorated in pinks, white, some cherry red plus a dash of apple green. (Definite 'girly' room there!)

I occasionally run my fingers through the boa as I'm passing - touch is a wonderful thing isn't it!

So, here's to feathers large and small, fluffy and sophisticated. In the flesh they're texture and style, and as a motif, print, or painting they still carry that mischevious, or perhaps regal (depending on the feather) touch.

I guess you could call this a Feather Fanfare!

  3. You've got me hooked on feathers now too!! So many pretty feathers and items with feathers.... I think the peacock feather wine glasses are my favourite.

    I discovered a great use for feather boas last Christmas -- drape a couple of white ones across your mantel with a string of little white lights. The glowing softness is beautiful :-)

    Thanks so much for checking out my yellow vs purple post - it's always fun to "meet" new bloggers at Julia's blog party :-)
