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!
