Feathers

June 29, 2010

So, I kind of have a little crush on feathers.  Not real ones mind you, the real one’s kind of creep me out for some reason.  They are beautiful and soft, but I don’t really want them in my hair.  You know what I mean?  I could wear feathers, just not real one’s.  Last year I actually entertained the idea of being a peacock for Halloween.  But that would have required making a lot of appliqued feathers on my skirt.  And I just didn’t have time.  Maybe next year. (By “next year” I mean 2011.  Halloween costume 2010 is already booked!)  So no wearing feathers in my immediate future.  Unless it was a necklace.  I”d really love a silver feather necklace.  Kind of just exactly like this one.

Or maybe kind of exactly like this one.[ Feather pendant from kellyssima etsy shop ]

And then I saw this felt one….[ felt feather necklace on sale! from danae777 ]

And in my feather “research” (read window shopping) I found a bunch of other pretty things too.  Like, a lot of them.

I could go on for days about all the little things I have a crush on.  I really could.  So I guess it’s convenient to have this handy blog to write about all those things, right?  What are your little pet crushes?  (You know, besides typewriters?)

    When saw this postI had to share my current favourite necklace with you called ‘Feather kisses’. It’s designed by a popular New Zealand singer/artist “Boh Runga” who is now based in LA. Here’s the link http://www.bohrunga.com/index.php?option=com_rsgallery2&Itemid=97&page=inline&id=74

    Thanks for featuring my Oriole necklace! I know I shouldn’t choose favorites among my pieces… but this is definitely one of them. I also love the Peacock Feather at Deedee914! Beautiful work.
