Light as a feather








I have always loved feathers, as a child I would collect as many as I could find on walks with my family, I would be drawn to anything thing on the tv or in shops with feathers on. Even as I have grown older, I buy clothes, note pads or cards etc with feather prints. 

For this summer I bought the feather print River Island skirt, which I love and have worn so many times. I also have a gorgeous peacock feather print scarf, with four peacock feathers at the end, which I love dearly. I would have to say that peacock feathers are my favourite. I love the colours and the detail and no two are the same - which applies for nearly all the feathers. 

I think I must of been an Amazon tribesman/woman in the past life, the people who would collect all the feather from brightly coloured birds then design a head dress to attract their own mate.

  7. I'm intoxicated with feathers too! I have 2 dresses with feather prints on them that I just wear to the ground ;) Something about their gentleness that magnetizes me

  8. I love feathers! I'm actually putting together a guest post for my blogger friend Emma while she's on vacation in NYC. I'm making feather earrings! They're simple to make and really light.

    I got some amazing feathers from ubTribe on Etsy.
