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.
