I was in the dollar store and
they called to me…pick us up.
Take us home, and make
something Christmassy and fun
with us. Determined not to be
sucked in, I walked away, left
them there on the shelf, “no, I
am not buying you, I have no
need for turquoise feathers.”
Oh who am I kidding….of course
I went back and grabbed them
after all Bootsie loves feathers
he might find a use for them.
So there they sat for a few weeks, silently mocking me after the Boo took one sniff and refused to go near them again. I decided that our tree needs some feather wreaths, turquoise feather wreaths to be exact.
Simple to make, I cut a circle out of heavy card stock, and put some glue on it, then started to glue the feathers on in a circular pattern.
Lots of glued to my fingers later….the finished product has a few sparkles, and shiny turquoise sequins on it, and a white bow. Perfect for my tree, or as a tag on a cute package.
I wanted to tell you what happened to me yesterday…I was out walking as the sun went down, and thought I saw a seagull flying towards me, the wings spread and slowly flapping. I was thinking I should watch out, they tend to splatter…so I looked up as it flew directly overhead. It was a full grown eagle,right over my head…and behind it, a juvenile…and then another eagle.
Breathtaking and wondrous are the words that I would use to describe seeing these majestic birds in my backyard, I’m in awe.
