Birds of Different Feathers


My sister loves birds and has two beautiful parrots.  I love birds too but have no desire to have one as a companion.  Maybe this is because her last bird attacked me and bit my neck, an experience that was terrifying!  Her new feathered friends have no interest in befriending me...  I suppose it's because I now put out a fear vibe.  But, they are very sweet with her and incredibly intelligent.  Instead of working out my bird issues, I am choosing to continue my relationship with the avian culture by honoring them though the creation of jewelry, feather collecting and watching them feed in our yard.  I do think I have a connection with bird spirits as I always find a fabulous feather on my hikes, when I "ask".

Hawk feathers I've found which I keep on my dresser....


The turkey feather in our front entry... a gift from my in-laws.

Hi Penny, I just spent that last 4 hours working on my blog, thought I’d come over for a visit and low and behold I chose the same backgroud as you!! Funny!!
I changed some colors but basically the same...we both have excellent taste. Hope all is well..Love your new look!

OMG!!! Okay all. I'm trying to figure out this blog design business. I was trying to experiment and couldn't get back to my original! What to do, what to do!!! I'm typically a Less is More kind of gal...not sure if this new look is working for me......

Hi Again, Yeah, I know your feelings. I was just “experimenting”..I was trying to find “gadgets” but they moved it to a new place. Now up on top is “designs”..well lets try that.! and then after I did it, I realized hey how do I get back to my old one...GONE!
I actually quite like this for you...I like the white frames on the photos, I like your”favorite book”, that’s a great new addition..I think this really shows off your photos much better...I didn’t like the red print, maybe mess around with that??...but really photos look wonderful this way. I worked on it till 12:15am almost lost the whole bloody thing!! but
we’ll get there in the end...cheers Penny..C

Very beautiful pendant and a nice collection of feathers too.:)
Someone gave me an eagle owl feather, once. It was very special to me, so I put it with a collection of feathers in a picture frame. It's a really good way to display the collection, with the name of the bird next to each feather.:)
