A Feather Bouquet

I love using feathers in all kinds of arrangements, and I even like to have an urn full of feathers like a bouquet.  I think all the different colors are so pretty.

I've had this wonderful bouquet of feathers on the bathroom counter for a while, and it suddenly dawned on me that another bouquet might be just what I was looking for to change up my end table vignette.

I think these feathers will work really well with my rooster lamp and my little frenchy farm couple.

 Isn't the light wonderful shining through them.

A simple vignette with my rooster, frenchy farm couple and a bouquet of feathers, just enough for my sidetable. (Oh yeah, I do need the peanut butter cups too.)

So tell me how do you use feathers?

  3. This is so pretty, Marty! I love your feathers and the vignette looks lovely. I've never had any feathers and may just have to get some. Everything you do turns out beautifully! Hope your week is going well. Thank you always for your visits.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  4. No feathers here yet....but if I happen on some at a sale...well, you know!! Looks good!

  5. Oh My Gosh! Is that ever stunning! I love that and I never would have thought to do just feathers.


  6. I used pheasant feathers in my Christmas greenery and tree the last two years. We even have a pheasant in our subdivision that I get a peak at occasionally. The feathers are not his however.

  7. Marty I love your use of feathers. I always think I should save some when the chickens drop them though they aren't as regal as the feathers you have. Are they pheasant?

    1. Yes, Pheasant that I got online, I can't remember where, but there were several places that sold them really quite economically, at least much less than Michael's or Hobby Lobby.

  8. Marty, this vignette is beautiful. I love your little farm couple, and you're right, the feathers are the perfect finishing touch. You have such great style. laurie

  9. Marty- I used to have feathers in a couple places and then we got a kitty and the kitty attacked them. Now the kitty is gone and I wish I had my feathers back! Your vignette is beautiful and I think the peanut butter cups are the feather in your cap, Marty! xo Diana

  10. Your new vignette looks great with the urn full of feathers.

  11. Marty,
    Love, LOVE, L O V E the feathers in the urn with your Rooster lamp and Frenchy Farm couple!!!
    Amazing side table vignette!!!
    Oh, yes...and love the peanut butter cups, too, dear friend!!!
    I use feathers in my Christmas Tree, Thanksgiving centerpiece and sometimes in the Entry Hall!
    Have a marvelous day!!!

  12. I have to keep my feathers under cloches because of my kitties! There is NOTHING that matches the beauty of nature, is there?

    Love your style!



  13. I love your feather bouquet, Marty! The whole table vignette is wonderful. Cute farmer couple too. Save a peanut butter cuo for Joe, they are his favorite:) XO, Pinky

  14. I love your feather bouquets. So pretty. I have got to buy some feathers, yours look so pretty.

  15. I have given you a shout out! I love love love the idea of the feathers with the clock and it will be perfect on my husbands side of our vanity. hugs, Nancy

  16. pretty! I used to have a bunch of pheasant feathers that I put out at thanksgiving.. but they got pretty beat up and I threw them away a few years ago.. this makes me think I should get some more! LOL!
    have a great weekend

  17. Hi Marty, I'm stopping by and following you from the Bloglovin blog hop. I love your feather bouquet!! It so classic and kinda works for both ladies and gents!!

  18. Might steal this idea. Love that vignette in the bath - simple and elegant!

  19. This post has inspired me to use feathers as bouquets! Never thought about it before! Thanks for sharing.

  20. The peanut butter cups are definitely the perfect touch to your wonderful feathers.

  21. I love moving things around too. I was thinking of gluing some feathers on some owl ornaments I am making for my Christmas tree. Looks very nice. And yes, the candy is very important there.

  22. Your feathers look lovely, Marty. I love that rooster lamp, such a great piece.


  23. I love your feather arrangements, Marty!
    You know I am telling the truth too.
    I have them in abundance here too.

    LOVE LOVE your new masthead.
    Looks awesome.

  24. I have a few pheasant feathers tucked into a silk floral design I have. They always add a really neat dimension.

    I also have a floor vase with white peacock feathers from an albino peacock from a park we visited we were given - that was the day my husband proposed to me. I cherish them.

    One of these days I will share pics of them but until this renovation is done everything is put away. And did I mention it is absolutely driving me crazy with my world turned upside down? LOL.

    Love your new display, looks AWESOME!
