An Ode to Plumes

We are thankful for so many things.  We are thankful for our health, we are thankful for our family, and we are thankful for our friends.  We are thankful for people enjoying the treasures we have found on our hunts.  And, when we sat down to talk about what we could post in Thanksgiving, so many things came to mind.  Many serious, and many just a bit cheeky and silly.  So, as a compromise, we decided to do a Post in honor of our feathered friends.  Birds, thank you for nourishing us this Thanksgiving and thank you for your beautiful Plumes!

Talk about being thankful!  How thankful are we for the wonderful women who make these Bamileke African Feather Headdresses? 
We. Can't. Take. It.  
We know these have been shown quite a bit but we just love them.  We've been remodeling a living room fireplace (reno post coming soon) and we think we are set on putting up a burnt orange one smack-dab in the middle of it!

This mysterious looking floor lamp made of black goose quill feathers is by Pluma Cubric. We see this adding an edgy vibe to an otherwise traditional sitting space. The white hanging version on the other hand is so romantic! How sweet would this be in a little girl's room or even in her mom's dressing space! By special order through

Funky salad servers. These beauties add a touch of softness to an otherwise modern dinner affair!

Feathers in Art!

Check out these images by London-based artist, Kate MccGuire.  She used bits of bones and pigeon feathers to create the subjects for these photos and installations.....

The sculptures are actually quite beautiful....

Feathers in Fashion!

Chanel (as usual) showed feathers in their Spring 2011, ready-to-wear show and then Kate Moss steps out in this feathered babydoll for Louis Vuitton Spring 2012!  

This adorable and fun minidress has a knot-front crinkle chiffon bodice and a layered feather skirt.  Style:  Plume by Ivy & Aster
Spring 2012 Bridal Fashion Week. Monique Lhuillier.  The skirt of the gown is made up of a mixture of frayed organza and feather embroidery.  The style is appropriately named Legend.  

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  We are truly thankful to all of you who shop our store and read this blog.  Have a wonderfully blessed meal this afternoon!

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; 
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
