birds of a feather

These days, I'm really digging anything with feathers. Perhaps it's because I imagine them fluttering on the wings of birds, or peacefully floating in the wind. They are the ultimate picture of freedom, and I like my freedom. I've begun incorporating them in the everyday, whether printed on shirts, dangling on earrings, or crammed in my purse on my dream catcher key chain. Yes, I am aware that the latter is not the most practical place, but I figure it catches my bad thoughts throughout the day.
These are one of my favorite pairs of feathery baubles.
Urban Outfitters.
I've been on the lookout for a feather bracelet. I have found a few favorites on Etsy that I am in dire need of. However, seeing all of other people's creations is inspiring me to make my own. I sense a DIY project in the near future...

Until I find/make the perfect, little ornament for my wrist to symbolize the joys of not being tied down, I suppose I could just hum Lynyrd Skynyrd.

  2. Yes! Instant fan, even though I could never pull the pieces off.
