During our outing, we began noticing quite a theme...feathers were everywhere! Peacock feathers, pheasant feathers...you name it- it was sticking out of the plants, floral arrangements, topiaries and just about anything and everything they could stick them into! We spotted some really cool round place mats made of pheasant feathers. It really became the joke of the day for us and by the end of the trip, we had racked up quite a few feather sightings!Most of the arrangements were tastefully done, but a few were just plain tacky. I will admit though, by the end of the day, I ended up purchasing a feathered item myself...a cute little ball covered in feathers that looks perfect on one of the the mantles of my new log home. I figured that if I couldn't beat them, I might as well join them!
While this outing was mostly to assist Christa in accessorizing her home, at one point I spotted a super cute veggie bin for my kitchen and started rummaging through my over-sized purse for my tape measure. Much to my delight, as I glance up, I see my new mom and sister had just each whipped out their own tape measures from their purses...one prettier than the next! Now, I already knew that these were classy ladies, but seeing them standing their with their pretty floral tape measures in hand, I knew that we were always meant to be my family! We were three "birds of a feather", for sure!
