Natural Parrot Feathers=Beautiful Feather Earrings

Today I am a little behind showing the beautiful things other artists are doing with their feathers!
We have had so many storms, floods, heatwaves and in particular power failures, that my computer's brains are a bit scrambled (from the power failures)  and my brains have been scrambled from the heat! I have been looking for the most recent pictures you guys have sent me. If you receive a communication from me asking you to resend pics of your beautiful creations~well blame it on the weather or a senior moment! 

These lovely earrings were created from the natural parrot feathers I sell. Very feminine, very sensuous and a lovely earring to wear. You can see other feather earring creations by, she has a feather jewelry store and would love for you guys to visit!

New Marbled Parrot Feathers!

We have survived the storm that blew through (and thank you everyone for being patient) We were without power for three days, others are not so lucky and they are still without power (my 83 year old mother included). Trees fell all around us, in our area no one was injured. We really lucked out!

SO take a look at the new marbles. I will start listing them in my Etsy store  over the next week~and I am continuing on with even MORE marbling.

When the Chimera comes knocking at your door (it's already too late!)

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter--bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart"

description of a chimera~Quote by Stephen Crane

Chimeras are insatiable~they chew you up and spit you out. They look like regular human beings.
I met one. But only one out of three hundred and something wonderful people who have purchased my feathers, it ain't too bad!

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Whew! Well cleaning up the garden with all those weeds, the rain, the heat~ took me 1-1/2 weeks longer than I had bargained for. The irony of it is 15 years ago there was a burning pit in the middle of the yard. I excavated it and planted  my lilly perenials. I thought if each year I planted perenials eventually I could get rid of the grass and have a labor free garden.  Oh Yea! WRONG!  Since my marbling session is late in starting~today, the fourth of July, I am ready to occupy the kitchen and get down and dirty!

Another Beautiful Creation with Marbled and Natural Parrot Feathers!

Isn't this absolutely gorgeous? This was made by Desiree Grace @ 3 Gypsies in Davenport Iowa. I am so happy when I can see what artists are creating with my marbled feathers. The lemon yellow feathers are the natural head feathers of the cockatoo and the marbled feather is an originally white cockatoo wing feather.

Hey everyone, keep sending me pics of your creative endeavors~I will immediately show them off in my blog!
