find the feather (home decor)

Been wanting to play in the Moxie Fab Fascination with Feathers challenge.  Knew what I wanted to do.  One problem.  Had to wash my windows first.  Why, you ask?

Can you spot the feather(s)?  I was actually fascinated with these quail eggs I picked up at the discount store.  Wanted to use them for a natural window decoration to go with the vellumy eggs cuz they have an artistic feel to them.

So I carefully punched holes in the top and bottom of the eggs and used hot glue to attach the feather and "anchor" each to the fishing line (TIP:  one of your best friends for home decorating).  Strung a pearl on the top of each little bundle.

There are six of these bundles hanging on one piece of fishing line.  This is hung from a branch which hangs across the top of my window.  Brought it back from a walk in the woods years ago and painted it white.  You can barely see it up next to the recessed lights in the above photo.   I love to decorate it seasonally.  (Just took down the sequin hearts from Valentines Day - thus the necessary window washing :)

I'm also entering this over at Jay Gee's Nook cuz I was also inspired by her wonderful photo for challenge 17 - check out the egg wreath and branch display in the middle.  How lovely.

Thanks for visiting.  Have an idea for a feathery card so see ya soon.

What a fun idea to decorate the window this way Maria and they do look great next to the vellum eggs. Thanks so much for joining us at Jay Gee's :)
