I have always thought there was something magical in the irredescence of peacock feathers. My first exposure to their magic was when I was a toddler visiting Nowra Animal Park with Mum and Nana May. (Both of whom are my angels now).
As I have been reconsidering dance performances I have also been reconsidering designing and making my own costumes. Today I discovered that the local dollar store in Enmore had some very beautiful peacock feathers for only $1 each! After going home and checking the bank balance and visiting the ATM I returned to select 20 of their finest.
Between the ATM and the dollar store I was way-laid at Amazing Paper. Such a dangerous shop for me! But I plan to make presents and cards out of this lot. (Unfortunately I’m not able to rotate these pics… no idea why… I think I’m going to have to leave it like this for today 😦 … will fix it soon though). The final picture I will leave you with today is the contents of an envelope I received today from one of my Aussie Swap-Bot friends. I really love all the teas, stickers and little butterfly and ladybird brads! It’s all so cute! Thanks @Mappy! I also received another envelope full of lovely papers from the very generous and sweet @ozduchess. I am so blessed to know so many genuine people! Getting such wonderful things in the mail really makes my day that little bit brighter!!
