Feathers – Etsy, Doll made by Ellen

Going cuckoo for feathers this season (no pun intended, lollerskates) Very tempted to follow suit of Carole Gould and take advantage of a dead bird for free feathers… also won’t mind if I can find a pretty bird and assist euthanasia, for it will most definitely be in pain from some discomfort or other, like styrofoam constipation or pea-brain Alzheimer’s…

  3. the blue greenish ones are lovely! hopefully those birds are quick enough to avoid you and your DIY desires! LOL

  4. feathers are so beautiful. They are the most luxurious acessory. I’m kind of wanting some sort of feather epaulet.

  10. i love the feathers too

  11. Love Ellen’s doll, love the editing on your photos, and I especially love the humour. Definitely a refreshing change of pace from most fashion blogs.

  12. Crazy feathers & even crazier doll. Love em all! You should make a necklace out of those feathers or a feathers on shoulder accessory with chains? eLLy

  13. oo those feathers are amazing. i bought a bunch of feathers a while abck and never bothered to do anything with them..hmm maybe i should start! I can’t wait to see what you get up to with those!

  14. wow, great close up photography! Is it shot from your new 30mm lens?

  15. Gah, welcome to the feather-obsession club. You are fully fledged! Hah, I feel your pain and hell yes I want and will take the feathers any way I can!

  16. Hey – I’ve just realised I was at the Jasper Garvida show with you…I totally should have come to say hello, I LOVE your blog! Great day eh? Shame I had to rush off after the show. Anyways, I hope you had fun…xx

  17. I had a fixation with feathers last f/w season but for some reason it felt wrong on me… like i was trying to hard to be some fashionista at work…

    I think in your profession/area/industry it works well with you. I work in a non-creative office. It stinks. I still love the idea of feather fascinators–if I could get away with it here in this building!

  18. I’ve been noticing feathers more lately… especially those oily black ones.

    But seriously, PLEASE do not pick up flowers off of a dead bird! They are covered in parasites… ick.

  19. I’ve featured your great chained denim shorts on a collage-post on my blog :)
    Really like your blog and all your DIY!

  20. hahaha love the pun…and i love feathers as well

    cant get enough

  21. I’m waiting for the day my cat stops bringing in mangled pigeons and instead I get something good, like a pheasant. Useless cat.

  22. “also won’t mind if I can find a pretty bird and assist euthanasia, for it will most definitely be in pain from some discomfort or other, like styrofoam constipation or pea-brain Alzheimer’s…”

    okay. for those of us who love animals and want to punch you in the face for saying something so stupid. please note that there are synthetic type feathers at craft stores, really nice ones, ranging from hawk to peacock so that no birds will be harmed in the making of such a fad. that u will not wear next year anyway. please consider other lives when making such frivolus human desires.
