I’ve inadvertently started collecting feathers.

I don’t know how it happened. Actually, I do. It kind of started in India when I’d take walks in and through Deer Park (which I lived closed to). It wasn’t uncommon to see peacocks roaming around the park and each time I saw one I’d silently pray that one would lose a feather so that I could bring it home and frame it as a reminder. After 10 months, I didn’t find a single peacock feather.

Fast forward a few months and I was walking to work and spotted a feather. Not a peacock feather mind you but a feather none-the-less. So I picked it up, put it in-my purse in between the pages of a magazine and brought it home. A few weeks, I found another. Then I went to Ireland, and found another. I returned and while taking Howard for a walk, yup – found another. And then last week, another. So now I have five. Five feathers. What to do with them…

I decided to frame two of them (because, to be honest, I can’t remember where I’ve stashed the other three…I know they’re somewhere around here). It was the easiest DIY project ever so I’m not going to go through a detailed step-by-step; anyone can do it. Literally. Find a feather. Frame it.

I picked up the frame in the as-is section of IKEA and paid $6 (there’s nothing visibly wrong with the frame) and the feathers were free. So this project cost all of $6. I love the simplicity of it and can’t wait to hang it somewhere in my apartment (when I finally find the one). Such an easy way to add artwork to your home.
