  2. Ha! My foyer is full of turkey feathers. They are beautiful in an oriental vessel. Who knew a turkey could dress up a house? :)

  14. Beautiful vignette, and how exciting to find owl feathers near your house! I never see anything neat like that..usually it's like today when I ran over to a little shopping center near our house... someone had run over a possum in the parking lot and a buzzard was inspecting it. :p ICK!
    I would much have preferred seeing owl feathers or a nice bird's nest...or a conk.
    Love your orchid and it's pot and hope I didn't gross you out. Thanks for sharing.

  15. A long time ago you said in a post you would tell your methods for keeping the orchids beautiful and blooming again and again. Could you do that? You have such beautiful ones around your house. I was given several orchids for Christmas and would like to enjoy them for a long time. I love to read your blog. Thank you......Susan

  18. Joan,
    How creative to use the found owl feathers on your lovely dove (or is that a pigeon?).

    Love the orchid too.

    Stumbled on your blog almost a year ago(maybe more) & have loved it since. I ended up reading all your posts through the night, the day I found your blog. You have tremendous patience and perseverance & an amazing vision. Kudos!
