After yesterday's blog post and going on a feather "pinning spree" on Pinterest I realized how much I love feathers in design, in the home and in fashion. Faux feathers or real feathers, they are a connection to nature, a weightless beauty and symbolize the free spirit I aspire to be.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chilliest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

~ Emily Dickinson
