Feather flowers

My latest idea to earn a few bucks is feather flowers. They were really hot sellers in the 1960s, and they seem to be coming back. I made them back then, when I was a child, so I’m making them now. Mom would take them to the swap meet on a Saturday, and we would sit on the tailgate of the station wagon making more feather flowers because they always sold out. The big sellers were realistic-looking roses. For today’s market, I think wild and crazy blooms will do better.

Here are some photos of my feather flowers:

Blacky kitty just had to help.

She also killed a vicious feather flower to purrtect me.
