I was given a pheasant pelt (complete with the tail feathers) about 25 years ago. I mounted it on a grape wreath vine and embellished it with bittersweet, magnolia leaves and other autumnal foliage...I was enamored! From then on I wanted pheasant feathers in my decor. Though long, quality feathers can be costly, they are much more reasonable and available today than all those years ago. Does anyone else like or use pheasant feathers? Photos: 1) I have several pheasant ornaments; pheasant placemats from Twiggery; Pheasant lamp from Old Wildlife Decor; needlepoint pillow from Decor Medley; handbag from Ferragamo; dishes from Pottery Barn (now unavailable); pheasant boutonniere; pheasant writing lap desk from Robin King Designs; this last one....vintage and a little over the top!
