How to use Guinea feathers....

My Guineas give me the most beautiful feathers each and every day. What a wonderful gift! These feathers are starting to show up all over my house now and I may have to re-think my whole interior design! My cousin Julie's husband Bill made this beautiful shelf that they sent me home with from Maine. What a perfect way to dress up such a beautiful piece!

The guinea feathers look great there! Can you get enough to make a wreath? they are so pretty!

Thanks girls!
Jenny that is what I think is a reproduction of a butter mold. I will have to get more info. I bought that when I was in Maine and my cousin will know more. I'll get back to you.

OH Jenny,
I was looking for anything with a Guinea Fowl on it and I think the one at the top left looks like a guinea to me!

Those feathers from your little guinea family are perfect gifts and this is a great way of displaying them, so pretty those feathers. Your shelf is beautiful. Your cousin's husband made a beautiful piece, and I love the other decorations on it too.
