Feathers, Lines and Traveling....
Whew! I missed the last installment of the "feathers" theme at ESN, and I've also missed the "lines" theme for this week, well, so far anyway, but getting it done now! I went on a little trip to see my mother in Pennsylvania last week. A town called "Quakertown", population a little under 9,000 and some of the citizens are actual Quakers. I forgot how beautiful PA was, the trees are so different than what we have here in Colorado. It is autumn there as well and the colors were brilliant. It was a pretty quiet time as mom doesn't get around all that well anymore. But she did have a party in the hall in the park she lives in for my 2 brothers, my nephew and myself because all of our birthdays are in October! It was quite fun and we had cakes with our names on them and a wonderful meal with good wine and many of my mother's friends. It was a great visit, but I am glad to be home, a lot of stuff to get done (like renew my expired drivers license...) before I go back to university on Oct. 29th (can't wait to get back to work!) So I looked around at some of my fellow scavenger hunters stores to see what I could find in the vein of feathers and lines and here's what I found. This shirt from Eccentric Thrifter is a feather design, so it doesn't have any feathers fluffing off of it, but it's pretty cool design all the same.
For lines, I have found in my own store Le Petit Marché a few items that are more like "striped", but lines are stripes and stripes are lines, right? Or they probably can be.
And to finish up the "lines" theme I found this fishing cap at Embroidery Fashions Boutique. She custom embroiders all her items herself and has lots of different fishing caps to choose from. I chose the fly fishing one because there is a fishing line embroidered on it as well!
