    I absolutely love this. I especially like how it looks fantastic both with and without the lights. The colors, the textures….so fabulous. I want to reach out and touch it! Wonderful job.

    1. Thank you so much Kristin. I love touching it 😉

  3. Beautiful! You are so talented!

    1. Thanks so much Mary. You are always so sweet.

    1. Thanks Cassie. I love finding things on my walks.

  4. LITERALLY MY FAVORITE TREE! You blew it out of the park on this one, great job!

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Melaine. I really appreciate the compliment.

  5. Beautiful but I can’t believe your cats leave the feathers alone? The one time I had feather decorations for the holidays mine disassembled them overnight. lol

    1. I caught Walter twice batting some grass pieces around 🙂 The odd thing is that he only cared about the feathers when I just brought them home. I had them in a vase on my desk and he stopped being interested after a while. The other two could care less. I think it helps that they have their catio and can play with other stuff out there.

      1. You must have better behaved cats then mine. lol Mine have a huge screen room and plenty of toys yet must kill feathers.

        1. LOL! I’ve heard that from a couple of people. I have caught my Walter batting a couple of grasses around a couple of times. When I found the feathers and put them on my desk in a small vase he was all over them. Now he’s not all that interested anymore 😉 The other two are well-behaved and could care less.

  6. Why didn’t you make one for me? *g*
    Really love that tree, Julia. Fabulous!

  7. It’s so gorgeous Julia! And it just glows with the lights.

    1. Thanks Kathy! It turned out a bit darker than I had hoped but the lights definitely help.

  8. Once again, you come up with a way to reinvent Christmas decor – and nail it! I love, love, love this idea!

    1. Thanks so much for the sweet compliment Nancy 🙂

    1. Thank you so very much Ginny.

  9. This is incredibly beautiful! You are so creative and the composition is fantastic.

    Unfortunately, the foraged feathers might get you into trouble, depending on the species, as allmost all native North American birds fall under the (U.S.) North American Migratory Bird Act. I would add some kind of warnig about that to the post, or just suggest buying legal feathers to be on the safe side. I think this post is a good first read to get an overview: https://www.featherfolio.com/blog/guide-to-legal-and-illegal-feathers-in-the-usa

    1. Hmmm interesting. I had no idea. I didn’t buy them or am going to sell them. They are feathers I found on my walks on the ground and I would never kill a bird (I hunting) for its feathers. Thanks so much for the info.
