the swans in hampton court


today at hampton court palace
i found a swan feather by the river.
the swans may belong to the queen,
but now this feather belongs to me.
thanks swan ♥

i hung it above my favourite chair
along with some white pom poms
and a little lost ghost in lace.

English swans are way more intimidating than I expected them to be. :o

I agree, they're wish granting. Sweet, sweet swans.

Swan feathers are beautiful! I had a whole collection of feathers before I moved away - in my parents' town, there was a park with a swan lake, and I'd go there and collect feathers... Good luck to you for finding more! :)

how royal to own a queen's swan feather! you should paint your nails purple and wear a cape. ;)
