The Mystic Peacock

I've always been fascinated by peacocks.

When I was a young girl, my sister and I used to go to visit my grandmother in York, England for a couple of weeks each summer. One of the highlights of visiting, would be the day trip to the York Museum Gardens. Back then, there were peacocks walking free all around the gardens and my sister and I used to hunt for stray peacock feathers that were lying around.

In retrospect, it probably wasn't very higienic but we used to ride home on the train with "Granny" with several peacock feathers that we would put in a vase in her living room.

My love of peacocks has never faded and so I found myself looking for unique peacock themed items on Etsy.

Look at the marvelous treasures I found!
