PRETTY AS A PEACOCK

On a recent visit to the Bronx Zoo, I became mesmerized by a flock of peacocks strutting in a nearby field.  Fanning their gorgeous plumes for visitors, the peacocks were a sea of deep blues and greens;  delicate eye candy. This fall the peacock's jeweled blues and greens are inspiration for a host of vibrant fashion and home accessories, fabrics and paints-pick up something peacock and strut your stuff!

I did a whole post on peacocks and was inspired by my trip to the Bronx Zoo, as well. Aren't they just the loveliest creatures to look at...so gorgeous!

I am in love with your peacock photo. Any chance you have a larger file of it that you would be willing to send me?

My lovely wife has been looking for the Kate Spade teal peacock brooch. I want to surprise her on her B-day (2/27). I have called all U.S. Kate Spade and online stores. None carry it any longer. Anybody know where I can still find it? Or anybody willing to sell it? Please post a website I can refer to. :)
