Thanksgiving makes me think of Turkeys.  Turkeys make me think of feathers.  And thinking of feathers got me thinking about how you can incorporate them in your decor.  So I did a little searching and came up with some inspiration for you!  Hope you enjoy!

Using a couple of feathers in a jar on a mantel is a creates a rustic look.

Love the feather covered lamp shade here – keeps it traditional but not overly flashy.

Just a gathering of feathers in a bowl can make a beautiful natural display.

Of course – over the last couple of years – feathers have made a big impact in holiday decorating as well.  Here are some great ideas to accent your mantle, wreath or tablescape for the holidays.

Using a feather boa across a mantel creates a winter wonderland look with crystal and metallic accents.

The pheasant tail center piece is my fave..Course I love the room too! I have loved feathers on display since grandma had peacock feathers in a tall vase when I was a kid. I always say I'm going to get some, but I am more pheasant that peacock, wonder what that means??

I love the snow boa! I don't have a mantle...but surely I could find a way to recreate that.

Great pictures. I love that feather centerpeice. I just threw some feathers in a tarnished old silver sugar urn the other day and sat it on my hallway table and it reminds me of the first photo.

Ooh, I love the aesthetic of a well-placed feather! Peacock is my favorite.
