Feathers and Ties

This upcoming Sunday one of my good friends is getting married. It's going to be a beautiful wedding...the ceremony is going to be on one of Vancouver's most lovely of beaches--Third Beach.

D and I have been preparing our wardrobes...ok well, I have...I bought a vintage silk tie and I silk screened a feather on it (I collected feathers and made the screen).

He's going to look spiffy.

Biking around

FINALLY, the weather has cleared up and it's starting to look like summer in Vancouver. D and I went on a bike ride yesterday (as we often do)--we wanted to do a "tour de duck"...there were little baby ducks by the athlete's village on the weekend but because I worked, I didn't get to see them so D wanted to take me to see them and sooooooo begun our tour de duck which turned out to be more of a tour de birds or something....whatever, it was fun!

Some pics:

I also collected some really pretty feathers along the way. Since I started collecting them, I've noticed them everywhere!
