Peacock Splendor...

Please join Smiling Sally for her Blue Monday party. It's always so much fun to see all things "blue"!

Today I'm sharing a centerpiece favorite, my peacock. I saw him in a decorating boutique several years ago. The decorator had used a life~sized mannequin with a Christmas tree as her skirt. The skirt was all things blue, purple, green and with peacocks scattered about. It was breathtaking!

I purchased one...here he is in all his splendor!


He's made of tin and sprinkled with glitter. I just love his sweet face.



I have a rectangular mat placed under his feet...it's the prettiest shade of baby blue.



I hope you have enjoyed seeing something blue today...
Enjoy your Monday!

  1. That is lovely! My husband's aunt had a supposedly decorative pair that were hideous and became the family joke outside of her range of hearing. They actually frightened young children. I think she paid a lot for them and therefore thought they were automatically tasteful.

  9. Pretty cool details on this piece. Peacocks are just such magnificent creatures. If only their voice were as beautiful as their looks.
