Five gone today. They've all forgotten, slow and steady wins the race. For those behind, remember that they are getting rid of everything now. What will they be able to fling come Sept, Oct...heck even into Dec.
No, they don't compost well at all. They are practically indestructible, but they are LOVELY. And no, they would be pretty uncomfortable in a pillow, unless you are into being poked by quills. You COULD make a centerpiece with them, though. The macaw feathers are little rainbows of blue, green, and red - very pretty. I can never bring myself to throw them away, so I end up with bags of them, and I eventually either sell them on eBay or donate them to local artists.
You girls are cracking me up and if slow and steady wins the race then I'm in the lead. I added 4 more things today. An old pillowcase with a major blowout, a pair of jeans with a blowout in the crotch( mine), a pair of old tennis shoes, and a broken bag clip.
I know what to do with those feathers! Turn them into quill pens and sell them at a garage sale! A buck a pen! Having said that...I don't hold garage sales anymore, so madhen you just keep those feathers to yourself!!!
