Peacocks are so pretty, but I remember always being afraid of them when I was a child. Our local zoo had them roaming free, and I was always afraid they'd chase me! =D

Ooooo, pick me, pick me! I love the peacock -- and I LOVE the white peacock card! How incredibly gorgeous is that!?! I read Faith's story about peacocks; I live in DC, my daughter goes to school in San Diego; on a visit we went to the San Diego Zoo and the peacocks were just out and about -- and IN TREES! I didn't know they could even get up in trees! Worst comes to worse, I'll order it Friday (or more likely Saturday since I'm a weenie and don't stay up late!) Mary

I am bowled over by the cards I've seen so far, for sure I will be getting this set if I am not lucky enough to win it. Even though I already have one peacock stamp, this is too good to miss.
Sorry I won't make the launch party - the time-zone difference always knocks me out of those events.

Ohhhh! How this sneek peek reminds me of Doc Christiansen, our rural med man for the entire valley!!! His aviary hobby was a life cycle lesson each time we went to his med place for treatment or physicals. How those peacocks loved to challenge us! Then came the feather gorgeous flair. I anticipate many a day brightener crafted for octogenarian relatives, Doc's former clients.
