Thrifted Butterflies

I found a bag of six crocheted butterflies at the thrift store. What was someone thinking? I didn't even know what I was thinking until I got them home.

Where I decided to hang half of them from the living room ceiling on fishing line.


And perch the rest on a hickory branch from the yard. Right now, this family of butterflies is receiving all my love.

Oh, and mine too! Those butterflies are beautiful and I think you're quite smart to recognize that treasure trove and to know just what to do with them.

I also covet that pillow I see on your couch in the background and the one that was in your shop a day or two ago...

Very sweet and simple displaying them like that.

Oh my goodness--I ADORE this idea. I think it looks sweet, simple, yet sophisticated. How could someone get rid of those!?

I love your creativity Anna and your eye for finding special treasures.
I always feel a little sad when I find something like that - wondering why there was noone in that family to cherish those handmade treasures. I'm glad they've found a good home :-)
