You give me butterflies...

I've had a life-long fascination with butterflies and have collected them since I was 15. They just have a ethereal, magical quality about them. Somehow life just seems in harmony whenever they are around. Perhaps the secret to happiness is to surround yourself with butterflies - especially the best kind of butterflies, the ones you get in your stomach after an unexpected kiss.





One of my own secret skills is a knack for cutting out paper butterflies, I've been doing it since my early teens when I would cut them out for my younger sister to stick on my inside of her bedside lamp shade. My heart fluttered when I discovered Paul Villinski's 'Beer Can Butterflies" through {ThisIsGlamorous} some time ago and I've been in love with them ever since. In fact, they've inspired a little installation art piece of my own at home (also a little bit of wedding decor...)


Hope your summer day is filled with the very best butterflies.

Unfortunately not - although mine are quite similar - these are images by an installation by Paul Villinski

Love that butterfly umbrella! I live right next to a giant museum, which features a butterfly room. You actually have to step into this bubble first, and then you walk into the room, which is filled with free flying butterflies!! It is amazing, and I love when you realize there is a butterfly perched on your shoulder, watching you!

DOC - you're right, butterflies don't usually have much of a sexy connotation but in a few of the above they definitely do!
