BUTTERFLY


Was able to catch a picture of this beauty after work today.  I had a lilac bush this color outside of my bedroom window growing up and so I planted one outside my daughter's window.  The butterflies seem to love it...and so do the honey bees and fuzzy bumbles - gotta be careful when you sniff! LOL!
Butterflies amaze me - their color, shape, design.  Kind of like art from heaven.


Did get the sash & hair on L.L.  The hair is ram's wool I bought at a craft show.  Uncarded...you can't get much more natural than this unless it's still on the beast! LOL!  (The check curtains she is hanging from are in the back room where I sew...I found them at a yard sale last year for $3!)


Here's to a great weekend whether you're porch-sittin', creating, thrifting, relaxing or plantin'!  EnJOY!

I love the picture of the butterfly. I also like the description of the butterfly as art from heaven. I have tried to take pictures of butterflies, but they're difficult. I will have to try again. I like your blog.
