I have a great many things on my walls of my room at home. My tastes in art varies from tropical themes to asian accents. One of my favorite items is this butterfly I bought while in Key West, FL in 2006. I know you can't see the colors well in this photo, but it's black with green and blue markings. I made my purchase at Wings of Imagination, and have every intent of making another in the future.
I have always loved the colors of butterflies. As a child I was lucky enough to catch one in my hands, and I didn't want to open them because I knew that butterfly would flit away on the breeze. But then of course, as moms often do, she made me release it. I would later catch lightening bugs in a jar and release them into the house....which was actually quite funny. Mom didn't think so though.
It's amazing, the care instructions that came with the butterfly are so detailed.
- Do not place in direct sunlight, as it will cause the butterfly to fade.
- Do not use Windex to clean the the Plexiglas box, the chemicals could cause the butterfly to disintegrate.
- Be gently with your butterfly, as any rough jolt could cause it to break.
- Dust the box with a soft, dry cloth.
