Behind Glass

On our honeymoon, Andy bought me a framed blue butterfly to match the one I’d gotten tattooed on my wrist. I kept it in the window of my office for year, which unfortunately was a horrible idea since the sun bleached all of the lovely color from my beloved butterfly. When we went back to Savannah this past November, Andy bought me another blue butterfly from the very same shop the original came from. My original butterfly is now on the bookshelf in my bedroom and its replacement is on a bookshelf, far away from the window, in my work office.

Since that first butterfly, I’ve found myself gravitating to them more and more when it comes to home decor. Now this isn’t to say that I’ve gone butterfly crazy, just because it falls within that motif doesn’t mean that I’ll like it, but realistic renderings and framed arrangements? Now, those are right up my alley.

My collection is still quite small; I am trying to be very choosy about what I invest in. Also, Andy finds them just a tad creepy so I definitely don’t want to go overboard, but bit by bit, I am integrating them. Someday I will have a display as lovely as one of these.
