Surprise Find: Peruvian Butterfly Frame

This Sunday felt more like mid August than mid October!

With temperatures topping off in the mid 80's, I made sure to get outside and savor every moment of it.

I spent the early afternoon up at the Botanic Gardens. The foliage is simply divine right now, and there are pumpkins in fitting (and peculiar) places as they prepare for an upcoming event, Glow at the Gardens.

I delighted in a peach danish amongst all of the beauty, and after I'd wowed and swooned over all that nature had to offer there, I made my way to the gift shop which always has lovely goods. This time around I found a bit of lovely that REALLY piqued my interest.

Holy beautiful butterflies!!

I stared at this lovely set of butterflies for about 8 to 10 minutes.. while admiring them, I overheard someone say that the piece was $1800.00.

I was temporarily thrown by the cost (lol!) yet continued to stare and fall in love. I moved to the left as I studied more of the art before me, and read about what had captured my attention..
