All a Flutter

What's It Wednesday #117
A sure sign of spring is beautiful flowers and the shimmer of delicate wings flitting among the blooms. Here's a way to enjoy their images even if your temperatures are less than cooperative.

I put together these white peonies that can withstand any weather and immediately it attracted a slew of golden butterflies. Wouldn't it make a gorgeous bouquet for a spring bride?

The butterflies seem to flock to my dream catcher too, my favorite way to keep them on display. I love gold frames and these with netting and lace inserts are easy to make dream catchers, and a perfect home for my golden beauties. I only collect the gold one to keep the neutral tones.

With the shelf underneath it becomes a kind of inspiration board for all the dreams I hope to accomplish. So I guess you'd call it a dream maker.

Spring is here, I'm inspired, and all a flutter!
Hugs,
Patti
