Butterflies: Bug Under Glass

Yes it's yet another Etsy related post, this time about Bug Under Glass.

Growing up I was in love with a blue framed butterfly my parents had hanging on a wall in our home, and I vowed to convince them to give it to me one day. Unfortunately sun exposure through the window "bleached" the butterfly and he's no longer as beautiful as he once was.

Funnily enough just this week I had been browsing online at Deyrolle's website, looking for framed butterflies while figuring I couldn't afford them, when I stumbled across a post on one of my favorite blogs (and one of the first blogs I started reading) Decor8. The post mentioned Bug Under Glass and their gorgeous collection of framed butterflies and bugs. Not only affordable but all sourced ethically from WWF approved sources. Joy!
