Blue, Yellow, Blocks & Butterflies

For some reason I am suddenly fascinated with butterflies.
Shiny necklaces.

Golden pins.
paper ones.
(actually I have admired Diane's
(Diane Knott's Musings) for some time.
(click on her blog name for more beautiful butterflies.)

Now I'm hoping to make some of my own out of music paper
and French dictionary pages.

But, for now, here is one of my few finds
being I've been cooped up for awhile.
Here are my blues and yellows.

sets of old blocks.
First I've seen with the grooves on them.
Makes for easy stacking.
(sorry, no cute words spelled out.
Just doing good to get a post up at all.)

Blessings friends

Beautiful butterfly finds! Isn't it strange how new obsessions sneak up on your? Right now I'm on the prowl for chandelier earrings, which I didn't like before...

I just had a butterfly pin of my mother's restored.

Happy Blue Monday, Barb! Check out my book giveaway.

I have always loved butterflies. This year we have had more of the real thing floating around our yard.
And you reminded me I bought some vintage blocks at a sale this weekend. I'll have to find time to "play" with them later.
