Spring Charm

Here's a quick and easy spring project for you... I found this link on A Holy Experience (Thank you, Ann, yet again!) and decided to try making these beautiful butterflies with my own special twist.  I used old Martha Stewart magazines (they are chock full of interesting colors and textures), but instead of pipe cleaners I used some jewelry wire to make them a bit more sophisticated. Check out the first link for a tutorial on how to make these delicate decorations.  
They look lovely hanging from the bamboo window shades and my pot rack. 

There's nothing better than ushering in the (long awaited!) season with some simple charm


  1. ooh. I think we're going to do this today! Thanks for this beautiful idea, your version is very nice

  2. You're very welcome. :) I'd love to see how yours turn out!

  3. I live in your colors and curves and angles.
