Butterflies and friends

Everything is closed here today for the holiday and I had run out of white spray paint. An emergency phone call went out to my BFF.  Thank goodness she had a can and I’ve just finished the final coat on a couple of items, I’ll show you later.
She had wanted to do the butterfly paper art for her bedroom. GW to the resuce, where she had found these two pictures for $4.00 a piece.
We removed the backing, kept the matting and (she) chose some paper from the wallpaper books I got from FreeCycle.  Using my Cricut, we cut out the butterflies, playing with the size until they were perfect.
They turned out beautifully and will look smashing in her room.
Her visit was a welcome respite from the drudgery known as my back yard make-over.

It's the 77th Metamorphosis (how appropriate) Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, you should go see all the wonderful changes being made this week.


  1. wow, you've done so much since I first started following you it's amazing! Love what you've done to you home. You're super creative!:)
    I've updated my blog now from shabby item hunting to spray tanning, and I'm super excited about that. Come check my blog out when you can.
