Butterflies - Part 1


My sister's birthday is coming up and I want to get her something special (it's one of the milestones). So I headed over to the Mississippi Craft Center this weekend. My sister loves butterflies and they have many unique items there.

These butterflies certainly qualify as unique! They are made entirely from wine corks. Either of them would make a lovely gift, but unfortunately they are out of my price range. I'm still looking, if anyone has any gift ideas.

Look for more butterflies tomorrow.

I wonder if the high price of the unique butterfly plaques - is how the artists pays for all the wine it takes to get enough corks to make them? ;) They are unique. I got a gift recently of a Jim Shore figurine. It's Bambi looking at a small butterfly on his tail. It's pretty cute. It's probably not expensive enough for a milestone birthday. If you type
JIM SHORE DISNEY TRADITIONS into your browser bar, you can probably find the Bambi figurine. If your sister collects Deer and Butterflies, it will be perfect!

If it is a milestone birthday. Go to almost any large store and pick up one of a dozen varieties of Atomic Clocks. They keep the exact time and are stylish. And the day and date is also kept.

How about a butterfly bush? They're easy to grow, and they attract a lot of butterflies.

Cork butterflies? That is really craftsy! These are neat.
