Collections

Many of us have collections of things in our homes.   One of my favourites is butterflies; they're on the china, hanging on the walls, embroidered on linens and other places I've probably forgotten about.  Do click on the photos to enlarge.
This is 'Symbolic Love' by Debi Fitzpatrick with 2 monarchs on a pink rose.  Above the print is the set of butterfly plates by Lena Lui.
I was excited to find a set of butterfly mirrors in Bowring as I already had a single one from Pottery Barn from a trip to the US a few years ago.
The front of a card I framed.
Vintage perfume bottle.
And, a mosaic with a few more.  I'm linking with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday where you'll find more collections, of photos, displayed in interesting and fun collages.
