flutterby...butterfly magic















...every day some magic flits into our lives. If we are lucky enough, we might just harness some of it to keep for ourselves...

...as we were getting ready for one of last year's parties, this huge and feathery velveteen-like moth flew about the house finding favorite spots to rest...yes, the one you can tell is moving among the sparkly and soulful creations from Jill Schwartz .

This mini-me "mothra" seemed to harbor a mildly mad infatuation with Ashley Carter's glittery butterflies . Can you blame him?

I confessed my own similarly passionate feelings for Ashley's winged Goldbug Studio creations in a recent confession to friend and fellow collector Gina Chambers (shown here with gal pal, doll artist Nicol Sayre). Gina has seen me, as all real friends should and still love me, at my best and worst...but Gina, I surrender, you are simply a faster runner than I! You fly!
I am so glad you flitted into my life Gina, Nicol and Donna, and all of you that flutterby and fill my home with magic and joy...visit again soon.

xxoo Jen
