This image from Lonny has been stuck in my head for awhile.
Whenever I find butterfly taxidermy in a shop though, it is always hundreds of dollars. (for a large piece) Imagine my shock when I was walking through Home Goods yesterday and spied this.
When I first saw it, I thought, “oh, that’s pretty!” It’s hard to tell here (darn those cell phone images), but the orange in the butterflies is really vivid and striking. I really thought they were fake upon first glance, but then I looked closer.
Totally real. AHHHHH!! I was so excited. But the price?? Not mind-blowingly low, but still GREAT considering what I have seen. Plus this piece is BIG – a good 3 feet x 3 feet, I would guess.
Now the frame is okay, but I think a good gold leaf job would work wonders for it. Yes?
Have you ever made an amazing Home Goods find?
