Things I love that I wish I didn't...

Lately I have been very inspired by butterflies, which is strange, because if you know me...I don't seem like a "butterfly" sort of person.

As a rule, I am not a fan winged beasts...angels, fairies, birds, bugs, what have you. But butterflies, what can I say, I love them.

When I was a littlew girl my beautiful Aunt Sylvia has framed butterflies thoughout her fantastic apartment...the also had wood door beads and a killer drug habbit...but as a child she was the most beautiful thing I could think of, and so were the butterflies.

She died young, but everytime I saw a butterfly, I thought of her. So, 11 years ago when I decided to get a tatoo of a butterfly on my leg, I never thought that less than a year after that they would become trendy...I started having 15 year old girls rush up to me sqealing about it, asking me if it was real or if it was henna. So not cool for me....

So lately I have been inspired once again by the butterflies, the idea of the transformation, the beauty, their delicate nature.

I am writing about it now because Keith asked me if I was using butterflies just "because"...

the answer to that is...I am not doimg it just because.

The second thing that I love that I wish I didn't is......Justin Timberlake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that's all...oh and tomorrow I am going to be the guest blogger on my dear froend Aaron's website Funky look for me there too!!

The piece featured today is an art card that will be listed in my etsy store.
