butterflyPosted: October 19, 2011
the LAST thing in the world i want is anything butterfly-themed.
(ok, maybe not LAST. cat stuff is worse.)
but butterflies? no thank you.
they’re just not for me.
i suppose i’ve seen some OK butterflies done right. heck, i even thrifted a single brass butterfly wall hanging thingie now that i think about it.
so i’m a liar.
ok, let’s put it this way, as a general rule i’m not a fan of the butterfly in decor, on fabrics, on tee-shirts, pink and purple butterfly themed bedrooms, you know what i mean.
i was drawn in.
in a vast sea of terrible handbags hanging along the goodwill wall, what’s that i see poking out looking all needlepointy and handmade and 70s retro and tempting?
the lure of the vintage butterfly needlepoint tote bag called to me.
and i answered her $3.99 call….
