Show and Tell Friday



Most of the time I display an antique but today I thought I would show you my butterfly:)





I had this area in the back yard that I wanted to put something different/unique and so I bought this butterfly from a little gal I shot with in Fast Draw. She worked at customizing cars and did things like this on the side. When I told her I wanted to buy it I said the deal would have to include delivery. She agreed and crated it so that it would not fly out the back of the truck:) We have it staked to the ground for the same reason. He indeed is different...........

Wow, beautiful piece of art! What is the material? Are the wings copper? If so, it's a good thing you have a fence around it. Before our auction last month in Kansas, someone got on our property and stole ever scrap of copper they could find. I guess it's at a premium now.

I bet it is beautiful from above too! I like unique things in the yard but most of mine are antique pieces of "junk" that I cherish.

Between the unusual and beautiful butterfly and riding dirt bikes - you seem like a WOW - wild old woman. LOVE IT! Chatty

A metamorphosis of sorts . . .
