Show & Tell: Forced Spring!

Leaving Valentine's day behind, but still enjoying a little red.
See my butterflies?

I had admired painted looking stickers online, and thought of painting my own birds in flight because the price was so high. Imagine my surprise to find these butterflies at the Dollar Tree.

Just as exciting to find so many in each package.


Sure does break up this big space...


All these for just TWO whole dollars! (and a shot of Uno cat for good measure!) If I decide I don't like them, or want them else where, I just peel them off.
(the photos really don't show the detail of each butterfly, they are swirly, with grays, greens and blues)



And for another dollar:
'laugh, live, love, hope, peace, joy, dream...'



I love them! Happy Show & Tell Friday!!!

Where did you find those words? I am simply dying to stencil, or find stickers and place them up along the ceiling of my rooms. Haven't decided on the words, but they are calling me!

If a winged insect gets into your house, you might not be able to spot the real one from the fake ones!

I like this idea of bringing spring indoors. I think the butterflies make your room more cheerful.
