Did you ever see that movie with Goldie Hawn? So cute. Anyhoo, I was in Jon Vaccari this morning and saw this antique glass dome with a butterfly collection inside and have been researching it online for the last three hours. My extremely expensive taste dictates that I only like these antique French versions, which range in price from $2400-$4600. Figures.
But I think this would be a great project for a crafty person. You could collect all the separate vintage elements and put it together. The operative word there is "you". I am too lazy and thus will be saving my pennies to get the real thing one day. *sigh*
