Butterflies are free

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*

You and me both. I try to be budget-friendly though, I really do. But sometimes I do think it's best to save up for the real deal!

Have a great weekend!

I have copied many high end things or found things on Ebay for a lot less than they were on 1stDibs. However, when something is truly a work of art and delicate, I believe that it is worth it for the original!

I def think this is worth the the dollars for the original. It's too unique to go with a knock off.
