Well Lucky (or unlucky for you), I might have hit an all time low with my thriftiness. If that's possible?
I have gone to reincarnation.
You know, in my former life I was a butterfly, in this life I am wall art.
Yes, I did.
I was driving down the road in the Gulf State Park (I am on vacation this week on the AL Gulf Coast) and I see a butterfly in the road.
I knew it was dead. But something told me to stop.
So I did.
And I picked up it's little lifeless body and thought .......wall art.
I mean, wouldn't YOU?
God forbid, when I pass on one day that Big Daddy do that to me.
I don't think this old bod would qualify as art even today....but I digress.
So I picked up the butterfly and stopped at the Dollar General just a couple miles away and I purchased a frame for $1.00 and some art spray sealant for less than $2.00.
And I went home and ever so carefully sprayed the butterfly's body and allowed it to dry and then I transformed it to this frame that sits on the computer table.
Tell me I am not warped. It's been done before. I have seen them artfully put into frames. I have! And really, this is a better resting place than the front of someone's Suburban grill, right?
I'm not crazy.
Say it, please....so my family will not commit me.
Framed butterfly wall art=$3.00
**Please do not use live animals or insects for use in wall art** :)
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
Today's tablescape comes by way of my friend Jim and his wife Renee. Jim shared with me his wife's beautiful tablescape. Aren't the strawberry plates so summery? As are the fresh daisies!!
Well done, Renee! And thank you for sharing, Jim!
HUGS! Hope to see you tomorrow, but not before you leave some "roadmap" love!
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday.
