Jump forward many, many years. Everytime I see a mounted butterfly collection or for that matter, any type of insect collection I think with fond memories of my childhood. Not only that, but I love them. I've decided to start my own. It's slow going with the collection but with time I plan to have a large one.
Here's my wall at night with the starting of the collection in my living room. Along with the collection, I've left my vintage botanical pictures up. Since I'm tired of those, they'll come down as I get more butterflies, moths and maybe some insects.
Lastnight. It looked so pretty with the lamps on.
I know the collection is small, but with time it'll get bigger.
Here's my inspiration wall taken from www.theSelby.com:
So, I'll update you in the next 6 months on my butterfly/insect wall. Hopefully, I'll have lots more to show you.
****With all this being said. I know that there are many of you out there who consider collections such as these to be animal cruelty. I personally don't like to kill these little creatures but, for whatever reason, don't have a problem buying these insects mounted. Go figure........
