Miniature Butterfly....


It is my view that what makes a good or interesting doll house or room box is the detail, and when I came across the Etsy shop of "God's Flying Flowers" I knew this was a 'detail' that I had to have. This is one of the most amazing 1:12 scale miniatures I think I have come across, it is a 'Miniature Monarch Butterfly'. The detail is beyond belief and I think it looks right at home here on my pink clematis.
When I speak to 'non-miniatures' people, when they see my 'petite maison' for the first time, they are all fascinated by the scale and what is available in miniature....I usually reply by saying, "what ever is available in 'real life' is available in miniature"....(a true enough statement?)....but not even I thought I would be able to buy a butterfly!!

Hi Linda
Wow that's a perfect touch. I love it:) The most romantic and spring like I know is when I see to butterflies chasing each other.

I tell people that same statement, LOL

The butterfly is beautiful and does add that special touch. I purchased butterflies from Lady Bug years and years ago. Hugs, Marsha

Linda, the butterfly is a lovely touch and looks perfect on your clematis, but what I really want to comment on is your statement that a petite maison is special because of one's attention to detail. I totally agree and your maison is spectacular for that reason!! Your attention to detail shows in every single room of your petite maison. Good job!!!!

It always amazes me at how talented some people are . . . to do a butterfly in that scale requires patience!

It looks lovely on your balcony. Thanks for sharing!

It does look perfect there.

I've seen her work, lovely.

And just wanted to add, I love your blog and Paris as well, if I haven't already said that in passing. ;)

What a beautiful little butterfly! I do believe he was made using polymer clay, using a technique that is used in bead making called polymer clay canes.

I just spoke to Julia (GodsFlyingFlowers) on the phone. I gave her your web site so she could see her butterfly here on your blog. I was shocked when I went to ETSY to order one and saw she lives in my city!!!
Hopefully she will come in here and say hello.
She is so talented and very nice. I hope to meet her soon.

Hi Linda, I love your placement of the mini monarch butterfly there on the clematis! Thanks so much for your admiration of my little butterflies, and I am delighted of your other readers' appreciative comments as well! :)
