Le Challenge #23 - SINGLE BUTTERFLY

A single butterfly in the garden made me stop in my tracks. Time seemed to freeze as I watched my daughter Lucy skipping after that butterfly. For a moment I wasn't there anymore, I became Lucy or rather myself as a child following a butterfly in my Grandma's beautiful garden. 


Childhood memories rushed in front of my eyes and for a fraction of a second I couldn't move. You might think I'm exaggerating but I swear it was like when you smell something you haven't smelt for years and it makes memories suddenly come into your mind. Hasn't that ever happened to you?


To capture the moment when a single butterfly stopped time for me in the garden that day I made this special Hairband. I used a single butterfly from Rashida Coleman-Hale's magical Night Sky from the Moonlit collection for Cotton + Steel and decorated it with tiny beads.

  5. What a very cute idea. I thought, perhaps, you had stamped the butterfly on fabric. But to use something already printed on fabric is so clever. It looks sweet on the headband.

  7. Quant'è vero, a volte i ricordi ritornano in mente sentendo gli odori che sentivamo da piccoli ed è bello che diano ancora più valore alle cose che facciamo. Sarà stata molto felice la tua bimba di indossarla. è davvero molto sfiziosa!
    Un abbraccio e a presto!
