The Story of the Butterfly Children.....

....."the butterfly maidens watch 
over the chrysalids as they play
 and tell them about the plants
 and pretty, brightly-coloured flowers. 
How wonderful they smell!"....

Sybille von Olfers - The Story of the Butterfly Children

This lovely story was my inspiration for the swap M. Bloom of we bloom here recently hosted. So here is what was inside those little white parcels.....


Hopefully they have all be received and I don't spoil the surprise for anyone!

This has been such a fun swap......We still have two little treasures yet to be posted in our letterbox. When all our new friends have arrived we will introduce you!

  10. So seriously, I was looking through the peg people gallery and saw these. I, of course, drooled and wished that I could have one. Then I came here to comment on how cute they were and noticed that momma rae, one of my swap partners, had commented.

    And then I grew a brain and realized that one of these sweet sets is winging its way to me!! I shall be stalking the mailbox now. ;)


Thanks for your sharing your thoughts. I love hearing from you and will respond to any questions in the comments sections. Natalie
