More Than Monday

This past weekend I discovered a poster I had bought that is still waiting to be framed. Even though it has been tucked away for safe keeping it is no less remarkable then it was when I first fell in love with it. It's an amazing compilation of photos featuring dozens of species of butterfly wings.

You Can Get Your Own Wings Here!

The entire 26 letter alphabet and 9 numbers can clearly be seen in the a natural patterning of these butterfly wings. I took the poster out and tacked it up in my sewing room where i can easily see it... the magnificent colors and shapes all found in natures miraculous splendor will be a wonderful design tool and a true source of inspiration...

Inspiration comes in different ways on different days for all of us...

...What inspires you ?
