jennifer at phyllidae sent over these lovely framed butterfly and insect displays. i’ve seen a million framed butterflies but the woodgrain behind these displays is a really nice, modern touch. prices range from $60-$150 and you can pick up your own display right here. it’s always nice to see a modern spin on a classic idea.

  • The framed butterfly is amazing, the colour nature has created always leaves me speechless. Cool post!
