What is it with me and my fascination for making bugs?
...and dragonflies and butterflies? :)

Not too long ago, I made this bug and a few others,
but got the itch to make a couple more

chair leg art bug
I used a chair leg for the body on this one...

...and he was ready to go.
I was actually tempted to keep this one for myself, 
but I put him in the shop and he's already flown away.

That same day, I made this bug too.

The top of the body is part of a wooden lamp base cut in half and I attached
part of a wooden candlestick base to the bottom, 
he was pretty big, and fat.

Recycled Table Leg and Spindle Pink Parisian Fleur De Lis Dragonflies and Butterfly Art

fleur de lis butterfly
I'm not a real frou frou girl myself, but I love how this feminine design turned out.
I'm calling them my "Pink Parisian" design :)

Do you remember this Pink Dragonfly I made a long time ago?
This one has been pinned close to 800 times!? 
So, I thought I would make another...or a few.

For the butterfly body, I used a wooden candlestick base cut in half
with another piece attached for the head...
