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

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.

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...
