The Flight of a Butterfly…

Butt10

I think butterflies are amazing!  Now I have discovered something that just puts these winged wonder’s in a whole new category…of mad respect!

Did you know that the average life cycle of a butterfly can be 1 to 30 days on average? Yep…mind blowing!

Maybe you already knew that…but not me!  There are some species…very few, in fact, that can possibly last up to 9 months.  But most of them only last a day!  It makes these spectacular creatures, even more sensational.

Thanks to some butterfly farms around the world they have been able to bring back some species that were on the verge of instinction.  These same farms also sell these beautiful wonders…when they die.

In fact, there is an artist Alina Eydel, that buys them and arranges them to make beautiful pieces of art…they remind of a views through a kaleidoscope.Butt3

Is that a DOME?

geohome6

Yes…these crazy looking home structures were slated to be the homes of “Tomorrowland”.

Many feel they still will be…while others say…they’re already here!

geodome1

These kind of weird looking homes don’t exactly fit into those perfect little neighborhoods you see when walking around a cute downtown area or a clean-cut suburban gated community. But Buckminster Fuller saw the potential is those triangles: With the goal of creating a structure analogous to nature’s own designs, Fuller began to experiment with geometry in the late 1940s. In 1951, he patented the geodesic dome, and while you may not see a lot of on a normal city street, geodesic domes are known to be the most efficient building system available. So, why should you want a dome home anyway?

 

 

This post is dedicated to Tom and Mary Hoyer…who I know personally are absolutely crazy about DOMES and were the first to introduce me to these very unique structures!

Love Me a Cluster of Lights…

This is such a fabulous way to do a light presentation…these particular types of lighting creations are not just for pendents…as the ones seen below.

grouping1

All of these wonderful collections are created with an abundance of different sizes, perhaps similar styles of chandelier lighting elements…creating a visual masterpiece.

grouping3

Here the designer used woven column baskets…along with woven globe chandeliers. So cool!

These paper lanterns can be picked up very inexpensively…but when grouped together…what a great impact they make!

Very creative and eye-catching…nice work!

A great way to use your decor as a marketing point of interest.  Great for word of mouth promotion.  It doesn’t always have to be done with huge money with a PR company, nor an insurgence of social media avenues!  BRAVO!
