Butterflies are passé but they are still my favorite insect.

As anyone who has ever seen my office can tell you, I like butterflies. I like everything about them. They make me happy when I see them fluttering around outside and I like the butterfly magnets which litter my filing cabinet. Pretty soon the monarchs will be in Seattle and the Empresses, Admirals and swallowtails will be up on the hiking trails.  Here is a photo of one resting on my fleece jacket.


I also like owls and woodland creatures and it is funny to me how they are now “in” while insects are “out.” Since I am too old to be concerned about being trendy, it makes me happy that the things I like are “in” just because it makes it easy to find things I like. It used to be hard to find things with owls and mushrooms.  But no longer!  You see, I have a set 70’s Sears mushroom canisters. I bought them at a garage sale back when Dennis and I were first married. I was not trying to be a hipster, save the environment  or even a lover of mid-century crap. I just needed some cheap canisters and I like mushrooms. I got the set of four for $2.00. Woot! (I have long since broken then smallest one however.)Then Maria found the soup turine and purchased it as a birthday present. I don’t ever make that much soup, so I use it to hold towels and sponges next to the sink. Anyway now it is easy to find cute towels and pot holders to match the mushrooms in my kitchen. 

Of course, I am having trouble finding stuff to match my office butterflies.  Any “fads” you miss either in clothing or interior design?
