I've got butterflies.....

No, I'm not talking about the butterflies that you get in your stomach when George Clooney or Megan Fox walks by, I'm talking about those beautiful creatures in your garden.

I recently found a way to bring those cool butterflies INSIDE your house....

Cool Butterflies is a gallery specifically designed to bring you photographs of just about every type of butterfly. Now, I'm not really big on putting butterflies, dolphins, etc. on my walls (or wearing them, on jewelry, etc), but I'm a BIG black and white photography fan and Cool Butterflies had a photo that fit the bill for me. It was so unusual (kind of funky really) and the black and white butterfly REALLY stands out against the muted leaves and flowers in the background. I'm actually thinking that I'm going to do a REVERSE type of frame, something colorful to really make this photo stand out.


At the Cool Butterflies site you'll find all sorts of UNUSUAL photos such as airbrushed photos and art with a message as well.

If you're a NATURE LOVER or just looking for a piece of unusual art (like me), check out Cool Butterflies and see what they've got.

Deborah Carney the gallery owner (as well as photographer of many of the pieces) has generously offered a giveaway of a photo to one of Champagne Living's readers. I'd also like to thank Deborah for providing the black and white photo as well as the second print you sent.


Giveaway
  1. Go to Cool Butterflies and choose WHICH photo you'd love to have on your wall.
  2. Come back and put it in the comments along with your e-mail address.
  3. The print that you choose is the one that you win, so take your time and REALLY look at them.

Wow, it was really tough for me because there were numerous Butterfly beauties. I just kept reviewing them and decided to narrow my choice between my two favorites which are "Monarch Butterfly" and "In Hiding", or it had "Hiding" in the name. I think at first it was my favorite when I was looking at all of them, but I kept getting drawn back to the "Monarch Butterfly". The blue background was so intense, but not too much to take away from the Butterfly. Every thing blended in perfectly. It's so beautiful, I love nature pictures, and I have always loved Butterflies. It would go perfect with my other nature pictures and would proudly display on one of my living room walls if I were to win. Thank-you, teresajones74@yahoo.com
