Planning how I will decorate the little oneâ€™s room when sheâ€™s a bit older is probably one of my favourite daydreams, so I was immediately struck by these mirrored butterflies, and began imagining an entire little girl’s room to go with them.
I found them in Really Linda Barker, of all places. (Why did I get sent this catalogue? Why? Why? Answers on a postcard, pleaseâ€¦) I was literally just about to throw the catalogue in the bin when my eye was caught by the butterflies. The picture shows them used in a bathroom, which I have to say Iâ€™m not so keen on. But used on the wall of a little girlâ€™s room theyâ€™d be just lovely.
Pretty, but not too cutesy, I think theyâ€™d look just fab â€˜flyingâ€™ up a wall or a wardrobe. Iâ€™m thinking white walls, Iâ€™m thinking gingham curtains, white painted furniture, and a flock of these sparkling away. Gorgeous.
Either butterflies or penguins come with self-adhesive pads on the back, and are made from acrylic (perhaps not as nice as real mirrorâ€¦ but then again, no need to fear them falling and shattering). A set of 5 of either butterflies or penguins costs Â£29.95 from Really Linda Barker.
