Etsy Favorites - Butterfly in the Sky . . .

". . . I can go twice as high.  Take a look, it's in a book, a reading rainbow."

How great was that show?  Not to mention that song.  You know, it wasn't until "Reading Rainbow" host LeVar Burton guest starred on "Community" that I realized he was also that guy with the glasses (who I now know to be Geordi La Forge) on "Star Trek: Next Generation."  

Now that that recollection is out of the way, we can move on to our winged ones.  Let's face it, the butterfly tattoo is a cliche for a reason.  People love butterflies.  And why not?  They flit through the sky on gossamer wings, inspiring us with their beauty and freedom.  This week's Etsy pieces capture this spirit with equal parts charm and edge, challenging us to spread our wings and take flight.  (Metaphorically, that is.  I'm in no way advocating taking to the skies without the aid of an airplane.)
