More harbingers of spring

In addition to cherry blossoms and dogwood blooms, butterflies make an appearance in design and fashion. Van Cleef and Arpels featured an ad in Architectural Digest with the most fantastic butterfly bracelet and necklace. After that, I kept finding butterflies everywhere! In the window display at Ann Taylor Loft, Coach handbags, even on my own weekend tote bag.
There are some people who have had a long time love affair with butterflies (Mariah Carey, you know you have) and then there are some who jump on the seasonal bandwagon.
A fun idea for a little girl's room would be to use mosquito netting over the bed like a corona and attach small butterflies from the craft store. Cheerful sheets, maybe in a stripe, would pop against the colorful butterflies. A great way to add some spring flavor without a big investment.
