Pictures don't do justice to these beautiful, lifelike butterflies! My daughter thought these would be more fun than corsages for her wedding party and family. I was skeptical; but now that I'm holding them in my hands, I agree! And, they'll be a nice memento of the day. My order was completed and shipped quickly, as stated. Highly recommend Kate and her Cottage Shop!

Updates

So delighted that my butterflies played a part in a gorgeous Spring wedding styled photo shoot in MO! New butterflies coming to the shop by summer
I was so honored to have my silk butterflies displayed at a signing for Roma Downey's new book: Box of Butterflies in Beverly Hills, CA.
My butterflies graced this beautiful bouquet of white larkspur, and perched on hors d'oeuvres platters that evening.

About

I believe in hope, endurance, mindfulness, and joy!

Hello there! I'm Kate. I was raised in a tiny forested community in northern Michigan and spent my days climbing trees, making forts, and riding my bike all over our small village. Now I live in a small rural town in southern Michigan surrounded by farmland. I'm raising four amazing boys with my wonderful husband.
Once upon a time, I studied to become an art teacher, long before the days of Etsy. Once Etsy came along, I knew it was my fit. I've been an artist my whole life, creating jewelry and doll clothes in grade school, and refinishing my first piece of furniture when I was 10. I'm a self-taught businesswoman and photographer.
I've been fascinated by butterflies since I was a wee girl. Unmistakably magical and enchanting, they seem to whisper their own stories on their fluttering wings.
Butterflies have long symbolized hope, strength, change, persistence, metamorphosis, joy, renewal, mindfulness, serenity, dreams, endurance, victory, resurrection and the soul.
I'm so delighted to share with you the one-of-a-kind ORIGINAL silk butterflies on Etsy, entirely handmade {with love} . . . and spread a little bit of hope and joy around the world.

When I'm not creating butterflies, I'm probably berry-picking, growing herbs, reading, walking through the woods or down country roads, canning fruits & jams, making lye soap, sewing clothing, taking photos for fun, feathering our nest, or most importantly: spending time with my family and friends.
