The article, "Flight Patterns" by Elaine Markoutsas, touts the use of color and inspiration from butterflies in home décor and fashion this season.
A quick search on Google images using any home related word - chair, plate, pillow, etc. - reinforces the fact that the influence of butterflies is everywhere.

The author quotes artist Chris Reilly - who's latest exhibit featured butterfly inspired art - as saying,
"We live in a cynical age, with a lot of fear. Butterflies are an antidote to fear and cynicism, the opposite of anger. When I see butterflies, I feel joy."
That made my heart happy. Tangling spreads joy. Tangling Ann multiplies the joy!
Try it in a tile today. Find a butterfly graphic that you like and try your hand at coming up with your own variation on a pattern...the world is full of possibilities - and joy!
