This is "Butterfly Garden" by Dodie
This is an Ostrich Egg that I carved Butterflies and Flowers into. It took me about 10 hours to make this one. It's three different types of Butterflies and some of the Flowers that attract Butterflies thistle, coneflower and lobelia. They are some of my favorite flowers I have lobelia and coneflowers in my garden each year. I like to use Ostrich eggs because you can get more detail into them than with the goose eggs. They do take a bit longer to carve but alot of fun to make ( also they tend to make quite a bit of cleanup afterword.
