  1. Thanks Ellie for including me in your Friday Mash up! Love that moth. I have never seen that species and I am a butterfly/moth girl!
    Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  2. I really liked Hunger Games, too!

  3. Thanks for the blog love – twice over!!

    We were just at a “bug exhibit” the other day and were fascinated by the butterfly/moth display. It’s amazing how beautiful they are, and the variety!

    Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

      Oh I’d love to see a butterfly/moth display! I bet that was magnificent.

  4. Great stuff, Ellie, particularly the dogs and people! I’ve re-discovered my love for The Muppets as of late because of the recent film. It’s almost as good as the originals.

      I know nothing about moths except how beautiful they are, so I’m not sure that makes me a moth enthusiast. But how can anyone NOT like a moth…except a sweater, of course? ;)
