On the Radar -- The Beetles

Made by The Dusty Raven, on Etsy, here.
The Blackbird girls are known for their love of beetles -- both the bugs and the band.  But lately, one of us has been dreaming of beetles, thinking of beetle-inspired crafts, buying beetle items -- like a little cast iron beetle.  She's been talking about them lately, and she got me interested.  So I did a little searching to find some new, and old, examples of beautiful beetle design.

So today's round-up is for the other Blackbird girl, as an early "Happy Birthday" for her, from me.  Because, as you may or may not know by now, what inspires her, inspires me -- and vice versa.  I'm very lucky to have such a great business partner, comrade in craft and design, and best friend.

And for her to dream of, this by Elsa Schiaparelli in 1938, from here.
