  1. Ah, such a brilliant gallery! I think you have got it all! Love the lady in the striped dress-up by the artwork, bamboo, checquered floors and door… The butterfly! And extra happy I am about the Fritillary – you are the first and only one to have sent this beauty! I had expected it to arrive much earlier this week. Thank you!
