Inlaid monarch butterfly on maple end table
Breeze Verdant inlayed this beautiful monarch butterfly into a maple end table that Ken and Kyle built. It’s on display at Stonehurst until August 26th.

With our Save the Monarchs tour coming up next week, we decided to dress this Vermont furniture showroom up for the occasion.  Ken and Kyle built a beautiful maple end table and brought it over to Breeze Verdant who inlaid that amazing monarch image above.  There are actually over 100 tiny pieces of wood and metal in it!

Monarch Artistry in our Vermont Furniture Showroom
The Save the Monarchs banner, pamphlets & stickers were created by our ace artist, photographer & all around creative genius, Nina.  That’s a monarch nursery in the upside-down mesh clothes hamper.  Several monarchs in all different stages of metamorphosis are inside.  Hopefully some will be able to join us for the tour.

We’re Spreading Our Wings!
