Since Paul can't travel everywhere to do photography, he has opened up an Etsy shop for Purr Photography to share some of his work with more people. There are some beautiful prints in the shop as well as these lovely tiles of butterflies and other nature shots. My favorite in the shop has to be the Butterfly Collection!
The tiles are ceramic with a Purr Photography original photo fused to them. They have a super glossy finish to them too. Mine came with felt feet on the bottom, but you can get them without as well. They could even be used as coasters.
I have yet to decide what exactly I want to do with them. I didn't want to use them as coasters because I think they are just too pretty for that. Right now, I have them displayed on a shelf in my living room. My shelves were a little sparse with decorations so I think they look nice there. Maybe in the future I will have them framed or something. My dad has already given me a few ideas.

Lily, my 8 year old daughter, is the "butterfly queen" and loved them. Here are my two favorites from the collection.

I had only been expecting to receive 4 tiles in the mail, but Paul was nice enough to send 5! I believe the one with multiple butterflies on it was not a part of this collection on Purr Photography's Etsy shop. Thank you so much to both Kim at Cindy Lu's Muse and Paul at Purr Photography for the beautiful butterflies! I love them!
Please keep Purr Photography in mind next time you need a great gift idea or if you need some photos taken in the Chicago area! And also Don't forget to check out Cindy Lu's Muse - it's a wonderful blog.
