    lol the only insect I have is some dragon fly from the 1980s, it somehow found its way into an old canvas's plastic wrapping I have.

    Your comment made me laugh and think of this. I'm a avid antiques. I recently went to one of my local Goodwill's. I found what I thought looked interesting so I bought them. The price was right.

    Goodwill like to use 2" wide clear tape to hold like things together. I bought a pair of salt and pepper shakers and a cream and sugar set, each wrapped heavily in clear tape. I saw a fly under the tape and thought a fly was on the tape. Big was the laugh on me. It was part of the design. IMG_2924.JPG IMG_2925.JPG IMG_2926.JPG

    As you can see it's on the pottery. After doing some research the pattern is called Fly in my eye. Sure made me laugh.
