Beautiful I love them
Very cute and well handmade. They will make a lovely birthday gift for my wife.
These mariposas are wonderful! Great detail and color. I split the set with my mom, who collects butterflies. She loves it. I thought about keeping it with my Dia de los Muertos decorations but it flew onto my fridge and found a home there. It's believed that butterflies represent the souls of ancestors returning to visit their loved ones. I know I will think of all the ones I miss every time I see my wonderful magnet. Wonderful purchase, amazingly awesome owners!
I am so glad I ordered these magnets; they are beautiful in person.I know that I will be ordering more.
The butterflies have been welcomed by my other magnets on my refrigerator. A great home for them.
