He Looked Like a Philip

Banjo Beetle, $85

We gave one of these little guys to my husband Micky’s awesome sister Shannon (who makes these amazing cookies, btw) for her birthday this year. With a name that pretty much says it all, Bug Under Glass is a shop on Etsy that specializes in handcrafted, museum-quality displays featuring some very cool creepy crawlers. And flyers. And shredders! It was tough deciding, but ultimately we picked the weevil riding the red tricycle and we called him Philip. The only Green Certified insect display business in the whole COUNTRY, they’ve got some lovely beetles and butterflies too.

Tricycle Beetle, $80
Yellow Migrant Framed Butterfly, $30

  1. Ah! I love Philip! And I already named his banjo friend Jon Boy. It just seems right. Thanks for the shout out!

  2. I met this artist while I was in school at University of Wisconsin Madison
    She makes these awesome wall paper patterns out of beetles and exotic insects. I thought you might like to check it out- T.
