ladybugs, ladybugs

my little ladybug is obsessed...with ladybugs,
and as they all start to arrive she is more intent on playing with them
(not a good idea, they are quite fragile!),
caring for them, naming them...and praying for them.

i love ladybugs, in fact, my grandmother has always called me ladybug,
(grandpa called me queenie--go figure!)
but i'm not so sure my house is set up
to house the amounts of ladybugs muffy would like.

i would much rather have a collection of skirts, dresses and accessories
of ladybugs like this from lilly...rather than picking up the little beetles
that are clinging to my curtains and creeping up the walls

oh well, they're good luck, so i'll keep them around for awhile,
they make me --and muffy -- smile!


  1. AWWW! Ladybugs are too cute! And yes they are indeed lucky!

    Fun fact: Did you know ladybugs come in all different colors? Reds, yellows, orange, gray, black, brown and even pink! Happy weekend to you! :)

  2. So adorable! There are a few ladybugs living in Fiancé's bathroom, and they have to stay there because they are our "friends". (The ladybugs, the live ones not the Lilly-kind, might have to move out when I move in!) ;)

  3. These are just darling! We have become very familiar with ladybugs of late, a few friends collect them.

    Sending you a smile,

  4. So excited I just found your blog! Super cute!
