Lady Love Bugs


love bugs

Did you catch ladybugs when you were a kid? How about love bugs? 


Ladybugs are the ones with red wings and black spots -- as in Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home..... and love bugs are the ones that are *stuck together* if you know what I mean.

I remember catching love bugs but I was one of the nice kids who didn't pull them apart... yeah sure, you say -- but it's true! I had no idea why they were stuck together, just that they were! I wonder if I ever asked my mom why they were like that -- and even better, I wonder what she answered if I did!

Anyway, with Valentine's Day right around the corner, and those love bugs madly dashing about with their girlfriends or handsome beaus, I have made a little crochet buggie to remember the day.

She's actually a Ladybug, but because of her special heart spots, she's also a Love Bug!



Here she is waiting for her special love beau to come along...
She thinks the birdhouses on the chair will attract him : )



She has rather buggy (get it?) eyes, 
to keep the little ones safe when they play



She even has her own cute bag to sleep in!
Her own ladybug cousins and some butterfly friends are on the bag,
and it says "Girl Bugs" all over it!
Miss Lady Love Bug likes it very much!

 PS -- she resides in my Etsy shop and does hope that she will soon find a little friend to fly home to!


sharing Miss Lady Love Bug over at Miss Jenny's for Alphabe-Thursday where we are studying the letter L

Here in Georgia, love bugs are totally different from lady bugs, and occasionally their bites can make you sick. I love lady bugs, though--especially yours!!!

I like these! How adorable. I grew up with those pretty little lady bugs that were really red with black dots and we'd fight to save their lives. Now that I'm grown up, they seem to be gone, and to replace them are the faded red, more like orange with black dots, they go by several other names, and they do bite!

I just love ladybugs -- I have them everywhere -- especially in the bathroom. Had pink ones on my wedding cake! Love your ladybug!
