After about 20 minutes of wandering around and around a darling little shop, Back to Nature, in Petoskey, MI, my husband finally said, "just buy it"! Now, believe me, I'm not the kind of girl who needs permission from my husband to buy something. It wasn't permission I was looking for...it was some sort of explanation as to why I would even want her. I didn't have a place to put her, she certainly doesn't look like anything else I own and she doesn't match, blend, go with or accentuate anything in my house. I just loved her.
I mean look at the face!
Look at those wings...she's a ladybug!
For right now, she is making her home in the shade of the topiary on the library table. I simply haven't had the time or energy to get creative with her yet. Am I sorry that I bought her? Not one bit. Sometimes you need to just go with your heart even if it doesn't make sense. She may not fit in with the rest of my decor...but my house isn't a showroom, it is home. It is supposed to be fun and eclectic. There are supposed to be things that just make you smile when you see them and "Lady" does that right now for me. So, while I realize she may not be the prettiest ladybug you've ever seen...she is the only one for me!
I hope you all had a great 4th of July.
We watched the fireworks from our deck and had a quiet day.
I'm still getting over the big "germ" that followed me home from Michigan.
I'm joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for
