Ladybug, Ladybug...

Just listed this darling vintage apron printed with ladybugs, strawberries and daisies in my shop today. It got me to thinking about the little ladybug that wintered in my studio this year... she (he?) lived on my jade tree all winter and then disappeared the first day I opened my window this spring.

A fun search for "ladybug" on Etsy turned up these gems...

Vera Neumann, that famously lovely designer who primarily designed gorgeous scarves in the 1960's and 1970's (and who has recently been embraced by Anthropologie's Spring collection ) used the ladybug as her trademark symbol.

I have heard that the ladybug is a symbol of good luck, and also, true love.

I think that is true!
