A Loveliness of Ladybirds

We love ladybirds – the original little red dot of course and we are here to show you a loveliness of ladybirds gifts. So off we go on our ladybug hunt!

Ladybird, Ladybird

Ladybird Ladybird or perhaps Ladybug Ladybug the poem is entrenched in childhood memories as a frightening rhyme. For Kitty Mummy, it was Ladybird Ladybird and I envisaged the panic of my favorite little ladybug beetles in a housefire.

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home,
Your house is on fire,
Your children shall burn!

How we were traumatised as kids, eh?
Then today I heard the phrase “A Loveliness of Ladybirds” and thought it was so apt! I had never heard this collective noun before, although I was familiar with a clowder of cats and a kindle of kittens. There is some dispute about whether this is a modern invention, but who cares? Even a plague of ladybirds can be a pretty sight, so I for one truly hope “a loveliness of ladybirds” takes off if new and resurfaces if not! Not that I am prejudiced towards ladybugs in any way…

There is actually some doubt as to the authenticity of the collective noun, a loveliness of ladybirds, but I like it… So, like fairies, I believe in a loveliness of ladybirds!

To be honest if a loveliness of ladybirds is not an historic collective noun, I think we should campaign to make it one, don’t you?

What cat doesn’t love a dragonfly? These is just something about the way they fly that makes dragonflies completely irresistible. Ever tried to catch a dragonfly on film? You will see it dart away before you can zoom in to catch its beauty. I think it is because they are really fairy creatures! They don’t appreciate being captured on film as they alternately dart and hover, but you can catch them in the beauty of gemstones, crystal or gold and wear them as a necklace!

Spiders for Halloween Bling!

The Faerie - Spider Web Greeting Cards
The Faerie – Spider Web Greeting Cards by persimew

All cats agree a Spider is a thing of beauty! It is such fun to chase a spider round the house in the dark, crashing into furniture and waking mummy up with howls of frustration.

Don’t spiders make lovely webs? The one in mummy’s picture was on our garden hedge and the frost caught it. She played around with the colours to make it more fairylike. The spiders in our house aren’t particularly fairy like. They are pretty spiders with long legs, but they are also dyslexic spiders. Maybe they got inspired by Charlotte’s Web or something, but our indoor webs are just mixed up like net curtains that have disintegrated in the wash.

Anyway, I mew too much about dyslexic spiders when I really wanted you to see some spider jewelry. Just the thing with Halloween coming up don’t you think?

        

This one takes the first prize for me. If mummy wore these it WOULD be fun! Come one house spiders, this is how webs SHOULD look….
