I have been loving ladybugs since I was 16 years old
Today was one of those luvvy jubbly sunny days where you get to share coffee with a bestie and wear a vintage Ladybug blouse.
In Corvallis, Oregon (where I was born and raised as Julie Worthington) there was a smashing little shop on a corner named........can't remember. I would window shop there and maybe 2 times a year I would get to buy a blouse.
I was over the moon over the Ladybug clothing line.
When I found this blouse recently it took me back to age 16.
There was always a wicked little label that you would right your name on (in case when you "traded clothes" with a bestie...you would get it back).
Since I had ladybugs on the brain, I must have created a wood cut design in ART class and printed 12 copies of it in November of 1966.
My mother loved ladybugs too. One afternoon I found her (age 76) sitting in a chair at her bedroom window with the sun bathing her face as she watched the ladybugs dance in the sill.
