When I think of ladybugs, they’re not only cute but very colorful to me especially against the green background be it leave or lawn. I’ve heard that ladybugs attracted to light colors and if you don’t really like ladybugs you can use dry white sage, this is sort of the natural cheap and cheery way for ladybug repellent.

More interesting facts on ladybug:

    Glass Pendant Bubble Candle Holder – Mothology

    Posted by editor On May - 7 - 2008

    hanging glass globeAnyone looking to add more romance to their garden or home? I found this nice hanging glass pendant bubble in mothology.com It’s a very nice way to hang your candle, because it can give the impression of floating candles in space (so you’ll have a romantic dinner just like that in harry potter’s feast (hogwarts great hall)– some might think it’s scary but I always think it’s romantic and dreamy) or perhaps one of that moment like Sherman in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps in where he uses fireflies to spell out his marriage proposal to Denise, but since you can’t find fireflies that easily at a convenient time perhaps this bubble will do just the right romance for your romantic patio dinner =)

    ether chandelier by eurofase

    My husband and I were having dinner at ascona pizza in Gale Ranch Plaza, San Ramon. I was too full to go back directly to the car, so I suggested to walk around the Plaza, and we discover this beautiful cascading glass chandelier at the gale ranch dental group family dental. It’s so pretty and whimsical, a perfect item to sit in the house, I thought. I am so up for it that I went to google it up and found out ether by euroface from lumens.com that it priced for $11,000++ gosh why modern design always have to come at a cost SO GOOD? hehe… To my disappointment this item can just be on that “wish-list” we all know about.

    No disappointment here, to creative people out there here’s siska’s solution, she did the creative DIY bubble chandelier project, it turned out very nice *see the picture here*
