Is it Spring/Printemps that's brings out the ladybugs/coccinelles in Paris?
Yesterday I saw 3! At the bd Raspail bio marche.
On wine bottles no less.
Guarding chocolates at patisserie Pause Detente 98 ave. Ladru-Rolin.
Ladybugs were out en masse on Saturday. Especially at il etait un fois toy shop - this hugable doudou.
A wind-up coccinelle...
On a backpack...
An adorable Nathalie Lete designed bebe looks like a ladybug-to-be.
Mary janes a ladybug would love to wear at il etait un fois..
As well as a polka-dot picnic basket..
Over at La Vaissellerie must-have mugs for any ladybug of note.
Plus little teabag dishes - these ladybugs have names!
I didn't know there was a whole series of Ladybug girl books! A whole flock of them by Jacky David and David Soman.
Ladybugs bring happiness/le bonheur, so you shouldn't leave home without at least one. I left these at chez moi.
But I'm wearing Sonia Rykiel stick pins everyday on my raincoat.
You never know...
