summer bugs....

I saw my first bumble bee, butterfly and lady bugs this week. I love summer bugs, summer bugs are happy and sunny and they sing little songs. I'm not so keen on winter bugs. Winter bugs are dark and dank and and sometimes a little slimy.

I want to decorate our bathroom with these tiny summer bug tiles from Fired Earth. In the depths of the winter (when the dank, dark bugs are out) they would cheer me up so and remind me that one day the bumble bees will be back.

They're 6.5 x 6.5 cm and hand made in the UK. They cost £20 each. I don't think I can have even one. But never mind, we're renovating our flat to sell it one day in the not too distant future, it's not a forever home. One day, when we have a forever home, I might just buy myself a bumble bee and a butterfly and a lady bug and we just won't eat for a week.
