A couple of weeks ago, I looked out my balcony window and saw a ladybug. I thought "Oh wow! Today is going to be a lucky day!" I had a dentist appointment that I was a bit nervous about, and the ladybug made me feel like I had nothing to worry about.
I later found out that there is a strange over population of ladybugs right now. Oh well, that ladybug did bring me luck that day, as I did not freak out at the dentist :)
Then I remembered that old ladybug bracelet that I had. (pictured above) I had bought it when I first started selling art on ebay 8 years ago. I always thought it brought me a lot of luck. I wore it always. In the shower, sleeping, all the time. One day I noticed it was not on my wrist anymore. I was sad to think I had lost it somewhere. To my surprise, it showed up in the sleeve of my winter coat! One of the links had broke. I didn't bother to get it fixed and went years without wearing it. Last week (after seeing the ladybug on the balcony), I decided to get that link soldered so I could begin to wear it again. Twenty-three dollars later (a bit steep for one link to be soldered....but well worth the luck it will bring) I got it fixed and I'm back to wearing it. I must say, I'm already feeling lucky :)
Miss ladybug fairy is up for grabs on ebay. The auction ends tomorrow!
