This little lady bug is 18″ long – she’s just so adorable. When I saw this, I just had to post it as it reminds me of my daughter and how she just left on her 8th grade class trip to Washington DC and took her purple hippo pillow pet. Myself, I like the lady bug – a lady bug in your house brings you good luck! In fact, right now, we have lots of lady bugs coming in from the outdoors looking for a place to keep warm for the winter. We don’t kill them – they’re harmless.
