I discovered that I can go back through all my old postings and see which ones got the most views. I found this post from October 17, 2009 got a whopping 423 views! What's especially odd is that it got only four comments. Probably someone referred to the posting elsewhere and directed crafters to it.
I got this picture off the Birds and Blooms website. These darling ladybugs are just old painted bowling balls. The directions are shown on their webpage online.
It seems like these lawn decorations would last for many years, unlike the plastic stuff you find almost everywhere. (Of
course, if you've been tortured by the nasty, biting Asian Beetles that
look like ladybugs, you probably wouldn't regard them very fondly.)
