I’m absolutely terrified of 99% of bugs. I know there are all kinds of benefits to having them around, but couldn’t they evolve to look a little less horrifying? Take some cues from baby koalas, insects. THESE lightning fast terrors are the absolute worst, but a spider can clear me out of a room in under 5 seconds as well. In fact, I’m surprised I was able to put this post together without running screaming from the computer.

  1. These are cute, but I think I’d still be a bit bothered by them. My cats on the other hand…

    I feel you. I’m getting the heebie jeebies just looking at it all! I’m so terribly afraid of spiders and most bugs too. I thought I could outgrow it, but nuh uh.

    I can deal with most bugs, except roaches…they freak me out and have me screaming like a little girl. I do love that ring, a fun piece to brighten up an outfit. Hope you’re having a lovely week. xoxo

    I’m such a wuss when it comes to bugs, too-the very worst!

    just the title of your post made me look with caution – even fake spiders creep me out (so pathetic, I know!). that beetle trivet is really cute though : )

  10. I’m not a bug girl either, but I think they do look a little less scary in tea-cup form :)

    I’d rather be chased by an enormous BEAR (as long as I’d be sure to escape) than wake up to find five large spiders crawling on me. The worst thing is, spiders seem to follow me. It’s like they know I’m afraid of them, so they lurk around just to spite me. Gahhh. Bugs are the worst. But attractive goods featuring bugs are pretty wonderful.
