“Roly-Polys in my Rock Garden”


Description from Eeka Mouse: The glass drops with brown stripes reminded me of the roly-poly bugs I used to find when I turned over the stones in my mother's rock garden as a child.... then I saw the blue/grey/black striped ones and thought 'slugs'! (but in a nice way! - I like 'em!)

    Gasp! Love this! Love the colors, the textures and shapes! So earthy & natural and a great visual to create that garden feel! Straight to my Favs!

    Weren’t those cute little buggers the neatest things to peak a child’s curiosity? (Well, they did for me anyway.) I loved watching them & playing with them as a child. :-)

    Okay, so I am illiterate – what are roly-polys? Are you talking about the ‘hippodrome’ insects? Did you seriously play with them?
    Please advise!!

    Another colloquial name for the ‘roly-poly’ is ‘pillbug’; I;m not sure what it’s formal na,e is. They tend to roll up in a ball when messed with, sortof like an armadillo. When not rolled up, they scurry around on many legs. They are small, 6 – 8mm long.

    Here are some pix:

    I LOVED watching the roly polys when I
    was a kid! This is a great earthy pick! I really like the mix of stones and beads. You must not live in the Pacific Northwest! if you did, you would NOT like slugs!! :)

    Eeka Mouse says:

    No, no, no… it’s not the slugs that I like… it’s the beads that look a little slug-like! Slugs are slimy and disgusting!
