I'm not sure where the idea for love bugs came into being, but I'm guessing it's Valentine's Day cards. Probably the cute little ones we used to give out in elementary school. I'm so glad I was little during that era, as I know I wouldn't have been as thrilled about a Barbie or Scooby Do Valentine. I did like Scooby Do okay, but Barbie, no way!
Back to love bugs though, this handsome little fella is completely hand sculpted with a lot of love and time. He is available on eBay
