paper

I've mentioned already that I've been uncovering some marvellous old paper in the house.  The variety and boldness of the patterns are amazing.  I am definitely feeling inspired by some of my finds, so keep your eyes peeled for an 'old wallpaper collection' coming soon!

I love the brightness of these grapes, protected by being hidden away in a cupboard, even after so many decades.   But this wholesome scene below is my favourite.  Again being in the back of a cupboard has protected the colours for us to enjoy.  It is fantastically twee, but wonderfully up to date - of course it's all about the pattern, but just look at that skirt!
