Dusty Designs, New books, New inspirations
Far back in my fabric collections, I had created a design called A Nice Day to do Laundry. It sat in my collections on Spoonflower lost forever, so I thought.
Until a customer from Canada told me that she was redoing her laundry room, and did my design also come in wallpaper and decals.
So, I dusted off the design, worked it into wallpaper and decals and even added a print for her.
I think that out of all the things that I have designed over the years, designing fabric never grows old for me. Some of my designs get old and tucked back in the archives of 1,000 fabric designs, but my love of designing them never does.
I am on a quest to design some new French designs, so I bought this book on Paris in Anthropologie the other day. Pure impulse, but it is now added to some wonderful new books that truly inspire me.
I noticed that Elyse from Tinkered Treasures has this book too, she is on her way to a wonderful adventure in London and then Paris with her new book release. Now that is one book that I will add to my inspiration stack.
A cup of tea, a bit of music and a stack of books. My bliss.
