Pattern

Okay, I’ll just admit it: I love Pinterest. I was an early convert, and I love the whole concept. Since I was very young I’ve loved doing what my mum affectionately (?) called ‘cutting and sticking’. This involved cutting out beautiful things from magazines, newspapers, labels and packaging, arranging them and then using a Pritt stick to collect it all together in a pretty notebook, or just on blank card to stick on the wall.

For anyone unfamiliar with the concept, Pinterest is like a great big scrapbook that you create by ‘pinning’ linked images onto online pin boards. It’s a wholly frivolous and delightful pastime, perfect for whiling away a few hours with a hot cup of tea.

As this blog has always been for collecting together things I love, I’ve decided Pinterest may have to creep in every so often – I’d like to inject more colour and creativity in amongst the musing and the baking. And today, it’s patterns that have been on my mind, swirling around in all of their glory. Here are some of my favourites.

The beautiful art deco patterning on this edition of the classic is the work of Coralie Bickford-Smith (Her website is captivating – what a talented lady!)
