I've had this little collage of 1920s textile designs saved in my "draft folder" for a while now, not knowing quite what to say about it. The Textile Blog is another one of my favorite Flickr photostreams to stalk. I like these for so many reasons... the colors have certainly been inspiring many of my outfits lately. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a dress printed with one of these designs? I've also been scouring the site for house decorating ideas - from coveting the William Morris rugs to wishing I could cover my wall with crazy old wallpaper designs.
Looking at these is cheering me up a bit this morning since I looked at the weather forecast. Not to be a Debbie Downer but the 12-14 inches of snow we're set to receive this evening on top of the 26 inches that are still lingering out there almost sent me into tears. I'm just feeling a bit stir crazy is all. I think that means I should go ahead and do my weekly thrifting today, probably the only day the roads will be clear enough to drive this week. Hmmm... yes, that should certainly cheer me up. Also, I'll be updating the shop later today with lots of lovely dresses!
