My paisley obsession....

I guess this is my first post. I have been following some fabulous blogs (check out my blog roll for some truly inspiring blogs) of late and now I just HAVE to join in the conversation. So here's my 2 cents worth.....

I have had a long-abiding love affair with paisleys.... captured perfectly in this rug. I'm totally loving this line of crewel-work rugs from Anthroplologie- they remind me of a hand-embroidered rug that my mom had for ages-it must have started out as majestic as theses rugs, but over the years, with three kids trampling all over it, it had begun to show signs of wear. The much-loved rug spent the last years of its life in our playroom, and is part of some wonderful memories.

Also an anthroplogie find, this rug can be found here.

Can't afford the handworked opulence these rugs offer?  Join the gang! :) Here's something within reach...

Other things paisley that have caught my eye....

Buy these gorg earrings at etsy here.

"Sangeet" food safe wooden spoon via. The patterns are burned into the wood, ensuring that these spoons are food-safe.

Handpainted cards you can order via.

Are there any motifs/patterns that find a recurring  place in your life? I'd love to hear about it.
