Transfixed by Good Design

I am transfixed by clear glass, white fabric and vintage typeface right now. 

I've been drinking my hot tea from a clear cup and saucer.  I am in love with the thick white matelasse tablecloth (bedspread?) I have on the table in the kitchen and I can't stop making book sculptures.

You see, I have been inspired by this photograph that I took of a shop window in Paris. 

Every year I wrap our gifts with a specific color combination in mind.  Remember my salute to SEWING?  And the fun MAPS?  This year's colorway for the Christmas season will be WHITE - with touches of newsprint and brown craft paper.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I love the pattern paper and maps as wrapping paper that you've used. I've the comic section of the Sunday paper and brown wrapping paper with sponge-painted designs. It's so much more fun wrapping when you make it out of the unexpected. I can't wait to see what your gifts will look like this year.

The true heart of the artist is what you have Anne; everything you touch soaks it up.

Thanks, Elaine! Those were gorgeous years under the tree. I can't wait to see it either!

Mme - thank you for that!
