Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Over the last several weeks when I have been out and about comp shopping I have also collected a few photographs for Jubilee products and displays.  Unfortunately I don't have many photographs, but it's better than nothing.  Most companies have all their bunting and other decorations up now.  A few houses where I live have started to place their bunting on their houses too over the last couple of days.  Have you got your bunting up yet?  Do you have any plans for the long Jubilee weekend?

Fit to Print

I am lovin' this fashion photo shoot from Harper's Bazaar Magazine, March 2012 issue.  Here is a sneak peek into the fashion shoot 'Fit to Print.'  There are so many different prints this season, I love them all (well almost).  Hope you like them too.

Geometric Interiors

In March issue of Period Homes Interiors is a useful and inspiring article of of how best to use bold geometric patterns in your home.

 'Tracey Williams examines how best to use bold geometric patterns in a period home, from large scale wallpapers to more subtle designs on cushions and soft furnishings.'

*quoted in Period Homes & Interiors Magazine

I love the pattern wallpapers in the images with the subtle colour palettes.  Depending what room you are designing for depends on the type of design to choose for that particular living space.  I like detailed, bold and busy feature walls myself so I would go for something like the wallpaper designs in images 3 or 6, I quite like the colours too.  Would you like geometric or would you go for something completely different?

Leicester Print Workshop

It's Follow Friday.

I have recently started volunteering at Leicester Print workshop. The workshop involves many different print making techniques including silk screen, intaglio, lithography, mono-printing, collagraph and relief printing.  The workshop has great facilities and workspace for all these print making techniques.



There are courses in the workshop all year round.  If you enjoy the courses and would like to progress in your passion for print making you can become a member with an affordable price.  You can even have the chance to have your prints exhibited.  You can view all the artists who are currently a member of the workshop and their work.

You can find Leicester Print Workshop on Facebook, Flickr and follow on Twitter @LeicesterPrint. 

I have been doing several jobs around the print workshop since I have been volunteering including organizing, cleaning screens and general chores.  I really enjoy going as it's a change of scenery and something different.  I cannot wait to have a try with some of the print making techniques, many which I never tried before.

It's a girl...

I love a bargain and I am always looking in TKMaxx when I have the chance especially in their book department.  They sometimes have some lovely, inspirational interior or art books.  Most are cooking books, but I look anyway.

I recently brought this one, but it's actually a girls and boys name book.  But I thought the images inside are rather inspiring and may come in use.  It is a very clever way of presenting girls and boys names, what do you think?

I believe most of this images are based in America but there are some from other parts of the World.
