Thanks Fashion Gone Rogue for taking me with you. Oh and dear Oscar – I love you for corn flower blue I am one year ahead it seems. I just painted the family room this color with a little caveat. The fireplace has some cool trims trailing up the wall so we painted that area a cousins’ shade away from cornflower with the trim in crisp white. But don’t worry Oscar, our room couldn’t possible upstage your Spring Summer 15 get ups. I am enchanted with what you have done!

I love postcards, especially old ones. Old ones that have handwritten notes that were sent 70 years ago. The handwriting in particular draws me in. I can almost smell the Old Spice and old lady perfume exchange happening. Yummy.

I found these to stir my imagination. Enjoy.

The weeks have gotten away from me. From painting rooms in our home to weekends in St. Joseph, we have been in a flurry of festivities. And yet, these little beauties managed to grab my attention so I thought it perfectly perfect to share them!

So that is all I got this week.  I am getting pummelled with inspiration and I can’t wait for the process to begin. It starts of with images and influences and irritations. They settle and find their appropriate places in my mind and then they manifest into a garment or a company or just an idea. These images account for exactly one half of a freckle of an image in the process. I’ve been collecting handwriting from postcards from the late 1930’s and they equal the other half of a freckle.

Well then, I suppose that is that!

Cheers,

Amy
