I have always had an affinity for the Union Jack motif. Yes, it’s trendy but what can I say? I’ve always liked it and am pretty sure I always will. I actually wrote this post last week but thought it might seem really unpatriotic to post it right before Independence Day(!)
I’ve talked endlessly about the Vivienne Westwood rug for the Rug Company:
Words can’t express how much I love this but the truth is, I would have a hard time making it work anywhere in my house.
But I still want some form of Union Jack and have been looking for just the right thing.
I thought I had found it in these tea towels:
And I think I’ll still get one (aren’t they cute?) but a couple of weeks ago, I found this tapestry pillow on Etsy . . .
and I knew that it was exactly what I wanted. It arrived last week and I’m in love with it. Ah, the joy a pillow can bring.
So how was your holiday weekend? Mine was great – it was so nice to be home for a change! We moved some furniture around (no, really?), cleaned out a bunch of junk and started hanging some art. This place may actually be habitable soon(!)
