i absolutely love flowers and i have for as long as i can remember. they fascinate me endlessly and in so many ways. i loved going on field trips to gaze upon nature and studying the flowers in the gardens of the many places i’ve lived over my life. i remember particularly liking foxgloves and hydrangeas. asking my nan and grandad a million questions about their garden and gazing especially lovingly at their magnolia tree.
because of this, i have a overwhelming love for floral patterns and motifs, too. the first floral pattern i can really remember loving was the curtains in the living room in the house we lived in the longest when i was younger. they were black with a slightly oriental yet distinctly english floral pattern. i wish i could find that fabric again in my lifetime because i’d buy it in a heartbeat for the sake of nostalgia. i have a feeling it was from laura ashley, but i’ll probably never know.
anyway, for some reason, when walking through the kitchen recently i looked at one of our saucepans with a floral print on, and decided i’d take some photos of a few of the things i own that have floral patterns on. just because i wanted to, really.
you can also check out some floral patterns i’ve made myself too such as roses and apples, vintage hydrangea and some vintage florals. i sell notebooks in my shop with one of the vintage hydrangea patterns on, and there’ll be some of the ‘roses and apples’ one soon too. i also have products with my vintage floral patterns in my society6 shop.
do you have any favourite floral patterns or prints? or are you not a fan?
