Nothing new

This vibrant textile design is an astonishing
300 years old.
It is by James Leman.
I must go back to the V&A to find out more about him.
And since his design is so handily marked in squares
I am seriously considering transferring it to the new white wall.

So that would answer your question JofIndia
about what I intend to hang there behind the jugs.


  1. Clapping my hands with glee re the painting onto the wall..........

  2. It's amazingly modern-looking!

    You have lilac out already? Goodness - mine are still in bud - mind you, it's chilly here at the moment.

  3. Fascinating. We can always rely on you to bring something of interest to an otherwise dull morning!

  4. What a great print. I would never guess it was that old.

    Are there others from that period that look that modern?

  5. I'm not sure, I'm going to have a look at them tomorrow. I'll let you know!

  6. What a cheerful array of colors ...

  7. Can always rely on your exquisite eye for colour and beauty in the unnoticed detail.

    Incidentally, I am thinking of compiling a new language, built on the interesting quasi-words offered by your comments verification scheme. Today's choice was "pellork". Any suggestions for a definition?
