Seriously, whoever picks the scrapbook paper prints out for Michael's stores does know their business. Here's a really pretty purple & cream pattern:

While looking for a new comforter, my Mom & I also browsed the shower curtain, most of which were blessedly forgettable. The exception:

In addition to the usual papers & upholstery, I also spotted some wonderful antique cups. Here's a lovely Asian pattern:

This last one isn't a pattern I found but rather one I made. I got this poster for Christmas and since it's an odd size, there were no ready-made mattes in the stores. So a couple of packages of origami paper later....
