I adore a good paisley. I don't know what it is about them, but the more I think about it, the more I think it is the random, yet cohesive nature of a paisley. You can almost get lost in the design, it can be intricate or not, but the nature of it remains the same. No paisley is created equal.
Yesterday, I doodled a paisley and think it turned out pretty well. My husband even said...how did you get it so "symetrical"...to which I replied...."talent, my dear...pure talent", and then erupted into a giggle...TeeHee. I of course could pick it apart and do things differently....but you have to start somewhere.
Here are some more paisleys for your viewing pleasure.
|The window treatments are so nice, with just a little paisley.|
|So graphic, yet the refined nature of a paisley brings in a tad of the traditional.|
|paisley walls? I love all of the different bold colors.|

Really, ya'll I could go ON and ON and ON....instead I will point you to pinterest where you could spend hours researching Paisley alone! BTW: All photos are from Pinterest.
Have a wonderful Thursday. I will be baking a Birthday Cake for my Dear Husband....and working on some other top secret stuff. Maybe I will crank out another paisley...the day is my oyster! (can you tell I have had a couple cups of coffee!) Off to work.
