Queen Marie and I recently have become excited once again by 'scraps'.
As children, like many others, we collected scraps and swapped them with friends. I didn't actually know that they are really meant for decoupage but upon discovering some in a book shop, we found out that that's their real purpose.
The ones we found were exactly the same designs as we had as children. As we excitedly flicked through the display we picked out the ones which our favourite. I always loved the cherubs and the floral ones, whereas Queen Marie was partial to the brides and grooms and the professions (little illustrations of children dressed up as doctors, miners, nurses etc).
The floral ones do hold a special place in my heart for some reason, especially if they big roses. It's the memory of scraps that make me able to wear all my pairs of Celeste Stein floral tights as they are almost identical in style to floral depictations in my scraps, because generally I'm not into florals.
It was this comparison that has also made me desperate for a pair of Anna Kathrin Rohr's and Saskia Hammen's floral leggings and dresses in their Copy of an Imitation collection.
I would be delighted to wear every single piece in her collection. The colours are gorgeous and the tailoring cannot be faulted. The crochet knit dresses, felted wool loop top, quilted jumpsuit and of course the printed leggings, all have we weak at the knees. Of course I won't be able to get my paws on any so I feel a DIY coming on.
