With Flourish


I have always loved handwriting and calligraphy. Oddly, I change my handwriting all the time with whatever mood I’m in. That kind of sounds like something a crazed serial killer would do, but it’s more for aesthetics than evading the cops. I’ve come to love what I now know is “flourishing”. I’ve seen it pop up on various home accessories over the past few months. These are only a few examples- I’m cursing the fact that I didn’t bookmark the other items I’ve seen during my internet travels… but you get the idea!

  1. You are so right about the Mulberry fabric. I saw it recently and it is wonderful!

  2. I have the book you showed at the top and I love it! I tired to teach myself how to do it but just didn’t have the patience. =) LOVE the chair!!

  3. Isn’t it funny how simple lines,, loops and curves become such wondrous works of art? I love flourishes.

    And yes, that chair is exquisite!

  4. I love that you change your handwriting depending on your mood. It must be fun to review your journal.

    p.s. I’ve tagged you on my blog. You’re it.

  5. I love the chair, too! Will investigate it further. It would look beautiful in my dining room don’t you think Erin?

  6. just found your blog…..relished this post!!! I have my g’ma, grt. g’ma and grt grt g’mas autograph books from the 1800’s. All are filled with flourishes and was so fun to pull them out again for a fresh look. Thank you….I’ll be back. Ginny
