back from the woods

My trip to Leavenworth and the lake nearby was awesome. You can see some pictures on my other blog. I will be posting more as the week goes by.

Leavenworth is a Bavarian town and the Bavarian styles and motifs are all of woodland creatures and trees and mountains. It is all right up my alley, but also incredibly trendy these days as well. Lots of places had bears, owls, antelopes, squirrels and trees on the walls, signs, and everywhere! It was pretty cute.

Squirrels, pine cones and acorns have always been something I have collected. They were popular motifs in the 4o's and I have always liked them and have quite a bit of these designs in my home. Now, suddenly they are all over the place, especially the squirrels. I am sad to find that I am getting a little over the little guys as a design motif.

Foxes seem to be getting more and more popular. I like them too (especially since many of my boyfriend's nicknames for me are different versions of fox). But, as they get more and more popular I am afraid I will become a little jaded about them too.

Here are some recent ones I have noticed and liked. (teresebast, magicjelly, tarahogen)

I have been noticing for some time that I am attracted to ship motifs. They seem to be showing up more now, too.

I don't know why, but I have always been hyper aware of these kinds of trends. Maybe my overload of these things is really just that I am looking at Etsy too much. Could that be it? ;-7
