Burst of color : Marimekko love



photos from alwaysmod.com
I love Marimekko. I always have. I always will. These patterns are just calling my name by whispering "spring"... This week I am acquiring an old Victorian couch and chair. I want to tackle the redo of it with Marimekko. I just have to decide which one. Here is a link to some of these lovely fabrics.

I've been playing with some Marimekko- look for a fish in the next few days! So funny- and yes, it always says spring and summer to me.

Didn't realize Marimekko was still around, sewed with it at least 20 years ago! Is the top watercolor yours? Lovely colors!
