Another Second Hand Store Find
At one point in my life I was very fond of chintz and had many items, pillows, curtains, china featuring all kinds of patterns. I also liked and wore skirts made by Laura Ashley that often were reminiscent of chintz with many lovely colourful, floral designs. In fact a couple of those became pillow covers when I out wore them. I wore them despite the jokes about looking like you're matching your sofa. I remember I kept a journal of patterns and colours that I found in magazines to research and sometimes add to my hoard. All of these things are lost forever in reality, though they, like everything we experience, are able to live on in happy memory.
