  1. I’ve seen some of those patterns before, but had no idea what they were or where they came from. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I think an On My Mind Monday feature would be awesome – love that idea! And I really like those pins…I have a thing for old pins (I have a bunch of them framed).

    1. My son collects pins too. We also buy him different pins from every city and place that we have been to. He used to wear them on a vest or jacket but he lost some that way. Maybe I should frame them for him too.

    1. I love that pillow too. Would be a great design for the silhouette cameo ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Those wood slices make me think of my faux taxidermy and wood slices! They wood look pretty cool together.

  4. Oh all are so cute. I think we have you Americanized now Julia!

    After all that is what it is to be American…. it is a blend of cultures.

    All in favor of FREEDOM.

  5. ๐Ÿ™‚ ha!ha! I get it! the rug and pillow are both pretty; loving this style! btw, my sister-in-law is German, I will ask her about “Bibi” glad you had a great weekend and had a great time with your dad! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hahah, you’re not cuckoo ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always though these motifs were rather Bohemian. Wow, America surprised me again. These wood slice hex signs would make perfect coasters and match my new kitchen :))

  7. Nah, I have hex above my front door. ๐Ÿ™‚ I grew up in upperstate NY and that’s kind of common.

  8. I’m loving them, Julia! Isn’t it funny how our taste changes? Blue used to be the last color on my decorating list and now it is in the #1 spot. I love the wood slices…they would be so pretty framed together or framed separately. Very striking! Looking forward to seeing how you incorporate it into your gorgeous home! Jesse @ Scout & Nimble

    1. Yes, it is funny how our taste changes but also awesome. It’s kind of frustrating going to peoples homes that are stuck in time. This is what keeps us young ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Loved Bibi growing up and the best part is they still make the tapes (well CD’s now). For all non German;s its essentially like books on tape and I think every German girl loved it growing up.

    1. Awesome that you liked her too. I thought I wouldn’t find any like minded witch girls ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Ooooh! Hex hex! Kartoffelbrei!
    I never has these tapes, but nearly all of my friends had, so I grew up with them nevertheless ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the patterns!
    Especially the pillow looks great…

    The pattern remember me of the Swedish “Dala Kurbits”, the same way the Dala Horses get painted as well. But you can find them as well a lot on old cupboards and even on clogs ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love, Midsommarflicka

    1. Genau…Hex hex…Love it! Finally someone who understands ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I have to check out the swedish patterns.

  11. I agree with the commenter about how our tastes change. When I was younger, I would have hated folk-related design. And now I love it!

    I love these designs! I have seen them before, but I didn’t know where they were from.
