Vintage
These images came to me via a Tweet from Candied Fabrics. These are illustrations from a book on Czech toys - I think you will enjoy the pages which you can view right here. If you are an illustrator you will probably appreciate the form of these solid little wood toys.

I nearly felt out of bed when I scrolled down to these! They are so fab! The colors, the simplicity, the character. I almost grabbed them right out of the screen. Great post Fiona! Loved the pop up trees too!

OK, had to come back and say they would make great wallpaper. Seriously I would have some! I think even hubby would like them as wallpaper. And to answer your question, yes to wallpaper but the scroll-ey damask-ey large patterns have been done to death haven't they? Oh! I have a post in the pipeline on this subject - you're reminding me. I'll try to get it out this week.

My life is so crazy right now - I have NO RECOLLECTION of what I tweeted that could have led you here! Was I sleep tweeting again? ;-)

Any old who, these are great! LOVE those geese!
