I have recently moved and seem to have spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about wallpaper, paint and curtains. What has come as a bit of a surprise is the way I have found myself inexorably drawn to all things chartreuse. I don't really know where this has come from. I have always been a fan of sister colour lime green but yellow is most definitely not my thing. I'm not sure how easy it would be to live with but I suspect I may be about to find out.

Oh, and just to keep in the spirit of the thing I've also been indulging in a little of the original. Perhaps that could explain the recent obsession?

  1. Especially love that second print - gorgeous combo with the duck egg blue!
    Ooh, I've always wanted to know what the liqueur actually tastes of- I've read about it in a couple of novels, sounds like it's quite unique stuff.

  2. I had no idea Chartreuse was also a liqueur. Is it similar to absinthe?

  3. It's one of those lovely herby kind of liqueurs that are my favourite as a digestif. Hmmmnnn, is 11am too early for one..?
