Oops, I Did It Again…

I like words.  And consequently, I like letters.  So it should come as no surprise that I like incorporating letters into the design of my personal space.

But not just any old letters.  Whilst I don’t want to come across as discriminatory against most of the joyous offerings of the alphabet, I do have a preference for the letter A.

A little predictable?  Absolutely.  However, I think it’s pretty cool to ‘own’ your initial, perhaps on another level, I’m also reinforcing my identity and marking my territory by dotting the letter A around my space.  A bit like a cat, but in a much more socially acceptable manner.

And anyway, would it be that wrong to rub my Tolix chair with my neck, now and again?

Yea ok, it would.  Moving on.

Cat Marking Territory

I don’t like cats but we seem to exhibit similar traits…

My new obsession started with an impulse buy from Abigail Ahern and has steadily gained momentum ever since.  It’s clearly Abigail’s fault and I’m more than happy to point the finger of blame in her direction.

Let’s look at my little collection in all its Photoshopped glory, eh?

The Letter A

I’ve conducted some very casual research and have deduced that Not On The High Street offers a huge and wide-ranging stock of letters, in all sorts of styles.  I’ve compiled my top 5.  Just in case there’s anyone out there with a similar interest/obsession.

I’m secretly hoping and praying that I’m not the only person on the planet that has discovered the greatness of collecting letters… feel free to drop me a line to put my mind at ease.  PLEASE.

  1. […] the vintage inspired cushion far right, is a definite mood enhancer (BHS).  And for someone who is obsessed with the letter A and cushions, I couldn’t resist that cosmic cushion in the centre (M&S). […]
