A Big Tick for These Crosses

There are many design elements that stand out when looking at an image, sometimes they are architectural, sometimes they are furniture and sometimes soft furnishings. There are elements that jump off the page at you and there are others that are more subtle but without them the image would be lacking in some way.


Do I sound like I know what I'm talking about? Well I don't, lol. All I know is that for a long time I have been drawn to images that contain a criss cross design in some way, shape or form. I have included some in this post. Some are obvious and some are a little hard to decipher due to the picture quality (or lack thereof!). Feel free to click on the image to enlarge them. How many can you find?

Is this like a 'home decorator bloggers' version of "Where's Wally'?

Hi Ange, am loving those images. Wish this dreadful dust would go away. Am trying to clean up for my Girls night In on Friday - not that any of it will last until Friday, who am i kidding. If you feel brave and would like to come (Sandy is coming also, have known her for years) email me to shabbybeach@hotmail.com
