about this pattern
This pattern was the

Other uses for this pattern
The Herb Garden hangs in the hall on our second
floor, right at the top of the stairs. Even so,
we decided not to frame it, hanging it instead
from brass bars, top and bottom, which we
find looks terrific. I also think this pattern
would make a great decorator pillow, particularly
in a light-drenched spot like a sun room.
You could also use just the center of the Herb Garden
pattern, without any type at the top or bottom. The center pattern
would be appealing in a formal dining room or bedroom, or in a
room overlooking a garden. In fact, any room decorated with a
botanical theme, or with botanical prints, would welcome this
