i have been finding pinterest and flickr increasingly useful in organising my virtual mood boards of inspiration for figs and roses products.

this is my favourite 'pin' of the week. yarn in colours which remind me of figs. from the fabulous quince and co. image via this stunning blog.

one of the reasons i chose to use figs in the company name is because i love everything about figs. their beautiful colour, their shape and their taste - especially with a good chunk of goat's cheese. this was a perfect saturday lunch.
