a regal print

I have been lusting over damask. There is something so regal about it. Perhaps it is all of the queens that I have seen sporting damask in the past. You know, because I know so many queens. 

Did you know that {{Regina}} means queen? 
It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Regina is "queen". Appeared at the end of theVictorian era, possibly because Her Majesty was often known as Victoria Regina. May also be used as reference to the Virgin Mary, Regina Coelis, "Queen of the Heavens". (via)

Anyhow, the love for damask began awhile back when I purchased my first Gussy bag. 
Then the love for damask continued to pop up in my decor as I begged Lindsey of Paint Me A Picture to create this painting for me while she was pregnant and little did I know not having the easiest of pregnancies. Because she is the sweetest, she made me my painting now that her lil man is with us and he is just as cute as button. and I am so in love with my painting.

I'll submit my "official" entry later, but just had to comment that I laughed out loud with your musing, "because I know so many queens." Ha ha!

Oh damask, how I adore you! My dearest friend Becky can always be counted on to chose the plum colored damask if the whole world of options were available to her!

I'm a big fan of damask too Gina. I used to have a fabulous ivory damask duvet cover, which sadly eventually frayed, but I LOVE it & keep thinking I'll repurpose what's left (couldn't bear to throw it out)! xox
