The Fabulous Helen Morris....




This is just one example of what can be done with high end stencils.......



All of the designs you see are available through stencil-library.


Helen Morris is the whirlwind behind the world's largest mail-order stencil collection. England based, they offer over 3500 stencils, many based on historical ornamentation.



Helen's blog Design Inspiration gives us a peek into her world. Nothing is too difficult or too unusual to stencil!

I met Helen about a year ago and follow her blog on a weekly basis. She has a wealth of ideas stored in photos here and browsing through the catalog of stencil library will make your mind reel! So much inspiration!


I would like to thank Helen for featuring me in her blog this week. She is a great friend with a fabulous mind! Check out her blog and stencil company .

Hi Theresa...love that picture of Helen! Thanks for your comment...whenever I see something I like I wonder...how can I do that? So I love your first instinct to find a knarled piece of wood and gild it for a lamp base. Trish

Theresa Cheek said...

Yes, Trish. I am on a mission for gnarled wood! Your blog always offers inspiration to me.

Raising a toast to what Home Before Dark said! LOVE Helen -- the Stencil Library has some of my fave stencils and she always finds a way of making all patterns and colors work in a fun and oh-so-chic way. :)
