Home Inspiration 11

I am sure you have all looked (bought?) some of Caroline McGrath posters. I thought that was such a clever idea - so new, so beautiful!

All the interior design magazines I read (and believe me I read many) featured the prints. Can you have too much of a good thing? Well I am ashamed that the novely worn off a bit. It is still great, but it felt that everyone had the print..

However I found out a very cool way to have my unique word cloud. Wordle explains that it is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide.

The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends

Here are some of display on the website

All I need now is to find my favourite text (I am considering the song my parents wrote for my wedding - yes, they decided to sing in front of all the guests, and boy did I cry!). What text would you choose?


  1. Ooh I think I will have a go, probably with lyrics off some of my favourites songs!

    Thinking about it, I might try with one of my post and see which words come out bigger!


  2. I've seen these word clouds, and they are so lovely!! I love that England one, it's really neat. We have a Toronto one too, quite a few of my friends have it. :)

  3. I saw that map of the British Isles in a shop here & LOVED it! Gosh, I have no idea what I would put in my Wordle...will have to have a think!
