I don’t like to be trendy. I can resist the allure of sunburst mirrors and I didn’t feel the urge to paint everything turquoise, but sometimes a trend just happens to be something I truly love.
I love the ampersand. I even love its name. I love cursive writing and calligraphy so I guess it just follows that something as beautifully curved and swirled as an ampersand, one symbol that represents a full word in the way that Asian characters do, would appeal to me. It should be noted that I also like the OM symbol and the Yin/Yang.
The most popular ampersand style is this one, seen above and below in this wall art available at Target.
There is ampersand string art…….
Elegant wooden ampersands. (Every time I type that word I say it softly to myself….ampersand)
But I have to wait. I have to wait until the ampersand is long past outdated. I love the ampersand. But I wouldn’t be caught dead with one in my home decor. Maybe those earrings though……..
