Welcome to Arnold and Bird

Hello. How exciting, my first official blog post out to the world wide web. Arnold and Bird was born out a desire to stay creative and document my inspirations. I LOVE blogs and am continually inspired by them so I am thoroughly excited to now be blogging myself.

Design will be at the centre of my blog. This will draw from different curiosities I find and also create myself in the form of drawings and mood boards. Curiosities happens to be one of my favourite words and I love how it describes an interesting and unusual object whilst the word evokes intrigue as to what that object will be. All of this will be underpinned by a weekly soundtrack of some of my favourite songs.

My blog name comes from my grandparents so I will also be including a bit of family history along the way as well.

To get started, my first curated mood board.

Lace and glitter – so pretty and feminine and creates such beautiful detailing. These are a few of my selections that I love at the moment.


Love Joanne, x

Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand.
