Today, I was inspired by a 'wreath'. Inspired by its form, its structure and its components, I started designing patterns and fabrics with 'wreath' as a theme. (Work in progress). A wreath, I always though was only used for Christmas decorations. The dictionary defines the wreath as 'a circular band of flowers, foliage, or any ornamental work, for adorning the head or for any decorative purpose; a garland or chaplet.'

Photo Credits: Malhar SawantAfter this part of information collection for the day, I thought of this photograph, where a delicate stalk of a creeper is used to tie up the placemat for a good composition. (It is hardly visible, but one can try and see it at the extreme right of the image.) Its a wreath, it is circular, made of leaves, used for a decorative purpose and in a different context.
