Can You See Something Ticking?

Do you ever become aware of something e.g. a word, a colour or a concept and then you see and hear it everywhere you go? This is me and striped ticking at the moment. I am seeing it everywhere I look. Is it more prevalent than it used to be or am I just more aware of it? Being the person I am I thought I'd do a Google search for French Ticking and here's what I found. The eBay store - Antique Vintage European Textiles has the most breathtaking range of truly vintage French ticking... some of the yards are complete with holes and other flaws. I also love the rustic accessories in their product shots. The second I found is The Linen House - based in the UK they source fabric from northern France that is mostly ticking, checks and plains. The also deliver to Australia!
