Marimekko Memory Game

Full confession: I bought this Marimekko Memory Game long before the girls were in any shape to play Memory. Now they are almost beyond it. But we pull it out for the beauty and the colour. And, of course, the infinite sorting possibilities for my anal nature.

It is a regular memory game. Everything looking the same on one side and pairs of gorgeous on the other side. But it is the gorgeous that makes it all worthwhile.

Can anyone say polka dot Marimekko quilt?

I bought this game at Kit, a few years back. But it is available on line here, here, and here.

Those would make fantastic magnets after the girls are too old for Memory!

So cute....I'm a big Marimekko fan.

Love Marimekko, have been a fan for quite some time. That Kit store looks amazing, please don't take me there.

I like saying Marimekko - it's about the only thing aside from quilting fabric designers and FrankLloydWright that makes me sound remotely designer affluent and knowledgeable:-especially when I just bought grommet drapes at Walmart.

How cool!

I would have enjoyed the memory games with my girls much more with these amazing designs!

I always love going in the stores and still have dreams of one of the canvas aspen trees in my home.
