Weekly Challenge - "Paisley"

"Paisley"
Inspired by: that coffee cup, y'all know I love my coffee & a few weeks ago I thought,
Light Bulb went off that is what the theme will be on my week to host..

Definition

Paisley or Paisley pattern is a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Indian and Persian origin, similar to half of the Yin yang symbol. The pattern is sometimes called "Persian pickles" by American traditionalists, especially quilt makers,[1] or "Welsh pears" in Welsh textiles as far back as 1888

Origins
Resembling a twisted teardrop, the kidney-shaped paisley is Persian and Indian in origin, but its western name derives from the town of Paisley, in central Scotland. [3]

HAVE FUN!!!
