Feathers and Fur
(Projects with birds or animals)
love this Mother Goose vintage image from TJ Designs Vintage cards
Hope you are inspired to join us...
Remember we are a vintage or shabby chic challenge - I say this because recently we've been getting many entries that don't fit the challenge. We believe it's because entries are looking for challenges that may fit their projects without knowing that our MAIN THEME is always "vintage or shabby chic"....
here are the definitions of each that may help you decide...
the easy one is" vintage" =
an old item, reflection of previous era, and processed grapes LOL
From Wikipedia, the hard one to understand is "shabby chic" =
a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from genuine period decor.
Well, now I've probably confused you more...
Bottom line - they both reflect time gone by! (-:
hope those of you snowed-in have power!! that's the worst part ... not having the good ole electric!
