How about a visit to a "French Garden House" this weekend? Lidy, the curator of this small, family-run business was born and raised in Europe, and professes to love "the mix of elegant French Antiques with Shabby and Vintage pieces, and a few new items mixed in for fun." The store carries pieces that mix European elegance with American style, old with new and they proclaim that "we love to inspire you!" How did they know we would come by their place to be inspired?! So much beauty among all of the items in the store, and it's especially inspiring if you appreciate vintage, shabby, timeless, or antique pieces!
If you don't have time to spend browsing the "French Garden House" website, attached are a few samples from the store that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!
How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, style, patterns, theme or color pallets. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Explore and enjoy ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
LOVED this challenge. That is, until I started on my card. These beautiful chairs were my inspiration piece Vintage Louis XV French style Serpentine Armchairs because I've got chairs like those (only red and gold and WAAAY less costly) and a stamp like that too, but nothing went according to plan, right from the start. Ever have one of those days? Anyhoo, here 'tis. The chair itself really is metallic, I just don't have decent lighting in which to take my pics. But thanks for a lovely challenge - I totally enjoyed doing some pretend online shopping!!
