So the other day I took my 6-year-old daughter, who loves antiques, cats, and doilies, to an antique mall. This is her favorite place to go, it’s all very weird I know. As I perused the booths it dawned on me that I am a fraud because although I am shopping for antiques, and I’m feeling very artsy and historical, I’m actually searching for something that will be the least gross thing I can buy in here. Actually I prefer things that LOOK old but are more… new y’know? Less chance that any human juices have trespassed.
So although I’m a big fan of velvet Elvis art, which this reminds me of, I thought I would try out a little shabby chic makeover.
The nice wallpaper is helping this after the picture immensely. I tried posing it by a beautiful vase of flowers too, and only showing half of it. Nope, didn’t help. Two of my kids liked it better before.
