Isn't flea market style just another name for vintage? And aren't there tons of interpretations of style within vintage? And what makes prairie different from country anyway? And who decides? Golly gee! I have a friend who went to buy at a major furniture market a month ago where he was told that the buzz words for new furniture styles this year are Vintage Farmhouse and Rustic Country. I have found that many folks interpret painted furniture, especially white, as Shabby Chic style. A famous trademark name.
I love old stuff, so I shop where you find it. That's mostly flea markets. Call it what you want. This week I went looking for garden stuff. I hardly ever find what I'm actually looking for. But look at what jumped into my basket very first thing this time!? A couple of cement garden finials in white! I then headed straight to the nursery to cure a very bad case of spring fever. . . .
This shot reminds me of Victorian flower paintings with very dark backgrounds, but it's just azaleas in late afternoon lighting.
Okay, so I call it cottage. Always have. Always will.
Adios February! Hello March!
Thanks so much y'all for stopping by!
