About "The Shabby Chic Hunt" :
I always find it very exciting to sneak unnoticed into the attic of my grandmother. It is dark, the air is full of dust and only a beam of light shining through the small window is showing me the way to all the treasures which evoke memories in us.
On a small wooden shelve i found the old radio, that my grandfather loved so much. It already had a crack , but it still seemed to work fine. I went to the old couch and my hand slid over the slightly rough fabric. It was a little bit dirty and blurred, but i still could see the small roses in soft pink. I took one of those fluffy pillows in my hand and even more dust dust kicked up.
In an other corner i saw an old dress of my grandmother, decorated with wonderful ruffles, sewn from a lightweight and transparent fabric.
It was like these old treasures on the attic were showing me a past, telling me stories and at the same time it all looked so elegant. In my mind's eye i saw my grandmother dancing in her livingroom to all those romantic songs played by my grandfather's radio, wearing that beautiful dress on a summerday full of happniess.
I started dreaming that with a little bit of retouch that couch would look perfect in my home. It would give it a cosy and living look. And just couldn't wait to try on that dress. With a little stitch-work that dress would be a great outfit for a summerparty. I would definitely look lovely in it.
It's time to bring beautiful memories alive again, so show us your talent and give your creation a shabby chic look !
All kind of creators are welcome to join us !
Happy Hunting !
