Bonjour from Campagne Maison
I received my Summer 2010 issue of my all time favorite magazine, Romantic Country, this week. I just love Fifi O'Neal and her eye for style! I love Flea Market finds, I love chippy paint, I love vintage pieces, I love collections, I love salvaged architectural items, I love old and imperfection, I love understated romantic decor. I am a self described "Shabby Chic, Old World, Hollywood Regency, Parisian inspired Junkie" ---HOWEVER---
zoom in for a close-up....
there is something about this new "wrinkled" look that distracts my eye and drives me bananas!! The cover of the magazine is full of all the things that I love BUT, the "wrinkles" in that tablecloth throw me for a loop!
All I can think about is the "tongue lashing" that I would receive if my Mama came over to my house and saw "un-ironed" linens. I grew up in the day of "STARCHING and IRONING". She taught me at an early age--back when stiff doilies were the rage and it was a sin to sleep on a pillow case that wasn't ironed!! My, my, my, the times-- they are 'a changing!
I know. It is weired. I am weird. You ask yourself, now how can a person who loves all the crazy mixture of mis-matched "stuff" that I love, HATE "wrinkles".....
(Maybe it's an omen, maybe it is a subconscious effort to drown out the inevitable--you know...the crow's feet--the neck--the buttocks--the thighs...oh well, that's just a thought)!
Tell me...what is YOUR take on this "wrinkle" thing? Please tell me that it isn't just ME!!
Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company!
