Happy Canada Day!
If you’ve been following along with my Pinterest pins, the odd Instagram or Facebook post, maybe a Tweet here and there, then you have probably seen the design boards I’ve been creating. You might have even noticed them popping up on my sidebar…
Like this one. Inspired for July 1st!
This board was created on Polyvore. Are you familiar with Polyvore? If not, it is a social commerce website where members upload products into a shared product index and use them to create collages called ‘Sets’. Audrey Would! recently became a member, www.audreywould.polyvore.com, so I’ve been having some fun creating sets.
Polyvore has a wide range of groups you can belong to as a member, and there is a never-ending flow of contests you can enter your sets in. I have been creating sets for these contests, but mainly because the contests inspire me. You don’t have to enter a contest to create a set, but I like the framework and direction contests provide. It’s also really interesting to see what other people come up with for the same theme.
Here are a few samples of my contest sets.
This is the home office I wish I woke up to every day!
Each contest has random requirements, and ‘Back to Black’ was all about featuring your favorite styling with chalkboard decor!
I thought this was a perfect DIY tie-in, and seriously, how awesome are these ideas? I love the chair!
With my sets, I always incorporate at least one piece from Audrey Would! That’s half the fun of it, and sort of the point. I really enjoy coming up with different ways to feature Audrey pieces.
This is one of my favorite sets.
I think it’s because I really love the hand blown Aseda crystal coupes made by the Swedish art glass company, Aseda Glasbruk, circa 1960s… meant for champagne, but don’t you think they make a great sherbet bowl or Sunday dish, too?
This next set was about creating a ‘His & Hers Bathroom’, and this one was just way too much fun to resist!
Ladies, do you appreciate? Or maybe I should be asking, Gentlemen, can you relate?
And then there was creating a set with a quote as the criteria, and I knew just who to quote!
So now when you see my sets pop up, will you take a second look? Will you try to pick out which pieces came from Audrey Would!?
I hope so!
And I hope you are having a fantastic Canada day!
Thanks for stopping by!
