Let's welcome a new week with our latest Featured Shop, OLD CHATEAU, who specializes in photography props, accessories, & party decor. The items have a distinct vintage shabby-chic feel, and each item is unique. My personal favorite are OLD CHATEAU's crowns, like the ice cream parlor crowns shown below. Read further to find out how you can win the brown & cream "Fudgeswirl" crown!
When asked how she got started, Jennifer, the creator/designer of OLDCHATEAU says, "For as long as I can remember I have found beauty in rusted, frayed, weathered and overgrown treasures. My shop, OLDCHATEAU, pays homage to my love of all things vintage."
"My signature style is soft and romantic, and I love working with natural materials including burlap, vintage lace and cotton fabrics. From baby blankets to photography props, each piece is unique, often one-of-kind. Each piece is made with care and attention to detail in the hope that it will be something that you or a friend will treasure for years to come."
I asked Jennifer what she finds most challenging about having her own business, and she said. "keeping up with the house and children while still being creative! but wouldn't change a thing...sweet chaos is where it's at! lol."
Jennifer says "I am obsessed basically with anything old and pink. I would paint my entire house shades of pink if the Mr. would let me! I love networking through Facebook. I have met sooo many amazing people. Photographers, Mom's & other shop owners. I love to see everyone's vision of my creation, that is the beauty of being able to share on FB! and RELAX???? not on the agenda!"
Jennifer wants her fans & customers to know, "I make each creation by hand. I try to keep the ideas fresh and fun, limiting the amount of each item I sell. Keeping it original. I love working and talking with my customers and have become good friends with some of them, for this I am grateful. With each sale my heart still skips a beat to know that someone feels the same way I do about my creations. It is a true joy to be able to have my passion be more than a hobby."
