Challenge #77 - Vintage

Hello and welcome to the next challenge at The Male Room.

What does the word VINTAGE mean to you? I found this definition:

of high quality and lasting value, or showing the best and most typical characteristics of a particular type of thing, especially from the past.

I think the most scary thing is that as I get older all the things that surrounded me as I grew up are now considered vintage! So this theme should give everyone plenty of scope to get creative and share some vintage vibes.


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Majda - a follower from our instagram feed. Her blog is an absolute delight and filled with great creativity and artistry. Be sure to go take a peep - HERE - and leave her some love to acknowledge her talent.

Guest Designer - Majda

Do you follow us on instagram and facebook? If yes maybe you could be joining us as a future Guest Designer. If no, well what are you waiting for? Follow the links and get following!

The Male Room DT have also searched out their vintage supplies and created some truly inspirational projects to help you on your way.  You can find out more about their thought processes by popping over to their blogs.  It would be great if you left them a lovely comment while you're there.
