We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Challenge 30 - Vintage

This challenge is all about something that is "Vintage" but what exactly is "vintage"?  If you look the word up you nearly always get some definition of "wine".    Look up clothing or fashion and you will find that anything relating to before the 1920's is referred to as "antique" whereas "vintage" can mean anything from the late 1920's to 20 years before the present date.

So I guess "vintage" is anything from 1920 to 1994.  Doesn't settle in my head though but we could hardly call this challenge "Antique" so it is up to you to make something which you refer to as "Vintage" in your own mind.  Here are our renditions:



and now a word from Von:

"Hi  all it's been a joy looking at all your wonderful creation but I feel I need to take a break from the commitment of Artful Times but plan to be back later in the year.
 Keep up the good work Neet"
