I was given these lovely vintage Lexicon cards as a gift from a dear friend. Although I knew I wanted to use them to make a piece of art, it has taken me ages to decide on the right words or message.
Finally I decided on this:
It's my version of 'don't be like the rest of them, darlin' that is attributed to a number of people (Coco Chanel and Eudora Welty, American writer).
I think it is the perfect message for the kids as they get older and I know conformity will dominate their decisions.
I also like what it adds to our living room - which is slowly getting there!
