Winner of The Copy Me Challenge, FJI style

Mmmmmm, typography.

Vignettes fooling me that I was there myself swingin’ my fav rusty treasures around. (I myself own 5 things in this picture!)

A FJI signature of plants amongst the rust and chippy wood.

An FJI style ‘toybox’ with signature barn stars, rusty relics and antique checkerboards. I positively LOVE how this was set out.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the most amazing chippy ladder I’ve ever laid eyes on. I am a ladder fanatic.

Smokin’ cool gate, antique ball jars, the crock, the plant…

An antique tool tote anyone would go crazy for loaded with clay goodness… stacks, layers, rustic, wood….

How about some wild applause for a well deserved win going to:

Sharon, from Elizabeth and Co!

Miss Mustard Seed deemed Sharon’s entry the winner because she honestly felt like her work was mine. And I whole heartily agree 100%. I LOVE your entry, Sharon and am thrilled the win went to you!

Let’s go for a little walk around her blog, shall we?

Well now… if you’d like to learn how to frame a mirror from scratch, Sharon’s got an AWESOME tutorial HERE.

Ohhh… and  check out the trumeau mirror Sharon whipped up for the Miss Mustard Seed style Copy Me Challenge. Gorgeous!

2010 appears to have been an amazing year for Sharon. In May 2010 she fired up her blog. She also joined forces with friends Karla and Susan and created Elizabeth and Co. Vintage. How fun!

  They held their first vintage tag sale in September and made out like bandits! I mean, take a look at the stunning transformations. Isn’t the topper on that table the most wonderful patina?

Um… MMS.. did you catch this one?

Love the hazy white highlights.

This glaze shadows this amazing piece in all the right places.

How fun! I would have loved to wander through here.

Isn’t this clever for a house number? Customers kept wanting to buy it. I would have too!

Sharon also isn’t a stranger to SNS. This was one of my most favorite tutorials she posted. Ice candles with real cranberries, how gorgeous!

You can check out all of the above in Sharon’s Best of 2010 post HERE.

Oh, lovely! Sharon’s into vintage too. Isn’t this entire Christmas vignette delightful? Love that sign!

Oh my word… check out this outstanding piece… yup, she does vintage VERY well. I love the vintage tool boxes on top of this wonderfully chippy cabinet. Love how wide the glass doors are.

Sharon, your home is beautiful, what you’ve created with your friends is so cool, and your work outstanding.

And congrats!  Loved your entry so very much. It was a complete pleasure wandering through your blog.

Sharon’s win will be custom made for what she desires, so Sharon, I’ll be in touch with you. 🙂 Stay tuned for more on that one.

Care to check out Sharon’s blog? Here you go!

Thanks to everyone for being a part of this amazingly fun challenge and another congrats to the five finalists. I know first hand how difficult Miss Mustard Seed’s decision was.

Equally grueling was my own choice over at Miss Mustard Seed’s. You can check it out HERE.
