Jennifer Dare Designs Review & Giveaway




I'm happy to introduce you all to the lovely Jennifer of Jennifer Dare Designs on Etsy.  


Jennifer is a book lover, distance runner, Jesus follower, freelance editor, and total sucker for all things vintage.  After graduating from college and marrying her high-school sweetheart, and before becoming a stay-at-home mom, she worked with words in the print journalism world.  Now, she gets her fix while the kids nap.  


Jennifer Dare Designs is Etsy's best for prints with your favorite quotes and shabby chic frames to display them.  Jennifer has bookshelves that are crammed with books that have dog-earred paperbacks full of underlined passages, many of which have made their way onto typography prints and notecard sets.  But, she also welcomes custom requests for those of you who have a favorite quote or passage of your own.




Jennifer sent me this adorable "love is all you need" print that features an owl...my favorite :)


I apologize for the glare in the glass, I'm no professional photographer.  ;)  

I absolutely LOVE this print.  Love really IS all you need and my husband and I remind ourselves of that often.  Also, I'm obsessed with owls, so this guy fits right into the rest of my owl decor around the house.  


Jennifer's frames are also a must have to display your special print.  I love the shabby chic look of this ivory frame which is offered in several other colors to match your home decor.


Jennifer hand paints each of her frames with two or three coats of paint over a light wood base and hand-distressed for a lovely aged, weathered shabby chic look.    She also puts a clear satin polyurethane coating for a subtly polished finish and extra durability.

I am looking forward to working with Jennifer again when I start my gallery wall in our basement.  I would love to incorporate more of her work in my home.

  1. There are a few that I really like. 'Present over perfect' as I need to remind myself that all the time. I also love the 'grow old along with me...'
