Even though there are at least 3 more months of cold weather here on the East Coast, I felt like doing something with a springy feel ...
I Love Polyvore, It's been wonderful on so many levels..so fun and I've met the most amazing people. Today I experienced something I've known has really affected some close Poly friends on here..and that is the topic of COPYING..I think it's wrong to copy on this forum..for so many reasons..the biggest being that it is stealing ones artistic expression..a lot of thought and effort go into these sets..I received a notice when I logged in this morning from Polyvore stating someone had use THREE of my items to create their set. They included the link. I've gotten these before, when someone has used items from my sets, they notify me. Standard practice for Poly, right? right. So I clicked the link. The set was clearly a copy of my set with a few minor details, I added more decorative trims and used a few different accessories..but the set contained the three main pictures that I had searched for and saved off of Pinterest...I have seen other people duplicate my particular style of bows in the corners etc, but this was the use of the three photos that I had in my set. It felt wrong. So I copied my link and put it on the comments section of this person's page/set. I received an email this evening from this person saying they have never seen me or my sets before. how they don't appreciate my childish behavior etc. I responded, and they have blocked me. Rather cowardly thing to do, call someone out then not even give them the chance to respond. Regardless, I know the truth since I was notified. It's the principle of the matter, it's wrong to copy other's work. I'm sure you all agree. With that being said, I want to dedicate this to a few dear friends who i KNOW are right there with me on this subject..dear @nz-carla and dear @tattered-rose Love you ladies xox
And to you all..have a WONDERFUL evening :)

Victorian~Vintage Quintessence

Victorian~Vintage Quintessence

Our beautiful logo was created by Ellen Hilart. She is such a fabulous artist both in real life and on Polyvore. Thank you Ellen.
 
There are several Victorian~Vintage groups on Polyvore. I wanted to create one that is the essence of them all. Quintessence means the most pure essence or most perfect embodiment of a thing or being. This group will be anything pertaining to the late 1800's to the 1930's. This will comprise The Victorian Era, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Deco and very early Vintage. I want this group to be the best on Polyvore for sets that will relate to the Victorian~Vintage era. I want to see sets that encompass life, love, memories, family, children, Victorian portraits, etc of this magnificent era. I will accept fashion sets, however they must have some form of art in them and must be either Victorian or Vintage. I will be glad to answer any questions, and provide any guidance along the way. This should be a wonderful group and I plan on keeping it fun too.
