Rant

I bloody hate it when people selling stuff on Ebay describe anything and everything as "Art Deco"!!!!! Aaaaaarrrrggghhhh!!!!

I bloody hate it when people spell "chaise longue" as "chaise lounge", "Wedgwood" as "Wedgewood" and "Bakelite" as "Bakerlite".

I'm sure someone reading this will bloody hate my wanky snobbishness, let alone my imperfect grammar.

Feel free to slap me about.

That's my pet hate too! What about Chests of Draws (instead of Drawers), Otterman for Ottoman, and even Chabby Chic?

Yes! I forgot to mention the "draws". I haven't seen "otterman" -- I think that would make me giggle!

And anything made last year described as 'vintage'.....aaaarrgghhh!!!

Vintage and antique would have to be the two most abused terms on Ebay! (Followed by Art Deco.)
