That is funny, because my husband thought the same thing, then I told him it was paper, he said no people will think it is real too funny.

That is funny, but I don't know if that makes a better case for using the fake floors.

If his initial instinct was "who'd wear a bow that had been on the floor" but only realized it was a fake floor when he thought about it then that would suggest that as cool as the shabby chic factor is that it would make sense to find an equally appealing backdrop without the negative association.

I had a friend look at my pics on some "wooden" scrapbook paper and say y do you lay your bows on an old fence?? Don't they get dirty?? I never thought about it until then, I loved the way the bows looked on the "wooden" background.......Think I might need to go buy more paper.....

The more this thread goes on the more I am convinced that a more "plain" background would be appealing to buyers. At least one that isn't a floor. The fake grass one would probably get the same response. I currently use a velvet in black and one in white or a scrapbook paper in black or cream with a slight swirl pattern in the same color. I have also used a picture frame with some white rosette ribbon across it to take a picture of a little wedding peacock hair fascinator.

When I first saw the peeling wood fake floor pics years ago (before knowing it was fake) I was thinking, "I can't believe that mom put her baby on a floor with peeling paint, what if they get a splinter or if it has lead paint", lol. I was such a dingbat! Now I know better

I had a cute idea about clipping some bows and clippies to the barbed wire fence out around the pasture and taking a pic with some of the barbs in here and there.....now I'm wondering about that too......

OMG ~ me too!!! Someone posted the cutest picture last year (I think ~ lol) and I was thinking that it could NOT be safe to have a baby on that kind of rotting floor and what kind of mama would do that?? Never would have thought, at the time, that it was a prop.

Great food for thought, Maxine!
