Etsy Word: Primogeniture

The word for this week was:
primogeniture \pry-moh-JEN-ih-choor\, noun:

1. The state of being the firstborn of the same parents; seniority by birth among children of the same family.
2. (Law) An exclusive right of inheritance that belongs to the eldest son.

This was a hard one!!
Denise offered three examples of first sons. First, a collage from her own shop, "The Improvement of Offspring." If you haven't seen this girl's collages, you need to head over to her Etsy store RIGHT NOW and check them out. Not only are they visually appealing and complex, they also highlight her sharp wit. Each collage features an original vintage photograph, a snippet of text from a vintage book, bits of ephemera and collage items, and a story on the back that connects all of these items together.

Anyway, back to the word of the week. As examples of first sons, we have her original collage, and then items with pictures of American presidents:

The Improvement of Offspring - DeniseFelton

President GeorgeWashington Rubber Stamp - Terbearco

Artist Stamps - George W Bush - Twine Workshop

And finally, for my contributions to this week's Etsy word I focused on royalty and birth order.

The Queen Lioness collage - Lookability

This Is A Print Of A Girl Who Peas In Bed - thedreamygiraffe

Sibling Rivalry - kochansky
Well, that's it for this week! Check back Monday for a new Etsy word!

I wasn't smart enough for this word - I did try. I'll be back on board next week.

Oooooo. I love what you found! Sibling rivalry is hilarious!

And thanks so much for the shout out, girlfriend.
