I follow a lot of crafty mama blogs, and they all use a certain set of terms that are just funny to me.  I have a degree in Marketing, so I understand the idea of language marketing.  Still it's funny.  Here are the words that get me.

vintage (ummm you mean, old?)
re-purposed, or upcycled (hmmm recycled?)
inspiration (let's be honest, we're all stealing ideas)

I guess they are funny to me, because I get sucked into using them, and sucked into looking at stuff and thinking it's cooler when it's "vintage" or "repurposed".  Instead of just an old, recycled t-shirt.
