Winning Treasury - Challenge #3

Some words from RogueButterfly......

ok you creative little monsters, after much agonizing, i have finally chosen a winner. i was just blown away by all of the talent out there in etsyland…

i knew i was in trouble when i had "narrowed it down" to 97 treasuries…but ultimately i could pick only one and the one i chose gave my heart a nostalgic tug…it reminds me of watching the sonny and cher show as a little girl and hearing her sing gypsies, tramps and thieves. i didn't really know what the song meant at the time but it was certainly intriguing! the raw and primal feel of this winning treasury really worked for me.

giant thanks to all who participated! i love where everyone went with this one…the different moods that you created…i ate blueberry pie, had tea in kashmir, traveled to morocco and india, went to a bohemian party and burning man, had my perfect day complete with lots and lots of songs, oh the songs!…just when crystal blue persuasion (concrete blond's cover of course) stopped playing in my head, hazy shade of winter started up! explosions of color, variations on circles, spirographs, carnivals, gypsies, runaways, nomads, vagabonds, wanderers, surfer girls, the grapple and sassy doily undies! wow.

i am so humbled to be surrounded by all of your creative energy, i hope everyone had as much fun making treasuries as i did judging them, and i hope you keep 'em coming…you guys ROCK!

i have posted my top ten faves on my facebook page, which i literally JUST created and is totally under construction, please forgive me:

Hahaha! I love the number you "narrowed it down to"! Funny. There were some really great treasuries, though--thanks for posting them on your facebook! Fun to see what favorites you found!

And, Jenn, congratulations! Can't wait to see what item you pick!
