Winning Treasury - Challenge #17

Some words from theelmsvintage......
Hello Fellow Non-Team Enthusiasts!

First, I'd like to thank each and everyone of you the time and effort you put into creating beautiful treasuries for this challenge. The impact on my shop was great! I got many item hearts as well as shop hearts and my 25th sale (an extra big thank you is owed to EWMcCall whose lovely treasury got my jewelry box to the front page where it promptly sold. THANK YOU!).

It was so fun to look through all your treasuries. I was stunned with the creative and imaginative themes you all came up with - celebrating mothers, sister and daughters, musical whimsy, embarking on safaris, classic nautical preppiness, secret lovers and hiding places and even some inspiration from my profile - your collections really ran the gammut.

The winner of this challenge incorporated beautiful, classic, preppy nautical themes to create a stunning treasury with my brass seagull as inspiration. shripsaladcircus's treasury retro wavelenths is the winner for this challenge. I absolutley adored all of her picks and it really spoke to my personal aesthetic. Congrats to you shripsaladcircus!

A few of my other favorites were: The Secret Hidey Hole in My Heart - waterwaif, Come to My Party - sofisticata, Welcome to My Honeysuckle Gift Shop - pamelasjewelry, Vintage Closet - singlestory, The Cabin - palimpsestic, Sing a Song of Secret Places - EfiaFair,
For the love of the game - WiseSewcialTies, Dreaming of the islands - WhiteRabbit7, She Locks up Her Dreams - SheffieldAlpacas, Nothin' but gull - wearitoutvintage, Nautical and nice - dilettant, ~Modern Navy, White, and Brass~ - aubepine, What if? - handjstarcreations, and meet me in the music room - tahlia day.

Again, much thanks for everyone who particpated in this challenge! I'm looking forward to next weeks challenge... good luck to everyone!

Love the nautical theme! Congrats! I guess I've been in hiding - didn't even realize we had a new/replacement item. Yay for the jewelry box selling! Treasury Non Team Rocks!
