Winning Treasury Challenge #107

Some word from CircleofLifeVA...

When I got the message from Sarah last week, that I had won the treasury challenge, I was wildly excited! My husband asked if I had won a million dollars (treasury). It sure felt that way.

I want to thank Joanne from Vintage Rose Shop for choosing my treasury last week and allowing me this wonderful experience. Thank you to Sarah, our team captain; our leaders, Megha and Kim; and all of the volunteers who make the Nonteam a special place to be on Etsy. I enjoyed meeting so many of you through your treasury creations and your Etsy shops. I felt like I was visiting an amazing art gallery when I opened each treasury…all in the comfort of my house in the woods. My pinecone earrings danced through stories of gorgeous autumns, crisp winter days, perpetual spring, delightful collections of nature, weddings, architecture, joyful mixes of modern and vintage and the delights and turmoil of our daily lives as individuals, families and communities.
For me, it was about the treasury that drew me into the moment. How I felt when I opened it up, how each choice created the whole and how I kept wanting to go back to the place that was created. I found all of this in IrishVikingDesigns’ “Her friends watched in the shadows as she waited.” I loved the secrets of this woman, the companionship she had with nature, the lightness and darkness of the collection and the way my earrings slipped gently into her story. Sinead, thank you for your beautiful treasury and have yourself a fabulous week ahead.

I enjoyed each and every treasury and story that unfolded. Thank you so much for taking me along this journey with you.
