Winning Treasury Challenge #118

Some words from LaCocoRouge...

Yet once again the team has conspired to create four days worth of spectacular treasuries focused on a single item which tells a story through multiple viewpoints.

And what stories there were to tell! They were bold, soft, moody, romantic, and heartbreaking with beginnings, endings, and middle points. From lofty dreams to the dark edges of romance I found story after story compelling me to look deeper and see what other treasures I might find.

Thank you to all who took the time to put together a Treasury this week featuring Butterfly Noir. Each T was special in its own unique and personal way.

There were quite a few that were in the running and in the end I chose a collection that captured a historic time of romance and glamour. It was aesthetically pleasing, versatile in the items that were chosen and reminiscent of the good times and hope that flourished in the ‘20’s. "This Side of Paradise" was aptly named and was curated this week by 636Designs.

Thank you to BBTAR for this opportunity and her amazing shop filled with inspiring items.

The torch this week passes to you 636Designs. We look forward to your inspiration item!
