Winning Treasury #171

Some words from Martha...

Thank you so much, Anna Lisa, for choosing my treasury last week. It’s such an honor to have been chosen and to judge the challenge this week. There were so many beautifully curated treasury collections, and I enjoyed spending time with every one of them. I know the time and amount of heart that is put into each curation. Thank you all so much for participating. It has been a joyful experience.

To see the interpretations drawn from my pearl necklace were exciting and humbling. Treasuries of winter light, spring freshness, nature, quiet moments, happiness and melancholy, love on so many levels…dreamy and romantic and wink-wink fun, and tributes to those who have found strength through personal experiences.

The treasury I chose is Paved with gold by Andrea from DotStitch. Each vignette connected together and perfectly composed one piece of art. The vintage and modern mix created an invigorating metropolitan energy and I felt as if I was transported onto those streets and into that life. Congratulations, Andrea! Thank you so much for your entry and have a wonderful week ahead.
