A big round of applause for Nancy of fishandlotus for her winning submission Winged Migration!  We fell in love with not only the thoughtful curation, but with the creative interpretation of our theme September Sun.   As Nancy put it in her curator's note, "The waning September sun tells the birds it's nearing time to fly south."  Each item tells a story and then the whole creates such a stunning mood - Brilliant Nancy!  

As the winner, an item from Nancy's shop fishandlotus will be featured in the top row of the next challenge - mark your calendars for September 23rd!  Look for the theme announcement prior to the challenge.

Honorable Mentions:

Did you know we broke a record?  We had a total of 64 submissions on Friday - check them out!  You can imagine that choosing one winner out of 64 was no walk in the park - especially when we had such a strong pool of submissions!  As the winner from our last challenge, we asked Jenn of palimpsestic to help us choose the winner and 2 honorable mentions.  All three of us submitted a list of our top 10 picks - it was fun to see what each one picked, but challenging because we had such little overlap!  

We narrowed the list down to a list of 6 that we all agreed on and we went from there.  It wasn't hard because in the end - they were ALL gorgeous!   We'd like to highlight 2 honorable mentions:

The pale straw palette and modern styling of Francesca of FrancescaLancisi's collection Remains of the Day caught our eye.  The color reflects the changing light as the sun sits a bit lower in the sky come September - can't you just feel the golden light moving through the landscape?  Simply beautiful Francesca!

Brooke of peifferStudios collection Golden Green Autumn Light shares a different perspective on the theme September Sun with silky greens bathing in the golden light of autumn - wow!  We love how she wove together a tapestry of tones to create that perfect mood of the light come fall.  So lovely Brooke!


Let us close by saying "Thank You" to everyone who participated.  You all help make this team so special and we are grateful for your treasury curating talent!  We hope Jenn enjoyed seeing so many of her shop items highlighted for the day.  We look forward to seeing you next time on the 23rd!
