Congratulations to Kathy of Etsy shop lovintagefinds for her winning treasury collection S'mores Summer Nights .... Anyone?  We put forth the theme of Woo Hoo, It's Summer to our Etsy shopping guide curators and asked them to put together a collection around this general theme.  We had a tough time choosing our winner from a pool of 93 submissions as each collection was truly inspiring!  What comes to your mind when you think of summer?  It's probably safe to say that the single uttering of the word "s'mores" instantly transports you to camping, barbecues, carved sticks, and some good ol' fashion sticky, gooey summer sweetness FUN!  Why are those marshmallow chocolate sandwiches so DE-licious?  In her winning collection, Kathy uses warm earth tones to pull together her selections and creates an inviting mood.  She has captured the essence of summer and summed it up in the yummy treat of a s'mores.  Love this lip smacking goodness Kathy - congratulations!

Outdoor adventures and summer go hand in hand.  That's why we love this creative collection by Luke of LukeLampCo as he takes us on a hike in nature with non other than the Boy Scouts!  With these dutiful young ones as our guides, we can rest assured about our excursion into the wilderness.  Luke has put together a wonderful story for us here with his Boy Scout, nature, outdoorsy finds!  Get ready to put on your hiking boots, pack your bags and head out for the woods!  Oh, and don't forget the bug spray!

Traveling is a big theme for the summer, but sometimes it's hard to get that time off or (if you're self-employed) make the time to take the time off!  So why not bring the thrill of your dream vacation right into your own home.  Would you like to go on a safari?  Caroline of Etsy shop DarkRide gives us just this sort of inspiration with her collection Safari Cottage.  No, we're not suggesting that you adopt a heard of elephants to get in the mood, but rather spice up your look and your home decor.  For those of you really going on a safari this summer - lucky you!  For the rest of us, we can satisfy our inner adventurer with any of Caroline's suggestions!

Garden clogs, compost + wheelbarrows - how many of you love to garden?  Planting a little seed + watching it grow into a food bearing plant is simply amazing.  Summer is absolutely THE season for gardening, but Monica of seaandasters has put a creative spin on the whole experience of gardening with her collection summer ~garden by night~.  By mixing together Etsy items that speak both to nature and the depth of the night, Monica has created a magical mood that almost transports you to a garden filled by the darkness.  A beautiful arrangement of finds for garden, nature + moonlight gardening lovers!

The change of seasons is also an ideal time for freshening up your style.  It's summer so we're thinking of lighter fabrics and cheerful colors - how about pinks and yellow punctuated with black?  We know you absolutely love that old iphone cover that you bought last year, but it's quite faded + you can't ignore those scratches anymore - time to upgrade!  Don't know where to turn?  Let Jillian of Etsy shop JillianReneDecor be your personal Etsy stylist and shop with ease!  From iphone cases to accessories to that new vintage dress - Jillian has got you covered!  So start your summer season off right by treating yourself to something precious + oh so special, made just for YOU.

Finally, in keeping with our tradition, we're going to end our challenge post with a collection from our resident treasury entertainment stylist Jenn of Etsy shop Palimpsestic Let's see what Jenn is up to this summer - Jenn has a natural talent for curating some of the most creative + engaging collections that always put a big smile on our faces.  We've come to look forward to seeing how Jenn will interpret the challenge theme as it's always a treat!  Let's see - if you don't find her Climbing the Water Tower then you'll probably find her enjoying some Shakespeare in the Park!  Sounds like a relaxing way to enjoy the summer Jenn! 


Thank you to ALL who participated + we look forward to the next challenge come July!  Enjoy your summer everyone!
