"Celebrations" Winner and Pinworthies

Hello fellow travelers - what a "Celebration" we had here at A Vintage Journey last month.  Thanks  to all who participated, we certainly enjoyed some amazing art.   That being said, it's time to announce the Winner and Pinworthy Mentions for our Celebrations Challenge.

Our winner, drawn by Random Org., is:

This lovely shabby/vintage easel card is colored so nicely and uses Tim's favorite color, brown.
Congratulations Tindaloo on your win.

And now for our Pinworthy picks, listed in no paticular order, chosen by the Creative Guides.

This clever mixed media project spelling out the word "Google" is just so much fun to look at.  A gift for a hubby who is up on how things work.  He has no need to look it up!

This beautiful creation really went off the grid with a winter celebration.  We certainly can enjoy the beauty of the season with this view of the snowy woods.

This wonderfully masculine piece says Tim all the way.  The great color combination and Tim's Time Travelers are a winner any day of the week.

If you haven't been around to visit the blogs of these talented ladies - wait no longer.  A simple click of the mouse on their blog name will take you there.

Thank you for traveling with us and please join our current challenge, Destinations.

Congratulations to all our winners, you will be receiving your badges soon.

Have a great weekend,
S@ndy & The Creative Guides
