Vintage Travel Winner and Pinworthies

Hello everybody!  It's time to reveal the Winner and the Pinworthies for the Vintage Travel and Luggage challenge hosted by Brenda last month.  Thank you to all those who played along - as always there were so many fantastic entries, and we enjoyed visiting all of them.

Now, without further ado, here is the randomly selected winner of the voucher sponsored by Country View Crafts...

That's Autumn from Sew, Paper, Paint with this absolutely stunning altered board game.  Do follow the link to take a closer look at this amazing piece of vintage altered art.

Congratulations, Autumn!  Your voucher and winner's badge will be on their way to you shortly, and we hope you will join us here as a guest in the months to come.


And now for the Pinworthies, selected by Brenda and the Creative Guides.  Here they are, in no particular order...

#6 Helen at Never Enough Time

#19  Esther at Crafty Effusions

#24 Katie K at Inky Angel

Great work all round, congratulations.  Your badges will be on their way to you shortly, along with an invitation to join us as guests here at A Vintage Journey soon.

Thank you again to all who played along.  We hope you're enjoying Tracy's Industrial theme this month - there are already some amazing entries, and we're looking forward to seeing lots more.

See you somewhere along the road!
