European Street Team Challenge

Wow! This was unexpected! For the first time I won the EST challenge. Last week it was hosted by wonderful Staroftheeast. Big thanks to you and your friend for picking my diving turtle! ;)

Now I know how hard it is to pick a fun and challenging theme. I believe picking a winner will be even harder! :))
As I'm still in a mood for a great vacation this week's topic is gonna be...

In the Magic Castle

Photo credit to Robert D Bruce

Let's travel all around the world (or maybe just to the corner of own dreams) and visit old and majestic castles of different periods, countries and styles. I would like to see anything related to the castle - maybe a beautiful princess who lives in it, or a unique piece of furniture in one of the rooms, or a beautiful garden around it, or maybe something that is happening inside the castle, or just the building itself. Wherever your imagination takes you.

To enter the challenge you have to be a member of European Street Team and the item has to be newly listed. You can send your entries through convo on Etsy or via e-mail. No other restrictions apply! Just let your imagination fly! ;)

I'll be waiting for your beautiful entries!

The winner will be announced on Monday, July 26, after 22:00 (UTC +02:00)

xo,

Let's welcome the first entry! It's a Delicate white necklace by zsazsazsu1963. This fragile necklace was inspired by castle of Chenonceau that Sandra visited last month.


The second entry is a pair of original pinback buttons by SoleDeVita. Solvita used two entrance tickets to Bauska Castle in Latvia to make these lovely Key of the Castle buttons.



The third entry comes from Kreativlink, and it's Magic Castle - Journal, Notebook, Diary. I already see a beautiful princess writing her secret diary in this romantic journal. :)


The next entry, which is already number four, arrived from Riga, from sexyhandmade. Please, welcome Emerald Queen - adjustable hand cuff. It looks rich and royal. ;)

Entry number five is from oneperfectday. And we all know that there is no castle without a queen. So, the next piece for this challenge is The White Queen Cuff.


The sixth entry is a very intriguing Magic Castle - crocheted bracelet cuff with brain coral and pearls by staroftheeast. Sand castles are also magic! ;)

The seventh entry comes from kraplap and it is Dark Battlements Necklace. The sewn-together buttons resemble a row of battlements on the castle. But my man said it looks like a shiny armor. :)
