Treasury Challenge #23... sunshine!

Hi Everyone! Sorry this post is a day late- there were some technical issues yesterday.

Welcome to the Vintage Market Team's newest Treasury Challenge! Challenges are great because they not only allow us to promote on another, but it also allows us to stretch our creativity a bit and have some fun!

The theme for this challenge will be "Sunshine". Make a cheerful treasury this week!

Normally, the winner of the previous weeks' treasury challenge has one of their items picked to be included in this week's treasuries! Last week's love winner was by Amy'sOldSchool. However, Amy is out of town getting some sun and her shop is currently in vacation mode. So for this week, there is no required item inclusion! Great job Amy- hope you guys are having an awesome time in Arizona!
The rules:

1- Follow our blog!

2- Link back this blog post in your treasury comments. This helps others find the challenge and enter.

3- Add the link to your treasury in the "comments" section below.

4- Tour treasury must contain the tags "vmteamchallenge", "vmteamchallengesunshine" and "etsyteamtreasury".

5- When tweeting your treasury, use the hashtags #EtsyTeamTreasury and #VMTEAM .

6- You must include at least 8 Vintage Market Team members' items (found using the search term "vmteam" under the vintage tab).

7- Your treasury must contain a mix of handmade and vintage items - AND NOT ONE OF YOUR ITEMS

Have fun making these treasuries! And feel free to be as creative as you want with the theme!

Time to Vote: VMTEAM Love Challenge!

We have three great treasuries to choose from this week- vote for your fave in the sidebar poll to the right:

Tuesday Tip 2011, Week 6

Chenille Stems - A Gentle Twist on Cleaning

Our happy Tuesday Tip Woman is always writing her list.   Maybe she's planning to add chenille stems to her cleaning supplies.

These flexible, fuzzy twists are handy for cleaning all kinds of hard-to-reach places.  Like that vintage teapot spout.  The tiny bud vase.  The crusty flower frog.  The gummy colander. 

To avoid scratching with the sharp wire inside, bend the stem in half and use the rounded end.  Find chenille stems and the smaller pipe cleaners in your local craft store. 

We're always looking for ways to care for our precious vintage objects.  Share your methods for cleaning, stain removal, storage, protection, etc.  Submit your tips to ThreeOldKeys, and we'll use them in future Tuesday Tips.
