Time for a Treasury Challenge!!!


                         For the Love of Books

Inspired by Lois's Positivity Team forum thread all about reading- what we like to read, our favourite books, and what we are presently reading, I felt the urge to do this month's Treasury Challenge on one of my favourite books- 'Little Women.'

Against the backdrop of the American Civil War, a family of women strive to live the best way they can in difficult times.  I see them as great examples of trying to live in a positive way; although there isn't much money around, they 'make do', and try to be grateful for the little that they do have. They grow in love for one another, and cherish life with all its obstacles.

               Girls 1860s Dress in Pink by Bonnie Blue Arts
               Fine Art Photography Civil war by  Wednesday Sisters Art
               Little Women Pages by JuJo's Attic
               Lovely Antique Women's Gloves by Fortsville

So, the challenge is to create a treasury inspired by your favourite book, or series of books, or even favourite author!! Leave a link in the comments below! Have fun!!



  1. I made one - my first in a LONG time!

  2. Gosh did I love that book TOO ;)

  3. It's too hard for me to choose a favorite book (or even a fave author or series), so I picked a book I recently finished reading, a novel by a writer I really enjoy... Madame Mirabou's School of Love, by Barbara Samuel. I guess it would fall into the category of women's fiction.

  4. I'm a huge book geek and aspiring writer, so I was excited to see this challenge. I chose Tamora Pierce's "Circle of Magic" series because it was my favorite series as a child and Tamora Pierce has been a huge inspiration to me. Of all the famous writers I've sent letters too, she's the only one who took the time to mail back to me and I've always kept her advice close to my heart.
    So here's my tribute to her:

  5. Here's my treasury for this challenge.

    What has it got in its pocketses?

    Based on The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein.

  6. Here is mine, based on the wonderful book "Into The Forest":
    Please stop by and see it if you get the chance.

  7. Here is mine which is based on the book I read daily, the Bible.

  8. I finally had a few minutes to create my team challenge treasury. It's inspired by Sue Bender's Stretching Lessons which is one of my all time favorite books. Enjoy!
