Joyful jugs #thejugseries winners

Jay from @foundbyher who collaborated on this month's competition, sums up the entries so beautifully that I will let Jay's kind words complete the post. But first, thanks Jay for a fun collaboration and for providing such a beautiful antique piece for the winning entry and also for the additional runners up prizes! Also, selecting the winners must have been difficult, so thanks too for doing the hard task of judging!

You can find Jay on Facebook, Instagram and through her website Found By Her  where she blogs about the vintage pieces she finds and also sells through her online shop.

Jay from @foundbyher
"Thank you to everyone for joining me and Claudia in this challenge. It was wonderful to get so many fabulous and creative entries, but also to receive such lovely feedback about how enjoyable the challenge was for many people.  I really loved the many sentimental stories these jugs evoked: memories from childhood, about much-loved and much-missed relatives, or even about comforting cups of morning latte. Choosing a winner and runners up was so difficult, I could have chosen so many more, but I managed to whittle all the gorgeousness down to 3 winners.  

As a thank you to everyone who entered, I would like to extend a 15% discount on any purchases over $30 to use in my Etsy shop, Found By Her - just use the coupon code: 15OFF!  I will also feature the winners and many more of my favourites on my blog in the near future.

So to the winners……
Lisa from @donnelday

This photograph really spoke to me with the jug gently shining out from the moody background.  I love how Lisa captured the jug, which had belonged to her grandmother, and made it the hero of the image.  Lisa, I hope you enjoy your prize!

Wendy from @wendypaulamuses 

Wendys photo was one of the first entries and it really stayed with me the entire competition.  The colours are just perfect: from the whole comforting, milky feel of the composition down to the way the rim matches the print on the cloth. 

April from @aprilsloves

Anyone who knows me or follows my feed would see that Im a big fan of the imperfectly perfect and April has certainly captured my heart with this shot! Love the chippy old chair and the fabulous old zinc garden jug.  The colours were also beautifully chosen to create that dreamy, spring-like tone but also allow the jug to become the feature.
