Winner -- Boston Skyline Necklace

After some deliberations, the creative team at The Refinery Boutique and I have chosen a winner of the Boston Skyline necklace contest...

Congrats to Leah!

Trees! On top of buildings.

Imagine little rooftop gardens complete with elegant trees (especially pines, firs, conifers) atop the tall buildings.

Yeah, it sounds really weird. But I'm all about trees and greenery, and not only would it give Boston a VERY unique skyline, but it would also give Boston's bird life some awesome places to roost/nest/reside.

I once read an article about how humans erecting all these buildings is creating so many "dead footprints" for wildlife in regards to green areas, and ever since then I've wanted to spread the idea of Growing Stuff on the Top of Your House (or Office Building), whatever.

So yep, that's my funny weird idea for Boston's skyline.

Well said.

I don't know if it's feasible to put a giant douglas fir on top of the Hancock Tower, but I like the idea...

I asked Kelly to take a picture of the necklace before she sends it out, so I'll post the image when I get it.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
