A Lion Indeed

With snow in the forecast for this gray, early-March day, I thought it fitting to acknowledge the month's cultural characterization as coming "in like a lion" with a few winter-white selections from the makers of Etsy NY (and contextualizing/attributional comments by me).

Reminiscent of delicate snowflakes dreamily drifting downward (onto the cold, hard earth)....

Simple elegance, and salt somewhat resembles snow.

Stark, white Winter, and snowflake-like geometry.

This pretty much sums it up: Winter, with Spring just underneath -- and Taxis

Let's enjoy this little dusting in the hope knowledge that it is Winter's last hurrah!

Etsy NY for your shopping needs!

With the Holidays upon us we are being inundated with gift ideas and consumerism. This is a great time to sign up for EtsyNY team page on facebook.

Everyday we post treasuries especially made with items chosen from Etsy NY shops.

Check out this past Wednesday's treasury Under 25.00. Not only is each gift under $25.00, it is a beautiful collection of tangerines, yellows and marmalades. A fresh take on holiday colors!  Now the treasury is not only etsy new york members, we like to spread the love.
