Delicate Easter Colors - Artisan Handmade Three for Thursday

 

 

Easter is a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life. 

Janine di Giovanni

 

 

Since yesterday was Ash Wednesday - and Easter is approximately six weeks away - I started thinking about Easters past, always large gatherings of family and friends.  But, before everyone showed up at our house, we went to Easter Sunrise mass, the only time my father was ever cajoled into going to church. As a child, I always remember getting a new Easter dress, usually with a matching headband, socks and gloves(!) to wear to church on Easter Sunday.  And if my sister and I were lucky, a small purse would be included. Very stylish, indeed, and usually VERY itchy! The clothes were always spring pastel in color: pinks, pale yellows, pale greens, pale blues and such. A preview of all the pastel colored Easter eggs that were waiting to be found!

 

This week’s Three for Thursday features three items from three handmade artists that definitely are filled with the renewal of Easter springtime colors.  The artists are: jewelry artist Mary of PrettyGonzo; crochet artist Pamela of MagdaleneKnits; and, me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, also a jewelry artist.  I hope you enjoy my choices. And be sure to visit the artists’ shops for more splendiferous designs!

Thanks so much for this wonderful Easter promotion!

Thank you so much, Catherine! I remember Easter dresses too, and the gloves. I actually still have a little yellow beaded purse from one Easter. My creative Aunty used to get a new spring hat every Easter, and she take me to the department store with her, where I'd wait and wait in the milinery department while she tried on EVERY hat and asked me how it looked. lol. Those were the days. (I always found Good Friday interesting ... )

Will be promoting everything at some time today, on Pinterest and Twitter. G+ too.

Treats to the wonder woofie from the snoozing kitteh. xoxo
