I just realized today that I have just over 200 hearts in my Etsy shop! To celebrate, I am offering 15% off everything in my shop through tomorrow, April 4. Use coupon code 200HEARTS at checkout from Lizbeth’s Garden.
The purple and yellow tassel pictured to the left makes me think of Easter dresses, and Easter eggs, and having an Easter egg hunt in the crisp morning air of a springtime day. I remember the Easter egg hunts of my childhood in New Mexico, always in the front yard (because most of the backyard was sand and the little plots of grass in the backyard were always living too much on the edge of dying from no water to be walked on) and the sky was clear and a brilliant blue. The air was actually damp, often, which was a treat in the dry desert air. We ran around, finding the eggs under bushes and lying in the grass. Once, an egg was hidden in the fork of the tree trunk. Only once, because it was too high for us to reach and my brother tried to shimmy up the trunk holding his Easter basket. My dad lifted the egg down, instead.
I hope this tassel brings back your Easter memories, too.
