Spring makes you want to run outside and see everything new and colorful. It always feels like a new beginning to me. I love Spring. My favorite season.
Today, we feature Anne Koplik Jewelry.
Since 1981, Anne’s mission has been to create heirloom quality, vintage inspired jewelry to make women feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. Today she is still making magic in her Brewster, NY studio alongside her two daughters, Jill & Kara.
So many of her designs remind me of Spring. She uses such beautiful colors. I especially love the subject matter.
She has flowers:
Anne Koplik Flower Pendant Necklace Silver Plated with Swarovski Crystals
Anne Koplik Small Openwork Purple Butterfly Earrings with Swarovski Crystal
Anne Koplik Large Openwork Purple Butterfly Necklace Swarovski Crystal
Anne Koplik Swarovski Crystal Dragonfly Drop Earrings
Anne Koplik Turquoise Lavender Enamel Swarovski Crystal Dragonfly Necklace
Easter represents the potential for rebirth, salvation, and renewal of faith.
Easter is a “movable feast” and does not have a fixed date; however, it is always held on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25.
Specifically, Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the full Moon that occurs on or just after the spring equinox.
Interestingly, in 2019, the full Moon and the spring equinox fall on the SAME day—Wednesday, March 20. The full Moon—cresting at 9:43 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time—follows the spring equinox by less than four hours.
Christian Church calendars, the spring equinox was determined to always be fixed on March 21. (In reality, the equinox can happen on March 19, 20, or 21.)
Given this, the first full Moon after March 21 doesn’t occur until April 19 this year. That means … Easter will be celebrated on Sunday, April 21.
Everyone makes a New Years Resolution. Lose weight, eat better, go to the gym, manage your money… All good resolutions. However, by February, most resolutions have gone by way side. Then life gets in the way.
That being said, ilovethatgift.com has a suggested resolution, that everyone can and should stick with: BE KIND.
Today’s world there is too much hate being spewed out. Politics, gender, race… whatever. The reality is we are all human. Apply the Golden Rule.
Start with yourself. If you wouldn’t say it to someone else, don’t say it to yourself.
It is really not hard to treat others with kindness and respect.
