Sunday Clippings

Sunday Clippings


DSC_0392 We may have passed the first day of spring here in eastern US, but the usual emblems of spring are late this year. This week's clippings are largely environmental and fashionable - opposite spheres of conservation and consumption! There are a healthy sprinkling of art pieces as well. Spring fever must been causing a font of creativity to emerge as we gradually shift from being indoors to outdoors. Enjoy the diverse selection this weekend!
