Everytime I take the decision to showcase & offer a product, it has to mean something to me, like our Spring Blooming handmade earrings!
My friends know my favourite flowers are tulips! My love started back in Florida in the late 90s but fully developed in Canada. I learned how to plant them, how to protect them from squarrels and other nice little creatures with highly digging skills! - trying to be polite here, eh!-
Love them because the colors, their fragility and, their resilience.
However, it was until couple months ago that my friend Harold at our weekly Toastmaster meeting, gave me the ultimate reason to fall in love with them. The story of how they got to Canada, as a thank you gift from Netherlands!
Back in 1945, the dutch family sent 100,000 bulbs to Canada in gratitude for its role during the WWII, including protecting the future queen Juliana.
Therefore, Canadian tulips are the symbol of long lasting friendship and Gratitude!
Enough inspiration for these earrings, eh?
Wish you love them as much I do!
