Â Â Â Â Thursday, September 23 marks the Autumn Equinox for this calander year. EquinoxÂ is derived from theÂ Latin words “aequus”Â and “nox” meaningÂ “equalÂ night” which describes the balance of light and dark hours within thisÂ time.Â Â In many traditions, this means aÂ day for celebrating the harvest and many cultures have festivals to mark the event.Â So, for this week’s Themed Nominations, we will be celebrating the Autumn Equinox by highlighting team members who have items relating to Autumn, harvest, time, balanceÂ and the solar system.
The Marimekko picnic blanket above was made by team member Sewn Natural and reminds me of harvest time with it’s lovely apple, berry and flower motif.
You can do a tag search on Etsy for â€˜teamecoetsy’ to find an item or items you’d like to nominate and please send your nominations via Etsy convo to Gillian at Mon Ami Vie. The deadline is 2PM EST on Wednesday.
Winners will be chosen based on:
1. Picture Quality
2. Appropriateness to the Theme
Thanks so much and Happy Harvest!
