Spring fashion 2010 meets Greek Independence Day

Hello dear readers! You may wonder why I chose to write about fashion in this article, which is supposed to be about the upcoming Greek Independence Day. Well, when I first saw the new color palette in fashion for spring 2010, I thought, ‘Hey, they have to be kidding!’ It was like someone had suddenly painted everything blue; other spring colors were certainly there too, but blue was so dominantly all over the place! It could be pure coincidence, of course… But whether it is turquoise-ish, amparo blue, royal blue, sapphire or cobalt, it certainly looks like the color mostly prized by Greeks, so much that it’s dominant in the Greek flag, is currently extremely fashionable!

So… what better way for the Etsy Greek Team to celebrate our Independence Day (March 25), than give you all an idea of blue handmade creations from our crafty members?

To start with, here’s a very original design in this Blue Pepper Cuff from SweetLeeda.

An amazing art print comes next, from artist GogoKorogiannou. I have loved it from the first moment I saw it! Relief is unbelievably expressive and emotional without being sentimental, it is simply amazing.

Want something cute? The mermaid from ERGANIweaving is definitely what you’re looking for!

Have you seen these square papier mache earrings - blue and silver? Papier mache is one of my favorite materials too, and theprincessnextdoor is a real artist!

Or, maybe you’re hiding a beadaholic in that artistic soul of yours, in which case I would strongly recommend these; they are the most incredible shade of blue! Bead glass, trasparent blue 9mm. Pkg of 15 from isminiSupplies.

How about a wonderful Cerulean blue nuno felt scarf, from creationsbyeve? It will definitely keep you warm on those cool spring days or summer nights.

This very artistic ring is also one of my favorites: Neptune from Evrydiki. A modern classic!!!

Feeling like knitting something? This lovely yarn will help cure your passion… Horizon, Superwash sock yarn from mynameisyarn.

Perhaps looking for cards? Try these 5 Postcards BLUE TREE TRIO from ahueofduckeggblue. They are so cool!

Go blue this spring, with Turquoise Branches Earrings from mariastudio. I just love the design, so wonderfully organic!

And what better way to bring nature into your home than using these as decorations? 6 Natural Seed pods with Ocean Blue felted wool from woolicious.

Or, maybe it's time for a new bag! You know you can always have Aella in stonewashed Striped Jean FREE SHIPPING, from milloo.

And this style brings us to these mistyaurora classics: Cute Navy and White Check Tartan Earring Studs EtsyFreeShipping, which I think are a must!

Finally, I couldn't leave out this Art Print Greece from InspirationsbyStella, as it is so gloriously Greek!

And if you can’t get enough of this magnificent blue, don’t worry. We, in the Greek Team, understand what a wonderfully intoxicating color it is… So we are inviting you to dive into this celebration of true blue and join us all in this feast of sweet and wonderful freedom! Happy Independence Day, Greece!!!
