The frigid weather the North East has been experiencing this past week has got me dreaming of and wishing for the warmer days ahead. Sadly for us, I don’t see hope of that for another two months or so. Therefore, all we can really do is bundle up and try our hardest to stay warm and cozy, right? In my quest to stay warm (especially during utterly freezing commutes to and from work) I’ve scoured Etsy to find cozy items created by makers from PA and I’ve shared a few of them with you below (and above!). For more info on each maker, and a link to their Etsy page, just click on the image.Amy Pulliam, a self-taught jewelry artisan and the designer behind Helen Ethel Studio, was raised in the fresh country air and woodlands of central Pennsylvania but later moved to Philadelphia to pursue her studies in Art History.
