Next to a sunny summer's day at the seashore, nothing is quite as memorable to me as snow on the beach. This rare phenomenon is a sight to behold -- and not long ago the Pacific Northwest U.S. experienced a storm that some called "Snowpocolypse 2012". The Seattle area got about two feet of snow and our area of the island got about half that much -- the photo opportunities were plentiful!

This pillow is my tribute to Snowpocolypse, based on a microscopic photo of a single perfect snowflake. All snowflakes are six-sided and are comprised of individual crystals that are also six-sided. The rumor that no two snowflakes are identical is more than a rumor; it is actually true, as closely as can be determined.

The indoor-outdoor pillow measures 20" x 20" and features a removable fiberfill insert for ease of laundering. The handpainted design is applied using nontoxic permanent textile paints that will not fade, peel, crack or flake. Also available in a lumbar (rectangular) shape elsewhere in this shop (see last photo).

Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by a snow-loving beachgirl who relishes the opportunity to wear her vintage goathair apres-ski boots at the first sign of flakes. Let it snow!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
