Today is March third. 3/3/2011. In celebration of the number three, I have collected some of my favorite etsy finds that use the number as a central motif.

Culturally and historically the number three has had great significance. In sacred geometry the third numeral has been interpreted as thus:

The holiest of all numbers, it is still a part of our unconscious thinking. The triangle, the habitual use of threes in listing things, even the classic comic technique of repeating something 3 times, with the 3rd repetition altered slightly to make the punch line. In religion, the highest deities are in threes: Babylon had Anu, Bel and Ena; India had Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva; Greco-Roman Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, and the Christian Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

So, whether you hold the number 3 in your heart as a sacred number or you just like the way it looks on a pillow, your wall, or around your neck; I present to you …the number 3.
