When a friend of mine, Rita of Jewel School Friends, was having a blog hop to celebrate Autumn I just couldn't resist. Now I live here in the Puget Sound region of Washington state and we have mainly pine trees so I can't show you the beautiful colors of this season so instead I decided to show you a bit of what it means to me.
First comes first, I am a boot addict. A lot of women have hoards of shoes, for me instead it is boots. I would have hoards but they take up much more space then shoes so I only have ten pairs (so far). And this is the season when I get to bring them out as well as my sweaters.
I also get to decorate my altar for autumn. This isn't the sharpest pic and I do apologize for that. It protects itself and for the life of me, I couldn't get a better one.
This is also the time of year where things quiet down. I find that I spend more time reading a book or spending time in my studio. If there is one stone that bring together the colors of the season it would have to be unikite. I wire wrapped some of it together with brass wire and a brass focal to create a lanyard for my e-cigarette.
Since I do tend to wear a lot of greens this season, I also made these earrings to wear using a dyed agate along with copper findings.
And last for but not least is a necklace I made using polymer beads from Tree Wings Studio and a boro glass focal from an unknown artist.
So what does this time of the year mean to you? Do you love all the festivities that are about to start or is this your time of the year to hibernate? Well now that you have had a chance to check out my thoughts be sure to click on the links below to see what these wonderful people love about this season.
