Ah, October

With the coming of October, Autumn seems to really have a arrived at last. I love the crisp feel in the air, the tangy scent of fallen leaves, the bright colors of the trees in contrast to the muted colors of the dying grasses and purple mists. I think this is the time of year I actually feel the most alive...not to mention I look SO much better in cold weather clothes! ;)

"The scarlet of maples can shake me like a cry
Of bugles going by.
And my lonely spirit thrills
to see the frosty asters like smoke
upon the hills."

- William Bliss Carman

So I've been making autumny things lately. I made a few dolls like this fall berry pixie...

...and then I felt the need to work in my recycled sweater wools so I made a few wallets. I love this leaf one!

Then I made a few non autumn others, like this flower one (which was supposed to be a very simple flower shape but the thread kind of took over and became a vine and then there were leaves and beads and...well...you know how that is....)

but I'm waiting on some new tags before I add any more than these two to the shop. I love my new tags! I'll post some pictures with them next time. And I leave you with this...

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

  1. Oh how I love to see your beautiful creations! I love absolutely adore your dolls...I think it's because they remind me of the Gelfing's from the Dark Crystal-I love that film! If there were a movie just about them and their lives, I think you should be the creator :D

    Tell Max that Auntie Scumbag hasn't forgotten his birthday - it's just hard to get Uncle Grumpy to remember to write out the check! I'd say interest IS accruing, though...!
