Falling for the season......................

by Staci L. Smith

Living in the Eastern US, we get a colorful, cool and crisp fall (though its always too short for my liking).  The air is still warm in the day, and chilly at night.  Some days, the clouds block the sun, and you need to wear a sweatshirt with your shorts.  Its the time of year to layer clothes, smell wood stoves firing up for the season, sit around campfires with friends, jump in leaf piles, smell crisp fresh air, hear leaves crunch as you walk, and indulge all five senses in the wonder of Fall!

So, I would like to honor this season with some etsy favorites.  I threw some cool "color" beads in there to keep with the color portion of this months Art Spark- but mostly, its all the things I love about fall, like pumpkins and Halloween.  Halloween has always been a time when I could dress up and be anyone I wanted to!  And if you lived inside my head (be glad you don't) you'd see there are a millions things I dream of being!  I have also been a fan of the Grateful Dead since my young teen years, and so, the sugar skulls remind me of all the fun I had learning about life in that scene, as well as bringing a little Macabre to this month.  OH- and lets not forget babies in pumkin hats- all my kids were fall babies, so, I just melt over these little cuties.  So without further ado, a little trip through my brain in this most favorite season of mine~ handmade style.  (click the pics to go to the listing)

Enjoy!

Enjoy!!!!
















I am curious what fall is like where you live?  Do you have any favorite fall traditions????

Love seeing that assortment of pictures altogether! Hey! I was a fan of the Grateful Dead too.... The last time I saw them in concert was when I was in my early 20's and a group of teens were sitting in front of us with Boone's Farm Wine.... It turned out to be not so pretty!!! LOL.... I knew my wild concert days were over that night :o)
