feels like fall

Suddenly it feels like fall. The sunlight is different. Last week, for the first time in many months, we had a few days that were actually cooler outside than inside. We still have some hot days left, and maybe a few more thunderstorms, but for the most part summer and monsoon season are giving way to autumn. Ah, my favorite time of year! But here, almost any time of year could be my favorite.

Speaking of fall, I have some fall leaves jewelry in my Etsy shop. I love working with the images of real leaves I collected when we lived in Oregon. I often pair the silver with fall-color crystals or natural stone beads, as seen in the examples here.
