Autumn officially arrived last week, although it still feels a lot like summer here during the day. It's also the second week of this year's Countdown to Christmas, hosted by Julie and Blu of Blue Morning Expressions on their blog, The Blu Print. It may seem like Christmas is a long way in the future, but it will be here before we know it!
For week two, twenty shops shared 60 wonderful handmade gift ideas in the weekend link-up. In addition to pinning each item to my Countdown to Christmas 2016 board on Pinterest during the week, I'm sharing one item from each shop in a weekly blog post. Here are this week's favorites.
Yellow and Orange Flower Lace Oval - Seasonal Crochet Art - RSS Designs In Fiber
Goofy Dog Rescue Earrings, Polymer Clay Frosted Black Lampwork Handmade Dangle Jewelry by Shadow Dog Designs
Great Spirit Lion Head Pendant Necklace, Hematite Gemstone Necklace With Copper Chain by TheSingingBeader on Etsy
There are quite a few fall events on the calendar before most of us will really begin our Christmas shopping. In October, apple picking, homecoming games, Halloween trick or treating are some of the activities that might have priority over Christmas preparations.
I'm still watching baseball every night because my favorite team is in the race for the wild card, hoping for a chance to play in the post season. So my favorite picks from this week's collection have mostly Fall themes and colors again.
