The Third Annual Autumn Splendor Blog Hop 2014- Octoberfest!

Hosted by our ♥ hostess ♥ Rita - Jewel School Friends.
I admire her energy and Woman Power. She makes me smile very often
because of what she writes... and because of what she's designing
and creating, lovely pieces! What a great artist.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
October is a special month, full of great and different colours…
 
Butterfly in September
 
We said goodbye to Summer and are surrounded now by beautiful
'browns,
yellows, orangs and purples.
 
Chrysanthemums and Paper Roses (made by me) on my table
 
The autumn colours 'make me think of heather, chrysanthemums and pumpkin(soup).
And red cabbage, with apples, delicious winter food!
 
Hosta leaves in October
 
In all the pictures here, you find the colours in and around our house...
 
Sunset, 2 weeks ago
 
The orange –pumpkin- colour was almost every year always my autumn favourite.
This year it’s different, it is purple! 
 
Is'n it a beauty?
 
The beautiful purple plant on our balcony table inspired me to design and
create my necklace.
 
 
I made the glass beads, some are a bit ‘salty’,
I love that beautiful grey-ish colour…  The other beads are Jasper and Amethyst.
 
 
Purple is thought as a royal colour, so the name of the necklace is Eleanor.
 
Who was Eleanor? Look here! to meet her...
