Be inspired by the beauty of autumn!

Vintage Swarovski Tourmaline Beads

Oh, I love the fall in New England! Brilliant foliage, apple picking, pumpkin carving and boldly colored chrysanthemums. Just taking a deep breath of the cool air and feel the sunshine on your face is transforming to me. It makes me stop and appreciate the little things in life, and the beauty all around me.

Here's my favorite fall scenario: Wearing a warm fuzzy fleece and taking a ride in the convertible with my hubby. Top down, and headed for sightseeing and antiquing or apple picking in our favorite orchard. We’ve even been known to put the heat on with the top down. It makes you feel alive! Or, we grab our college aged daughter and pile in the SUV and go exploring. I am legendary about 'splorin. You know who you   are.....nuff said :)

I'm teaching myself to live in the moment and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Running our dog around, hunting for new vintage treasures with my daughter, making Sunday supper for a weekly visit with my son, and every moment I spend with my husband, who after 27 years is still the love of my life. Not to mention he still gives me tingles when he hugs me.......but that's a whole different

So, grab some beads and make something to celebrate fall! The colors are awesome to design with and the combinations are endless. Most of all, have fun!!!!
