Experimenting with my Hand Saw
 So, I've been playing with my hand saw experimenting with cutting designs on the interior of metal pieces.  When developing new processes and techniques, I tend to default to some of my reliable faves for other aspects of the designs and for these earrings I've cut whimsical freehand hearts - I love heart shapes! I've also repeated the enameling in gorgeous robin's egg but embellished the color with a sprinkling of orient red, a pretty complementary contrast!
While creating these earrings, I could also see future designs featuring the concave side of my little domed discs, perhaps with some hammering for texture and finishing with oxidization rather than enameling...
If you're keen, these are available in the shop today! Just click on the photos for the link.
Hope the sun is out where you are ~ xo

An Autumn Weekend

Autumn is in full swing around here - vibrant color, falling leaves, perfect pumpkins and a delicious Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends! And the weather has been fabulous - sunny, fresh and wonderful for outdoor activity. Here is a round up of some of the highlights of our gorgeous October holiday weekend! I was sitting having my coffee when these two yellow maple leaves drifted down and settled on this pretty rusty mum on our back step - so lovely!
There are still lots of gloriously hued leaves on our maples and oaks but they are
beginning to fall and swirl about the yard. 
Ethel is beside herself romping in them
 and chasing them as the breeze flutters them around the lawn.
I love to set a table and special occasions are a wonderful chance to show guests how happy I am to have them join us.  And then I love to take photos of it! Here are a few from Thanksgiving dinner.
We are going to be away for Christmas this year so my niece and I decided to combine holiday dinners this weekend - we celebrated 'Chris-giving' or was it 'Thank-mas'... there were 12 for dinner and we were so glad to have everyone there!

A smattering of gold stars and a few sparkly ornaments in orange and purple celebrated autumn
with just a hint of Christmas. On Saturday morning, Sophie, her best friend and I set up shop to create sweet felted acorn ornaments, also in orange, purple and red, to dangle from the branches in the centerpiece.

'The girls' helping to arrange the table.

Saturday night's dessert was these yummy rice crispie squares pumpkins (found on Pinterest).  We used food coloring to 'orange' them up and fondue chocolate for their stems.

There's a turkey in that there pot!!!
 We tried a couple of times to deep fry a turkey - and have always ended up putting it in the oven.  It's hard to properly cook it all the way through this way.  Hubs and my brother-in-law were determined and it was a resounding success! perfectly delicious (and we had a back up on the BBQ rotisserie, just in case :).
Happy October!
