I've had a The Mamas and the Papas song stuck in my head for three days now, only my version goes something along the lines of:
All the leaves are green,
And the sky is unseasonably clear.
That's right, folks. Autumn in Central Texas. It's like deep summer almost anywhere else.
I think that's why I was so excited about this month's Etsy Beadweavers Challenge, Autumn Falling of Leaves. It looks as though this theme resonated with a lot of other people too, because we had a record number of 59 entries this time, and if this collection does not make you want to want to run out and pick apples and carve pumpkins while wearing the entire L.L. Bean catalog, you're just seasonally dead inside. There is some really STUNNING work here and, if you haven't, I encourage you to hop on over and vote for your favorite.
