October Fest Blog Hop

Tolec Jewels is hosting a October Fest blog hop. 

Tolec Jewels wanted to celebrate Autumn in all its splendor and glory.  She asked that participants create just about anything (did not have to be just jewelry) to celebrate Autumn!   I love the change of seasons and I did celebrate Autumn.  

I made a fall inspired leaf necklace. The center part is cubic right angle weave and then I added the leaves and Czech beads.  I used some beautiful jasper roundel beads, two beads I enameled and copper chain.  I really like the way this necklace turned out.

I did some chocolate candy molds.  I do these for just about all of the holidays. 

 Chocolate covered Oreos!  Oh so delicious!  Even though some of my chocolate went into the outer cavities.


My Sister and I carved pumpkins with my 5 year old Jacob. 

This was the first time I let Jacob carve alone, he was soooo excited!

We roasted the pumpkin seeds.  This was a first for me and they were good, taste like popcorn.

My boys at Crooked Pines Farm.

Please visit the other participants and see the way they celebrate Autumn.

And last but certainly not least.....
