Ready for Fall!

It's been a crazy summer, and it flew by. My son is settled in at college, and this month I've been inspired to start making jewelry again. Making I can do; photographing...not so much. I always seem to get frustrated with my photos. I'm too picky. I did get some new listings in my Etsy shop, and hopefully I can get more listed soon. Meanwhile, we are getting cold nights here in Ohio, and the leaves are falling already. It's been hard getting all my summer garden decorations put away. At first, I didn't want to admit that fall was here. As I packed up my "summer stuff," though, I started getting excited about hauling all my fall decor out and setting up my big front porch for Halloween! I LOVE Halloween, maybe because I'm an October baby myself. Speaking of babies, my beagle, Flash, seems to find the cooler weather much to his liking! He wants longer walks than he did when we had 90 degree temps, and I must agree that it is more pleasant to walk him when we both aren't panting! My Etsy Beagles team is getting ready for our fall challenge, and our theme is "Halloween Treats." We will be holding our blog giveaway (see the Etsy Beagles link on the sidebar to view our Beagles Team blog) Oct. 13th-16th, and one of our team members will be donating the prize again.
