FALL Autumn Halloween Changing Leaves Empty Birdhouses

I feel like I have been in Florida for a year now, but it has only been 4 months.  Not even sure where summer went, but now it is offically Fall.  I have seen some trees turning in color, but mostly we stay pretty green all year.  I did see a sweet bluebird flittering around the back yard, and wondered if my birdhouses in Tennessee are all empty now, and everyone gathering up to snuggle in for cooler weather or headed out in their migration pattern.  I love birds. 

Tonight as I was winding down from a full day, I began playing with some bronze wire and blue beads, and created these two bird nests.  They fit perfectly on these filigree based bobby pins.  So sweet. You'll find these in my etsy shop.

The Skeleton Key Altered Repurposed Assemblage Necklace

This morning the air is so much cooler, so no excuse not to go outside and get some photographs done of some of my creations today.  I love old skeleton keys, and keep them on an old circular wire, tucked away in an old field desk from the Civil War Era.  A little hiding spot just for me. 

One of these Victorian relics has now been embellished with a piece of vintage olive green crinkley seam binding ribbon, vintage filigree brass and an old teal flower cabachon.  A sweet vintage inspired necklace.  A generous amount of ribbon, so you can tie it to the length you would like. 

The key measures 3 inches long, and this vintage assemblage can be worn with casual as well as dressy clothes.  You'll find it in my Etsy shop:

Now, to go enjoy more of that little nip of Fall in the air.
