Friday Faves 31 - Autumn



I love Autumn. The weather is milder and so pleasant here in Florida and those little cool snaps that we get are simply heavenly. Summer has its perks, like fireworks and hanging out at the beach and lighter clothing just to name a few. But for my money -- I'll take me some Autumn, please. Thank you very much!

I love the theme of Autumn, turning leaves, pumpkins (I adore pumpkins!) and that first fire in the fireplace. Gorgeous, lovely and toasty. M'm!

So with all of the wonderful things that Autumn brings, let's begin with a little tune from Smashing Pumpkins (O, you knew I had to go there) called Tonight, Tonight:

(Sorry about the commercial. I wanted a really good version of this.)

I know. What does that song really have to do with this week's theme, right? Well, as you point your browser in the direction of our first Autumn Etsy shop, you'll see. You'll see. ;-)

Now, let's go shopping!

Autumn Shop Number 1
Shop name: Sunshine and Ravioli
http://www.etsy.com/shop/SunshineandRavioli?ref=seller_info

Okay. Number one, this is just a cute name for a shop. I don't even know why. I haven't delved that deeply. I just know that I like it. And, I like this! Aren't they pretty? What a great idea! I also have to say it's a very nicely done picture. I especially love the alarm clock. Nice touch!

Autumn Shop Number 2
Shop name: Love Naturally

And what could be sweeter for an Autumn wedding than a Honey Tree painted just for you and your -- uh -- honey! I fell in love with this the moment I saw it.

Autumn Shop Number 3
Shop name: Kirahley Kreations
http://www.etsy.com/shop/KirahleyKreations?ref=seller_info

As you already know -- I love pumpkins! So here we have a lovely little pumpkin that can be used for a ring bearer or for the flower girl, even for wedding decor for that matter. I love that it can be coordinated with your wedding theme colors as well. Awesome!

(O, and I love the 'K'. Cute!)

Autumn Shop Number 4
Shop name: Romantic Threads
http://www.etsy.com/shop/RomanticThreads?ref=seller_info

THE GOWN! Well, for my taste anyway. Just look at it. Take it all in. Yes, it truly is gorgeous. I love the see-thru drop sleeves, and coupled with a few touches of Autumny colors, like in a head wreath or in jewelry it would go very nicely with a Fall or Harvest wedding theme.

Autumn Shop Number 5
Shop name: A'Glitter
http://www.etsy.com/shop/scahoon?ref=seller_info

Oops! Almost forgot about the ring! But you can't get away from this one, and talk about delicate and so unique! I love this ring! Love. It. Alas, my finger is a size 6. But I think it's perfect for an Autumn-themed wedding (or any themed wedding). Yes, I do.

Well, I snuck in an Autumn Wedding Theme on ya, didn't I? Bet ya didn't expect that one! I just think it is one of the nicest times of the year to get married, though Winter's not bad either. ;-)

You just never know what's going to show up on my blog. Heck, sometimes even I don't know what's going to show up on it. So be sure to drop by next week when the theme will be (drum roll) Thanksgiving Party Planning. That's right, we're going to see what Etsy can cook up for us for an American Thanksgiving celebration. After all, it's not that far away now and we have lots of planning to do to be ready in time.

Until then, have a great weekend everyone and take care out there!
