Board No. 105 - Falling Leaves

After a quick weekend trip to Ohio — where surpiringly fall has not hit at all — I am noticing that the trees are starting to change color here, a couple hundred miles south. Weird, right? So, I am finally going to do the post that my new Etsy friend and fellow CREST team member, aprilmist, gave me the idea for weeks ago (and she even picked some of my more favorite items). I know Etsy's been showcasing fall items up the wazoo (is that how it's spelled?), but I thought I'd throw my two cents in, so here's my favorite leaf creations:

Top row: The Best of Fall Throw Pillow from allisajacobs; Antique Brass Filigree Leaf Earrings from considerthelillies; Green Oak Leaf Felt Headband from lupin; Pair of Raspberry Espresso Cups from creativeutility
Second row: Gray Messenger Bag With Leaves from sineminugur ; Golden Leaf Necklace from loriyab; Sterling Silver Leaf Earrings With Copper Swarovski Pearls - Autumn Splendor from jayval; Out on a Limb Ginkgo from blockpartypress
Third row: Flora Flat from HydraHeart; Reversible Dress With Leaf Applique from allthenumbers; Harvest Goats Milk Soap from sissysoap; Wild Garden (kaleidoscopic) from yumiyumi
Bottom row: Autumn Hammock Earrings from lennonsleadinglady; Orange Autumn Maple Leaf Felt Earrings from hitree; Ophelia in Pearls Bracelet from wristcandycreations; Two Leaves Necklace from AvenueC

P.S. If you haven't already noticed from previous posts, I'm a bit of a horticulture geek, and, as a bonus, I just found out today that I will be doing some marketing consulting work for the Maryland Home & Garden Information Center. You should check them out, they do some great work spreading the hort love!


  1. Such a gorgeous collection of leaves! Thanks so much for including me among all these wonderful autumn treasures. Those maple leaf soaps look so yummy... like maple candy!

  2. I want all of these because I LOVE LEAVES!!! :D Seriously, these are some fabulous picks. I'm in western mid-Michigan, and it's warmed up quite a bit here. We drove around the countryside this weekend and saw very little color change. I think I spotted a little scarlet once or twice...but that's it. (Oh, and I'm with WCC--I saw those leaf soaps and immediately thought "mmm, maple candy!")

    *off to peek at some of your choices*
