Autumn is in the Air - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - September 16, 2015

Autumn is definitely in the air here in El Paso.  Even though the temperatures are still rising into the low 90's during the day, the nights are cooling off beautifully.  Seamus spends more time chasing lizards and dogging around in the back yard instead of seeking shade as soon as he goes out.  I'm having to fill the hummingbird feeder continuously as the flying gems gorge on the energizing sugar water before making their long flight to Central America.  The big sky is an intense blue, the wild sunflowers are blooming down in the arroyo . . . life is definitely good!

To celebrate the start of the change of fall season, I decided this week's "Wonderful Handmade Wednesday" post will welcome autumn, my favorite time of the year.  The handmade items chosen not only represent the colors of autumn, but also things you might need:  a soul satisfying hot cup of coffee or tissues for those sneezes.  I hope you enjoy these picks:

Wonderful picks for fall!

Amazing picks! Have pinned to my Fall Inspiration board


Thank you, Emma!

What a wonderful surprise, Emma! Thank you for the kind pins of these items. Am assuming you saw my tweet - boy, you were fast getting here. Your rpomo is greatly appreciated by all. Thanks again.

I love Fall

...and you have picked a great selection of handmade goodies to celebrate the season. My nose was running this morning as I walked the mutt - could have used SewAmazin' s little tissue holder or JazzitUpwithDesignsbyNancy's gorgeous shawl. Guess I'll just sip my tea now and drool over these russet beauties. Thank you for choosing something from my shop.

Thank you, Pamela!

Love how you got so many of the items into your post, Pamela - very clever! My pleasure for including your beauties. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

Gorgeous selection of fall

Gorgeous selection of fall fashion items, will share!

Thank you, Diane!

Appreciate you stopping by and commenting, Diane. Thank you!

Warming colors for a cool season

What fabulous picks here! These warm autumn colors are so appealing right now. Thank you so much Catherine, for including my clip on earrings! I have pinned all of these great fall finds!

Thank you, Jo!

Aren't those colors so appealing, Jo? I bet he trees are beginning to start their turn where you are. I miss the fall foliage there in VA and WV. Many thanks for the promo.

Autumn is truly my favorite

Autumn is truly my favorite color scheme.. Wonderful picks! Thank you so much for including my wrap. Promoted items.

Thank you, Nancy!

Yes, the colors of autumn are truly spectacular, Nancy. Thank you for all your promotion!

Love the Choices!

Love your choices here, Catherine! Am sharing around via your links at G+. :) Autumn in El Paso sounds wonderful, especially the hummies! (Or maybe I should say "pre_autumn.")

Thank you, Mary and Le Gonze!

Autumn here is the best, Mary and Le Gonze, although I do miss the glorious changing of the leaves. There are a few cottonwoods near the Rio Grande that get a blazing yellow color. But since most of the trees here are evergreens, we don't get much tree color. But the days and nights are fabulous long into when most people are already getting snow (: Many thanks for all your sharing. Le Moosie sends treats to Le Gonze.


Love all of the beautiful items you featured here in your post Catherine! Will share.

Thank you, Sharon!

Appreciate your kind comment and you sharing the post, Sharon!

Lovely fall selections!

Lovely fall selections!

Thank you, Cathy!

Awesome Autumn Assortment!

I especially love this week's collection. The autumn colors are so rich and wonderful. I just can't tell you how much I appreciate your support of artisan work, including mine. You rock, my friend! I'll be sharing this.

Thank you, Linda!

Autumn is such a rich and wonderful time, Linda, but bittersweet as well. Thank you for the promo!

Great picks for Autumn

Great picks for Autumn season!

Thank you so much, Natalie!

Thank you so much, Natalie!

Ready for Fall

So ready for fall, and these lovely selections make me long for turning leaves and crisp air. Might have to head up the Appalachian Mountains for those goodies. Hope Seamus enjoys his extra, frisky bursts of energy!

Thank you, Julie and Blu!

If you do head up to the Appalachians, Julie, I hope you take Blu (: Autumn is such a glorious time there. I remember sitting on top of Big Tom Mountain near Mt. Mitchell and just seeing for miles and miles and miles all the amazing leaf colors - a carpet of blazing fall colors. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

Autumn Celebration!

The best season of the year here in the Great Valley of California. Cool and dry with that gentle ocean breeze sweeping up the Valley from the bay. The leafy collection of autumn colors sets just the right tone for an autumnal wardrobe. I have my brown orange and white batik skirt topped off with a regular long sleeved knit sweater and a scarf I made from a piece of silk sari that I dyed to match the red-orange in the skirt all laid out for my next outing. Not quite cool enough for my brown boots, so will wear a pair of casual tan flats.

Never get enough of Autumn!

Sharing now...

Thank you, Anna!

I can just imagine you in your wonderful autumn outfit, Anna! I hope this autumn is just as wonderful . . . and that El Nino sends some rain your way. Thank you for stopping by, commenting and sharing.

A great selection!

Thank you Catherine for putting together this great selection to bring in the Autumn season. Thank you also for including my Whole Latte Love card. We had a hint of Autumn last week with the rain, but we're back to the high 90s again today!

Lisa :)

Thank you, Lisa!

Hope you get more than a hint of Autumn soon, Lisa! My pleasure to include your card.

Lovely Autumn!

Just Splendid Autumn items Catherine!!!!

I Love this and the crisp Autumn Air!!!!
Thank You for including my Wreath!

Thank you, Michele!

Bring on the crisp Autumn air, Michele! Glad to include your wreath. Many thanks for stopping by and commenting.
