Autumn Artisan Handmade Gift Ideas - Three for Thursday



According to the calendar, we're about ½ way through autumn, the favorite time of year for many people.  I live in the Desert Southwest and most people don’t associate the desert with fall color. But we have it!  Granted not as eye catching as the forests in along the East Coast or the aspens in many places in the Rockies.  Color is here, nonetheless: glowing yellows and reds and purples of the deciduous trees.  And my amazing cosmos are looming up a storm with carmine reds, pale pinks and glowing white.  The hummingbirds left about a month ago (always sad to see them go) but new migrant birds are showing up, especially the cheerful little juncos.  Am waiting for the beautiful blue scrub jays with their raucous calls and jaunty attitudes to show up under the bird feeders.


Aaaaahhhhh . . . autumn.  A bittersweet time of the year.  And to celebrate autumn, I decided to share autumn colored items from three handmade artists.  The artists are: Mary of PrettyGonzo; Pamela of MagdaleneKnits; and me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  I hope you enjoy these fall filled beauties. And maybe you’ll do some early Christmas shopping??? Hint. Hint.
