The Autumn Wind is a Pirate - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade



Since I live in the Desert Southwest, autumn comes creeping slowly in with cooler temperatures.  Most of the trees here are evergreen so there isn’t much color change.  This time of the year, I always think about the forest we lived in for 10 years in Northern Virginia.  Oh, the glorious colors as the leaves on the trees changed.!!!  Sometimes almost blinding color combinations.  Then sometimes, the wind would hit and the leaves became a carpet of color on the forest floor.  I ran across this great quote about autumn wind from Steve Sabol:  “The autumn wind is a pirate. Blustering in from sea with a rollicking song he sweeps along swaggering boisterously. His face is weather beaten, he wears a hooded sash with a silver hat about his head . . . The autumn wind is a raider, pillaging just for fun.”  A pillaging wind playing with and swirling the colorful leaves!


I hope the handmade items from Indiemade artist friends shared here sing that rollicking autumn song to you as you browse through these beautiful choices:

Great image

and it just happened here. The aspen trees were in their full golden glory, then two days of marauding pirate wind and now the trees are bare! Thanks for sharing and for including my earring in your Wednesday finds.

Autumn Wind

Catherine, thank you for including our Pumpkin Patch Dog Bandana in this week's blog post. Our leaves have just begun to turn color here in northern NJ, it will be a few weeks before our trees are bare. Great picks, have pinned all and sharing the post. Happy fall sales to all!

Love this one!

All items have been tweeted and pinned and the post too.

Thank you Catherine!


Love Autumn

Wish we had autumn all year long!!! Lovely choices and a great theme for a blog. Thank you so much for including my necklace, Catherine!


Autumn Pirate

I love that quote! Thank you for including my ceramic leaf pendant!

Lovely PIcks!

Fantastic picks, Catherine! We can get some glorious autumns here in southeastern New England, but with the kind of summer we just had - little rain and higher-than-average temps - we're not likely to get intense or varied colors. When I lived in Nevada, I loved the turning of the aspens in the Sierra Nevada - brilliant yellow against the green flanks of fir trees. I think autumn is a great season no matter where you live. :)
