Simple right? So let's learn about the entries!
Entry #1 Chocolate Chestnut Torte Vintage Fabric Bib
Our first entry comes from Rikrak. She has submitted the Chocolate Chestnut Torte Vintage Fabric Bib as her entry. This quilt bib features patchwork of fabulous browns & beiges, with a wonderful retro showcase print with pinecones, forest leaves and other fabulous vintage woodland goodies! It would look adorable on baby when the family gathers for Thanksgiving.
Entry #2 Autumn Joy Rebound Journal
Autumn often inspires thoughts of poetry and an urge to sketch. This entry comes to us from Prairie Peasant. The Autumn Joy Rebound Journal is made from a re-purposed vintage book. The inside is filled with a generous 160 pages (counting both sides), of various reclaimed papers, all blank on one side. Each section of pages is wrapped with a colourful fall image from a gently used calendar.
Entry #3 Mountain Ash Earrings
These beautiful earrings were submitted by Wild Woman Jewelry. The Mountain Ash Earrings are coral red, cinnamon, and pale ivory green in colour to represent the colors of the berries from green to ripe and juicy. They are made from vintage lucite beads stacked on oxidized sterling silver, mixed with vintage lucite leaves and suspended from pretty kidney shaped gunmetal ear wires.
Entry #4 Autumn Handbound Leather Journal
This gorgeous fall themed journal was submitted by La Paperie. The Autumn Handbound Leather Journal is made from beautiful chestnut cowhide, with a wrap around flap. It is hand-engraved (using a burning tool) with an oak leaf and acorn. A brown leather cord wraps around the journal, keeping the book securely closed. 320 blank pages are available to collect your thoughts.
Entry #5 Fall Glory OOAK Charm Necklace
RJ Charms has submitted this one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. The Fall Glory Charm Necklace features an upcycled goldtone leaf, a copper leaf charm, a ceramic flower, a copper filigree bead, and an 18k gold plated chain with lobster style clasp. What a perfect way to compliment a fall outfit!
Entry #6 Fine Silver Earrings with Leaf Texture
Looking out a window through some leafy fall branches inspired the pattern on these earrings. The Fine Silver Earrings with Leaf Texture from Enthral Designs feature a random leaf pattern. The charms on the earrings are entirely handmade and the sterling ear wires are hand formed as well.
Entry #7 Autumn Mother Nature Pendant
This artful piece of jewelry was created by My Belle Bijoux. The Autumn Mother Nature Pendant is wood burned and hand painted. It has a protective resin coating, and hangs from a 16 inch brown velour cord. The reds, yellows and browns are perfect for fall!
Entry #8 The Autumn Tree of Life
This entry also comes to us from My Belle Bijoux. The Autumn Tree of Life features antique brass art wire, gemstones, mother of pearl and glass beads all in shades of fall. It hangs on a 16" matching link chain.
Entry #9 Swirlpool: Lampwork Borosilicate Heart
Intuibead has created this beautiful Lampwork Heart Pendant called Swirlpool. A mixture of reds, black, and ivory swirl joyously around the lobes of this pretty heart. The heart measures just over 2 inches long from top of the loop to the tip and just over 1 inch in diameter.
Entry #10 Changing Tides Pocket Scarf
With the changing season, there's a chill out there and Off the Hooks has created a scarf to keep you warm in the brisk fall air. The Changing Tides Pocket Scarf is made with a luxurious, thick blend of wool, acrylic and rayon in very unique color combination reminiscent of the sea. The scarf changes color from a sea foam green, to sandy brown, to misty blue.
Entry #11 Celebrating Autumn Journal
There isn't anything more representative of a Canadian Fall than a red Maple Leaf! My Handbound Books has created the Celebrating Autumn Journal using a real leaf, some birch bark, and marbled paper. The 192 pages of cream coloured, unlined paper are bound inside this lovely cover and tied with a beautiful ribbon.
Entry #12 Pumpkin Spice Goat Milk Soap
Pumpkins and spice go together like strawberries and cream. This wonderfully scented Pumpkin Spice Goat Milk Soap has been submitted by Carvel Country Soaps. It's dark, creamy and rich, with notes of cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg; this is the quintessential fall fragrance.
Entry #13 Autumn Marbled Paper
Splashes of oranges, yellows, creams and browns swirl and mix on this entry from My Marbled Papers. The Autumn Leaves Hand Marbled Paper is made by floating acrylic marbling paints on a carrageenan base. The colours can be controlled and manipulated to form complex patterns. Every sheet is different as only one sheet can be made each time.
