What an Autumn in Oregon!

Okay, so the weather here in Portland has become cold and soupy. But, WOW, did we have some picture-perfect stretches in recent weeks! The fall colors combined with crystal-slear skies and highs in the 60's created scenes like the one above. Now, if only we could figure out a way to make it last. . . Have a feeling we'll be gazing at this photo longfully in the coming few months. . .

Etsy artist of the day:

Today we visit UK jewelry artist Laura, who resides in Loughborough, in the Midlands. Not surprisingly, her Etsy shop is aptly named Lauras Jewellery. Laura describes her shop as "The home of Kitsch and Unique". As you can see from the brooches shown above, it would be worth your time to drop by Laura's shop and look around!

Thanks for supporting Etsy artists and buying hand-made!
