Oaks, acorns and leaves

"The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.” - James Allen

 "The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus

Trees are the best monuments that a man can erect to his own memory.
They speak his praises without flattery, and they are
blessings to children yet unborn.
- Lord Orrery, 1749

It's been an autumn inspired week as I whipped up some new creations.

I would love to walk in a forest,
Feel a crisp chill in the air,
listen as leaves crunch beneath my feat...

You can find these lovely bits in my Etsy shop.
I mentioned a contest - I'm still working out the details - check back on Monday.

Happy Creating!

Oh.My.Goodness. I am all a-squee over these, Heather! I love those leaf ones and the sweet little acorn charms look like a drawing. So sweet and perfect for the season!
Enjoy the day!

Heather I love your fall creations. The acorns and leaves... and the color scheme is gorgeous!

All we need now is a fresh-baked apple pie and it'd be perfect!

Thanks for sharing!

Hi there, I just had to tell you, I couldn't stop saying "awwww!"

You are so talented! :) said...

These are stunning, Heather, just stunning.

I love the second necklace with the branches coming up and out of the oak leaf pendant and your color choices! Wonderful mix of traditional and modern with the burnt umber and fuchsia.

Once again you have floored me!
