It's Almost Fall & Halloween's A-Comin'!

In case no one's noticed, I love Fall.  I'd probably love it a lot more if I lived someplace where we actually HAD a true Autumn Experience.  Alas, in my part of California, we have two Seasons; hot & dry followed by (to us thin-bloods) cold & semi-wet (if you consider wet 6 inches of rain on one day and maybe 4 inches on another).

My dad says the only thing he misses about living in South Bend is Autumn and the smell of burning leaves.  Other than that, not really. 
Me?  Well, I was only 7 when we moved out here so what I remember of Fall and Winter isn't a lot and all from a kids POV.  As an adult, it's the colors I want. Red. Gold. Brown. Maroon.  God's Paintboard.  I love it and I'm always digging out pictures and putting them on my computer screen at work so I'll at least have a little bit of that Fall Season.  The closest I can come is with my jewelry.  I did do some work this weekend but I haven't taken pictures, yet.  But, here's a small glimpse of at least one of them.  Some earrings.  (I made a necklace but, again, I couldn't make the necklace without making earrings so I made several that might match go with it. Here's one pair; I'm calling them - and the necklace - Blood Moon Rising... have I ever mentioned I just love Halloween?)

I also spent some of the time cleaning up my work area.... I should have taken pictures of "before" and "after" but I didn't want to terrify anyone! :)
What did you do this weekend?
