The little Japanese maple next to our screened porch.
A neighbor's front yard is full of these red maple trees.
Golden fan shaped leaves on my gingko tree. This is the first year the leaves turned yellow - we usually have a freeze before now and that makes the leaves fall off overnight!

Is yours the family on your block that turns your front yard into a graveyard for Halloween?
We don't go all out decorating at my house, but we do have a stack of carved funkins jack-o-lanterns to greet any October guests.

Here's a peak inside at some of the one-of-a-kind finds.
And that's my blue patchwork handbag, hanging next to the crocheted flower scarf.
Also inside is a list of some of the best indie craft shows across the country and other crafty websites. It's a great way to get ideas to get started on your holiday shopping. Buy Handmade!

And new from FeltSewGood this Fall. . . felted wool mittens in kids' sizes!
And this cute pouch/clutch was made from an embroidered, felted wool sweater vest.
Stop by the shop and see what's new!

The event is Saturday, October 17, from 10am - 3:30pm and benefits the Indiana Chapter of March of Dimes. If you are going to be in the Indianapolis area this weekend, stop by and see fine arts and crafts from 50 Indiana artisans.
I'm really looking forward to meeting fellow Etsy artists and crafters and taking part in this event. I'll tell you more about it next week.

I love beads, so this mega long beaded necklace, made from an assortment of crystal, glass, shell and ceramic beads caught my eye.
All these items, and many more, are available in Melissa's Etsy shop, MadebyMelissa.
And of course, being a member of the Etsy Bloggers Team, Melissa has a lovely blog of her own. On her blog, Made by Melissa, she blogs about her craft, giveaways and fellow Etsy artists. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
