2nd Annual Octoberfest Blog Hop 2013



I keep asking myself,
"Just when did October get here?"
It seems like this year just flew right by.

This time of year is always my fav.
Basketball, the world series, football and hockey..
Oh wait that should be saved for another blog. HA!

I love the changing of the colors,
the oranges, reds and yellows just amaze me.
Colder weather means lots of hot cocoa and good books.

Rita of  Toltec Jewels, put out a call for her 
2nd Annual Octoberfest blog hop,
I had to get in the fun.
Last year I was just a newbie to creating.
and was very afraid to show a piece.
To anyone!
This year I made a bracelet that 
represented October to me.



I also made a pair of earrings.


 One more bracelet.

All of these pieces are available at my etsy

I want to thank Rita for allowing me to be a part of this years hop.
I always enjoy your hops.

Here is a list of the other participants...
Lots of talent here.. 
So grab something to drink and Enjoy!!
