Monday Muse and Beady Link Party

Hmm, last Monday of August. I'm gonna call it. Summer is breathing it's last humid breath and soon those crimp autumn days will be here and I will relishing in all the colors and sights of the season. If you aren't ready to let go of summer, you may want to look away. Autumn inspirations ahead! 

I'll ease you into the season with a few late summer garden finds like this sweet little lampwork butterfly bead by JewelryBeadsbyKate

Love this set from Russian lampwork artist Maria Kirillova from GlassMagic. Yeah, let's file these under completely amazing!

These remind me of autumn mums. They are already popping at the farmer's markets in our town. That's my first hint that fall is a pumpkin's throw away! Lampwork flowers from KatrinaTreasures.

Lisa Peters and Mother Nature must have sat down for tea one afternoon because she is channelling the best of autumn in these rustic floral raku pieces. I have a nice collection of leaves in this style. I must go pull them out today! Stop by LisaPetersArt to find them.

A metallic raku finish on mini acorn charms? Yes, please! These lovelies are from Valerie over at ClayForACure. A portion of the sales are donated to finding a cure for cancer. I had to stop writing this post to purchase a pair for myself!

My bead table is filled with autumn beads. These little birch branch beads are one of my latest creations. Find them in my Humblebeads Etsy shop. 

You can find all sorts of autumn goodness created in lampwork glass over at MasqueBeads. Just take a few minutes to visit this shop, I want so many!!! 

I had to sneak in a pumpkin, what's autumn with out a little pumpkin spice! These goregous raku ones are from KiyoiDesgin.

I'm loving this golden mustard color for fall, it's been popping up in my own beads and Carol from TerraRustica has perfectly captured the color with a lacy floral design. Hmm, I may need these too.

I so love summer, but fall is my favorite time of the year. I'm looking forward to the cooler temperatures, the brilliant foliage colors, and the yummy sweet smells. We are ready for it to rain here in California!

Thank you so much for the feature Heather! I had to explain what blogs were to my husband today. I'm still not sure he gets it. lol
