As I glanced out my window this morning, I realized that today is the first day this fall that the leaves began to fall. The temperatures have been rather mild of late, definitely cooler, and the days are getting shorter, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. And of course some of the leaves are changing colors, with the treetops frosted in wonderful shades of gold, red and orange. As you might guess, autumn is my favorite season, and I celebrate it any way I can. Today I browsed through leaf-themed, handmade items on Etsy, marking the ones that seemed best to signify “the day the leaves fell.”

If you click on the image below, you’ll be taken directly to the treasury I curated on Etsy. From there, you can visit each shop and look at each image in detail. Enjoy!

Well, I had intended to do another book giveaway today, but time is not my friend and I will have to write that post later this week. The weather was beautiful, upper 70s—a great day to take a walk on the greenway behind my house that meanders along a creek. But as I said, time was short and I spent the entire day inside, chained to my keyboard. Oh, well. This is still early fall, and there will be more opportunities to enjoy the leaves.

For today, however, I’ll have to settle for a walk through leafy items found on Etsy. In obvious and hidden ways, all of these products share leaves as a design element. All of them are featured in shops from fellow and Blogging Business Artisans and BBEST members.
