Dreaming of Fall

It was 90 degrees here yesterday and it looks to let up no time soon. In an effort to ignore this Indian summer I have my eyes set on Fall.

Lets start here with delicious caramel apples from the grocery...they were so very yummy, Robert and I polished them off in a couple days.

I loved this comment by Artybecca... she says that the only way to make it to the front page of Etsy is to have an acorn in your funny...yet so true it seems. I had picked up a few acorns while out at an account last week, left them on the kitchen table and worked out plans to create some out of polymer. !
These are my first attempt..I had more..but alas they tumbled to the floor while still warm from the oven and if there is one thing to know about polymer it is most fragile when warm. I'm looking forward to making more and with just a few changes in mind for the next go 'round. (like not dropping them)

Did you notice my 'new' little prop? It's a very old ceramic piece, a 50 cent garage sale find last week...sweet!

Dear Angie,
how sweet and wonderfull they are,-
very real in form, and the colors are wonderfull vibrant--how big are they,-? like actually size? Could they become earrings?
What a pitty you lost some of them, they are great.

Hugs, Dorthe

These are so great! I love the colors (they're sorta like Easter Acorns!) and their little brown caps!

The acorns are soooo cute...I wish I had an oak tree to scoop some up from. Have a great weekend.
