Autumn is probably my favourite season, and for me, is all about forests. One of my earliest memories is of going hunting for wild mushrooms in the forests of the Pyrenees with my grandparents. I love that it's called "hunting". Feels dangerous and subterfuginous. [That'll do for my word of the day.]
Back to topic, I've noticed all sorts of foresty-themes making the front pages of the design blogs for some time now... Leaves, acorns, mushrooms, owls, deer (deer antlers anyone?) - could it be that autumn is becoming everyone's favourite season?
In its honour, I have made some baby owl stud earrings in fine silver. The deer antlers and mushroom projects will have to wait a little while.
