Autumn, Leaves & A Coupon Code!!!

Happy Autumn Everybody!!  Wow, the days have been just gorgeous around here.  The birds are so happy, the leaves are dancing and the chipmunks are chipping.  I've been busy, busy, busy...making lots of beautiful new earrings, just in time for your Fall wardrobe.  Like these, for instance:
 Named "Falling Leaves" and they are for sale in my Etsy Shop. And, just for you, I have a special Autumn coupon code for 20% off ~ just type in coupon code FALL2012 at checkout to receive the discount. 
Not only has Autumn arrived in full swing, the butterflies are migrating through this area and are everywhere!  These little "Buckeyes" are some of my most favorites.  And, they are the easiest to photograph, since they keep their wings open a lot...just gorgeous!  Although these are not butterflies, the butterflies inspired them:
I'm in love with the Faceted Green Amethyst [Prasiolite] stones.  I named these "Fluttering" ~ they are for sale in the shop, too!  And don't forget your coupon code [FALL2012] for 20% off!

Back to work!  Hope you are having a beautiful day!

love & peace always ~ Kathy

Life, Love, Leaves, Lasagna & Lita...

whew...September has been a whirlwind of activities for me!  Lita had surgery, I shot my very first wedding, I had 2 back to back art shows...and, it's only the 16th!  So, first of all, I had to share this gorgeous butterfly with you...his wings are worn and tattered, but I'm honored he chose his last few days on earth to spend with me in my flower garden...so beautiful!
 I'm so excited!!  I was hired to shoot my very first wedding!  This is my favorite shot from the event.  A wonderful experience and a beautiful young couple :)
And then, my poor little Lita had to have surgery!  She went running down the hill [chasing Ozzy, as usual] and literally tore the tendon in her leg right in half.  The surgeon cut her leg bone, stacked it back up and then screwed it together with metal plates.  But, that's not the worst part...the worst part is, we have to keep her from using it for 6 whole weeks!  Ugh...she's so sad.  We have to take her out with a leash and a sling to go potty...she wants to play so bad :(
So, just to give her a little bit of excitement, I'm going to give away a pair of these beautiful copper leaf earrings and I'm going to let her pick the winner Wednesday morning [the 19th].  Of course, all you have to do to get your name in the hat is comment on this blog post, or leave a comment on the link on my facebook page ~ good luck!
 And these are so gorgeous!  I named them "Ghost Leaves" ~ the copper filigree leaves are so light-weight, you forget you have them on.  I wore mine yesterday and got so many compliments!  And, if you don't win them, they are for sale in my Etsy shop and they are only $10 ~ perfect for Autumn!
I'll leave you with this gorgeous butterfly and my Lasagna recipe ~ it's sooooo good!!!  Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the drawing!!

love & peace always ~ Kathy
