"Harvest Colors" knitted wrap... (an Autumn surprise in my ETSY shop)

As the days of summer gradually fade away, daylight hours of Autumn becoming shorter and shorter.  Temperatures drop with the setting of the Harvest sun,... before the winter freeze arrives, the hills come alive for a few weeks in their glorious painted display....


  the colors of the Autumn season...
  deep red, bright yellow, burnt orange, 
with pinks, and amber adding to the beautiful
 fall foliage palette...

 Introducing my beautiful
"Harvest Colors"
knitted wrap..

as the sun sets on our
season of summer...

Nature explodes in an amazing
display of beautiful
and vibrant
colors...

a final burst of glorious beauty,
as though Nature 
has been saving up all year
for this grand finale
 of color~ 

Autumn seems to be
suddenly upon us..

the mornings are foggy
and crisp...

"It was a beautiful bright autumn day,
with air like cider 
and a sky so blue you could
drown in it."
Diana Gabaldon, (Outlander #1)
the blooms
in Autumn gardens 
blossom in vibrant colors
 before the cold 
wretched frost arrives...
 Autumn...
the year's last,
and loveliest smile...
 this is a truly exquisite
knitted wrap..
a one of a kind 
accessory for your fall
wardrobe..

sumptuous and exquisite...
the wrap measures
80 inches long x 20 inches wide

embellished with over 60
handmade flowers...
~
each flower is delicately
accented with beautiful
seedbeads, glass and 
crystal beads
there is only one...
I made it so beautiful
that I can hardly bear to
part with it...
 you can find it
Love,love..
Vicki
