Here in Ohio, the wind is blowing, the sun is shining, and it smells like Fall. Cooler crisp air, the crunch of leaves underfoot, there are so many things to love about autumn. So in addition to football, these would include…
Owl: The quintessential symbol of wisdom. Who knew the owl fashion trend would stick around so long? These wide-eyed nocturnal birds became a popular fashion motif and have been adorning home décor items, clothing, and jewelry ever since we fell for them. Fall is the ideal time to spot an owl, and with Halloween approaching, it’s the ideal time to display them, too.
Leaf: A falling leaf is just summer’s way of waving goodbye… A mild summer and gentle winds have forecasters predicting glorious fall foliage displays this year. Keep track of peak dates in your state and welcome fall with ever popular 24k gold-dipped real leaves fashioned into jewelry or ornaments.
Nut: Acorns are ripening just in time for the squirrels to store them for winter. From crafts to decorations, to just collecting them, acorns are a true symbol of Fall.
Scarecrow: A little whimsy now and then, keeps the fun in fashion. What better way to showcase your sense of humor and love of Fall than a scarecrow, no-brainer “if I only had a brain” autumn accessory.
Harvest: ‘tis the season to set jack-o-lanterns beneath the harvest moon. And with Thanksgiving around the corner, be sure to have a suitable selection of hostess gifts on hand for the holidays. From pins to charms (make your own wine glass charms with silver charms and a piece of ribbon), we love the cozy feeling Thanksgiving brings.
Gold: As in the color—not just the metal. Autumn leaves ablaze in gold, bronze, and copper are the perfect backdrop for the growing yellow-gold trend. Vermeil and gold-plate have been gaining fashion-jewelry ground in recent years, and as the price of gold has dropped more than 25%, yellow karat gold is making a strong comeback. The warm glow and vintage look of yellow gold is a popular choice for any gift. Treat yourself, you deserve a little something, maybe new earrings to dress-up your favorite fuzzy sweater.
Chill… Enjoy the cooler air with a honey-crisp apple or a little hard cider. Find ways to budget at least some time to relax to prevent burnout with the holiday season rush.
What one word describes what we love most about this time of year……. “everything.”
