Time to Vote for the October Craft a Long!

Apologies for the late date on this one! 
Our theme was Harvest/Fall and here are the entries:

2, Hand Built Ceramic Harvest Pumpkins from HurricanePottery

3. Rustic Pumpkin Earrings from ChloeBoutique
Melon beads are frosty orange, but the stripes or corrugation marks are transparent, allowing a little bit of sparkle. The beads are topped with leafy bronze bead caps and bronze corrugated rounds. The "rustic pumpkins" are then secured onto bronze oval rings with bronze wire. Czech glass leaf beads in a pearly topaz finish fall beside the "rustic pumpkins" on the bronze oval rings. 

4. Sunset Trees Handpainted Scarf from Splendiferous Fiber
Sunset colors of reds, orange, purple and deep yellow make a watercolor background for metallic pewter hand printed trees. Metallic Gold spatters accent the scarf. One of a Kind, 100 % silk, handpainted and heat set. Long enough to use as a sash as well as neck scarf. 10.5 x 59 inches of pure color.

5. October Tones Watercolor Print by SlmChance
love autumn… the colors, the cooling weather, comfy clothing, Halloween… and this painting is a tribute to the great warm colors and stylish clothes of the fall season. 

6. Early Autumn Necklace by Fluente Designs
The beautiful colors in this necklace represent the magical changes from summer's greens to fall's golds, oranges, and reds.

7. Harvest Leaves Ponytails from Mama's Little Monkeys

8. Autumnal Leaves Scarf by Trapped In Time Designs

9. Pumpkin Necklace by Etco
Handmade polymer clay pumpkin, accented with antiqued brass bead cap. Hang from an antique brass chain

10. Oyster Shell Wall Clock - Amber Leopard by Art on the Half Shell
Handcrafted oyster shell wall clock featuring a dozen oyster shells set like the hours around a hand-glazed dinner plate with a unique leopard-like amber pattern. Sea glass in shades of amber and bottle brown circles the plate bottom like minutes.

11. Autumn Haze by Dusty Oak Ornaments
This pretty fall ornament is made with the subtle tones of an October day. Autumn leaves in shades of teal, orange and yellow float on a cream background with glistening copper highlights. I used a matching iridescent, copper ribbon for the bow and adorned it with glittered leaves and small berries

12. Sunset Handspun Hat by Knitzy

14.Red Beans and Lotion Bar from Homestead

Our Red Beans & Rice Lotion Bar is a unique solid lotion bar made of luscious oils, butters, and essential oils that melt with the warmth of your skin. This is NOT a bar of soap.

Two ingredients make our Red Beans & Rice Lotion Bar unique: the Red Beans, actually Asian adzuki beans, are wonderful massagers that aid in delivering the nutrients from the oils and butters deep into the skin; Rice Bran oil, a traditional beauty treatment in Japan, is a powerful antioxidant and contains a high level of Vitamin E as well as many nutrients, fatty acids and essential oils.

Preservative free and fragranced with the purest lavender essential oil to be found, our massage bar is a decadent pleasure you can't live without.

15.Assorted Fall Clothespins by MicroMops

16. Boo! Necklace from Karens Klayworks
