The mountains here in Vermont are adorning themselves with the most beautiful colors right now....intense shades of yellow and red and orange, with touches of summer green still visible.
And here is another sort of autumn adornment--a little butterfly, with wings that blend perfectly with the petals of these mum flowers, and the colors of fall leaves.
Right now I am seeing lots of red and black "woolie-bear" caterpillars on the roads, crossing them with determination as they do every fall. When I take a walk, I rescue them from the road and put them in the grass. I am not certain what they look like in their butterfly state, but perhaps they look like this pin...
It features wings made of silk threads of various shades of gold and pumpkin, sparkling throughout with semi-precious stones: carnelian, garnet, citrine and freshwater pearls, and vintage bronze seed beads.
The Autumn Butterfly pin is available exclusively on my Glitter and Grunge page.
