Autumn Tag

Sorry for not posting anything all week time seems to have gotten away from me again. I hope you all had a good Labor Day yesterday. Rich spent the weekend taking down Emilias pool so we know summer is really over now even though we are suppose to have a few more weeks of it. This year we planted a vegetable garden but because it was so cool and rainy most of the summer we have not gotten many vegetables.
As you can see our tomato plants are huge and have lots of green tomatoes on them but they are not turning red. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get them to ripen faster? We have gotten quite a few cucumbers, eggplant and a few zucchini so far though.
Today also brings the start of the new daytime TV season for some of my favorite talk shows. I am so happy to see the ladies of The View back again. I love hearing them talk about what is going on in the world. Regis and Kelly and Ellen are back too. Next week will bring the return of Oprah as well an other favorite of mine. The nighttime summer tv season is winding down now. I was really sad to see Jeff go home on BB. I am rooting for Jordan or Kevin to win now. My favorite on Americas Got Talent so far is Barbara Bedia. Emilias is Voices of Glory.
Today I am sharing a project I made for this months challenge in my Sheteam Group on Etsy. This month the challenge was the colors of fall or Halloween items. I went with the colors of fall and this is what I came up with.

I started by making some more crochet flower clips like I have shared in previous posts but in fall colors but this time. This time I wanted to create something to put them on so I decided to make a tag. I stamped The Angel Company leaf images with Versamark ink on a manila shipping tag and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. Next I used some different color distress inks with the blending tool to create the fall colors. After that I cut some slits in the tag to hold the barrettes and then tied a piece of Olive Binding ribbon through the hole. I think this would make a great gift because it is something different than a card and can be tied to packages too. It is now up for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying it. Well that's it for now I hope to be back with more things to share soon. Until then I hope you have a great week and as always thanks for stopping by.

Terri your clips are so pretty and I love the tag you have them displayed on.

I had always heard that if you pinch off any new flowrs that it would help ripen the tomatoes that are on the vine.
Love the crocheted hair clips, nicely displayed on the tag also.
I was hoping Jeff would of gotten also. I use to think that him and Jordan would make a good couple, but I no longer feel that way, he has to much of an attitude. I hope Jordan takes it all....go NC girl.......
