Fall Fashion :: Day One {+Huge Giveaway}

Welcome, sweet readers! This morning signifies the first day of our Fall Fashion event, which {as you can see by looking at the program} are scattered throughout our entire Walk Through the Orchard -- I hope that you will be able to join us in exhibiting beautiful, feminine, modest and, of course, Autumn'y fashions!

Autumn is one of our favorite times of year for many, many reasons {as I am sure you are beginning to find out through this event}. However, one of the dominant reasons would be the lovely apparel you turn to in the mornings. We begin to put away our summery clothing -- and exchange them for fingerless gloves, scarves, long-sleeved blouses, full, floor-length skirts, cute leather boots and warm, knit socks. This is the time of year when those sultry mornings of summer, melt into a crisp, cool autumn evening.

So join us, and let us inspire you to bring out the beauty of autumn!

:: The Giveaway ::

For our Fall Fashion event, we am so pleased to be hosting two very special giveaway --
only open exclusively to those who participate in one or more of the Fall Fashion Days.

| Firstly |

We was so blessed to come upon a beautiful shop entitled 'LBArtworks'. Miss Lynda, who opened LBArtworks in June of 2007, offers so many beautiful purses to choose from -- each so very beautiful, and each full of style and charm. After searching her shop for a while, we found a certain purse that we knew would be simply perfect for our Walk Through the Orchard  -- and Miss Lynda was only too happy to sponsor for us!

Today, I am so happy to offer the participants in my Fall Fashion Days this lovely purse ~

Is this not one of the most beautiful purses you have ever seen? I wish ever so much that I could afford to buy one of my own. Such warm rich colors, such a natural air which is added by the buttons, and so much charm is added with the little bird silhouette -- the winner of this lovely handmade purse is going to be one extremely blessed young woman! *smile*

   The color of the leaves on this fabric just needed a little bird hiding in their midst. The soft Pumpkin duck canvas cloth was just the right background for the little bird who has landed on a tree branch. 
   I have appliqued fabric that is covered with trees and leaves to the bag while a hand drawn bird and leaves are also appliqued onto the purse to complete the design. 
  The lining of the purse is made of tan soft cotton. The bag measures 9" wide by 11" tall and contains 6 pockets for all those things that generally end up in the bottom of the purse. The handle has a handmade wood button with a hole in the center attached to help adjust the shoulder strap. It matches the buttons that are attached to the flap which secures the bag opening with a magnetic snap. The flap was added for all of you who need more security for the bag opening. 
  The handmade wood buttons vary according to what wood is available to me. I use only fallen wood and no trees are harmed in the making of my buttons. 
  Everything has been double sewn and the stress areas have triple stitching. Batting and interfacing has been placed between the lining and outer fabrics to give the bag a very soft and yet durable feel. 
  This is a great bag for any occasion! It is plenty roomy for all those necessities and extras too!

Please be sure to view her lovely shop, filled to the brim with hand-knit scarves, wool hats, shawls, mittens, cuffs, and all other sorts of lovelies - perfect for autumn or as holiday gifts.

The winner will be allowed to to choose the color of their choice.
