I love October! In Florida it's when we usually get our first taste of fall. It's not cold, mind you, but cooler, and the light is softer.  Although I'm a Florida native, my ancestry is pretty much Scottish, English, and Irish with a touch of German thrown in, basically cold weather types of people.  I think it's so deeply rooted that even  all these generations away I still long for woolen knits, changing leaves, and log fires.

As I made my Friday treasury on Etsy I decided to celebrate the beginning of my favorite month with a collection of beautiful items:

Nastershum's scarf, adorably modeled by this little one, perfectly sets the mood. The colors have inspired me.
Fosterbk's  photo of a leaf on a sandy beach absolutely glows with warmth, capturing that autumn light.
Twopoodleprints modern leaf print has a softer palette which softens the brightness of the collection a bit, the statement "love" captures my sentiment completely.
Engelfelt's  owl has been a favorite of mine. I love the shade of gold in his eyes. Owls become more active around here in the fall, even last night I heard several hooting to each other.
RedTileStudios has so many beautiful bits of fall inspired art. It was really hard to pick just one.  I'm in love with this beautiful tree.
BirdTrouble's coasters are simple and elegant. I love pieces that have a story behind them.  The colors are absolutely perfect.
WeeBindery's little books hold so much magic for me.  They are exquisitely made and come in so many beautiful colors. I love the warm honey shade of this one!
LeapingGazelle's photos have this beautiful dreamlike quality to them, I especially love way they have a vintage appearance.
FrauleinSchmidt's adorable owl iphone cozy is so whimsical yet functional. I love the muted yellow and gray and the wink is the perfect touch!
Krissy167's gorgeous bouquets really make me wish that Etsy was around when I was getting married. They are so elegant.  This color scheme is unusual and stunning!
ljbe's whimsical art pieces and upcycled jewelry have long been favorites of mine. She creates pieces that touch a part of your heart.
Yellowbugboutique has a pillow for every occasion, including the beginning of October. She has a knack for creating fun and whimsical pillows that can suit any mood!
TheApple can always be counted on for fun and quirky jewelry! These adorable little birds just had that perfect autumn glow.
Mainichi's pin completely drew me in with the soft, yet striking composition. Of course I'm always excited about upcycled pieces and this one has such a modern look.
PetitOiseau's gumball necklace has such clean modern look, yet has been made from vintage bakelite beads.  Simple, elegant, and with that amazing pop of gold.
thecrosbie's petal coat rack, is would be a beautiful addition to any home with it's warm, soft palette.

Every single piece in this treasury says "Hello October" to me and has completely brightened my day!
