Autumn Tree of Life

Autumn Tree of Life
© 2012
available HERE as a greeting card
may also be available in my Etsy shop

In celebration of Samhain, Lughnasadh, harvest, autumn equinox, fall, Halloween, Celtic knots and trees (as well as tree huggers!).

The design is my own (including the knotted border, tree and cloudy sky).    

I just finished this piece just yesterday. It was a miracle to get anything like this done since this year has been the most crisis ridden year of my life with barely enough time to catch my breath between unexpected (and emotionally catastrophic) events.

Meet Bette Be Good Vintage and Another Time Vintage Apparel!

Vintage 1980s Black Beaded Belt with Multi Colored Flowers XS 26 waist
available HERE

I always loved cummerbund belts from the 1980s. I still have many of them from that era in my closet that I still wear (gave up the big hair that went with these, though!).

Bette has several shops. She primarily focuses on vintage apparel from the Victorian era through the 1960s (but tries to narrow her focus even more to the 1940s - 1950s). This belt is an exception.

Bette's website is Another Time Vintage Apparel and the Etsy shop that featured this belt is Bette Be Good Vintage. Bette also has another Etsy shop called Bette's Bargains.

(Tina of Blue Tine Jewellery also has a blog post about Bette this week HERE).
