Carnival of Colors: Getting Ready for Autumn

My Wedding Cake

It’s about that time of year when I start thinking about autumn, going back to school, sweaters, and fall leaves (I love fall leaves so much, they were the only decoration on my wedding cake.) This is a perfect time of year for the Etsy Bloggers Street Team to be hosting a blog carnival entitled “Carnival of Colors,” because I’m already thinking about all the gorgeous colors of fall. One of my favorite things to do when getting ready for a new school year was pick out new clothes and notebooks and things for the year. I still like to do that as an adult, and it’s even more fun with Etsy. Here are some of my top picks, heavy on rich and vibrant fall colors, to help you get into that autumn frame of mind.
