October ... from the first to the last!

     My, how time flies!  Doesn't seem anytime since special days of September were featured, and here we are in October with its own very special days, weeks, and themes for the month.
     This month's celebrations include Adopt a Shelter Dog, Breast Cancer Awareness, and Apple Month.  We hope that many dogs from many places will find forever homes this month.  This watercolor helps remind us that dogs need families, too.

Dogs come in all sizes, breeds, and colors.  From big to small, we love them all!

A serious concern for women and girls everywhere is breast cancer.  October has been set aside as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  There are fund-raisers of various kinds, with proceeds going to research or other organizations that help women who have been diagnosed.  Many wear clothing or jewelry or carry bags that exhibit the pink breast cancer awareness symbol, such as the earrings below.

Autumn is a beautiful time of the year, with the deciduous tree leaves changing to gorgeous splashes of color throughout much of the country.  We look forward to cooler days and special treats, such as apple cider, and a variety of delicious apples.  Although the apples below won't keep the doctor away, they are delightful to see.

The first week of the month has been designated American Craft month.  Our team has members across the world, not just in America, and every team member is a talented artist/crafter and their work represents a large genre of art forms.  Here is just a tiny sampling of some of their creations.

Just past the middle of October, on the seventeenth, it is World Greeting Card day.  Just think how happy you can make someone by sending them a card in the mail.  Think how happy it will make you to do something for someone else.  And, last but not least, think how the U.S. Post Office would benefit by such a huge mailing!  There are many talented card makers, and here are two of them.

And to wrap it all up, we end the month on October 31 with Halloween.  Witches, black cats, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, and all things black and orange.  

Enjoy your October, and remember, buy handmade.  And start with the Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street team for unique, well made, wonderful selections!

Wondering About Wedding Themes? Why Blue Is Never Wrong ...

If you aren't a bride who's in love with the colour pink, then choosing wedding accessories in blue may be the answer, specially the shade that's referred to as bridesmaid dresses.

Why This Particular Blue Is So Versatile

It's a pastel shade - meaning it will melt in to the background if you would like it to

It works beautifully at spring, summer, and winter weddings

Combine duck egg blue wedding accessories with gold or silver and also you get a very special luxe effect

Think about bronze, silver, or gold shoes for the bridesmaids - or listen to it down with neutrals

Duck egg blue looks fabulous on wedding cakes too

For an imaginative, refined take a look at a bridesmaid dress, take a look frock from Dessy. DC2946 is really a soft tulle in celadon over platinum rococo lace dress. Match with our Pearly Aqua Chandelier Earrings.

Why else is blue this type of dream wedding theme? Use it to decorate the inside of a marquee, for the seating plans, in your tables.

Other Reasons To Choose Blue

You'll be spoilt for choice with regards to flowers. Talk to your florist and a starter you are able to opt for; hyacinths, bluebells, delphiniums, clematis, grape hyacinths, ranunculus, lavender, larkspur, anemones ...

Blue is really a classic color for wedding invites too. Nothing is quite as inviting like a crisp blue envelope coming in to the mailbox, filled with beautiful calligraphy.

This shade of blue utilizes lace too. Consider placing lace on the blue tablecloth. Or dressing your bridesmaids in various shades of blue to have an ombre effect.

And obviously, you will be following the old rhyme for which to wear in a wedding permanently fortune:

"Something old, new things, something borrowed, something blue ..."

To get New World Coins, players can get it by doing missions in the game to fight monsters. But this way players not only get a small amount, but also difficult. Another simple and easy way is to buy directly through some professional online game providers, such as NewWorldCoins.
