Giveaway Day - Reworked

I am so happy to be here at Smile and Wave again this month. I run the reworked art blog to keep me inspired to make things and find beautiful things out in the wide crafting world. It's great motivation for me to get creating when I know I can post it and share it with other people.

I also have a little shop to sell some of the jewelry I make on etsy and hope to some day spread my wings and sell other things I make as well. I hope you will stop in and visit my shop and blog and see if anything catches your eye!

The winner can choose one of my vintage style beaded necklaces or your choice of two pairs of earrings from my shop! Also, all Smile and Wave readers can get 20% off their order for the month of October if you mention Smile and Wave in your notes to the seller.

To enter this giveaway, leave your favorite Fall memory in the comments below. Winner will be drawn Monday!

My favorite fall memory would have to be...last year about this time I met my dear friend Ryan who has made my life so much brighter! It's an unrequited love as far as I know but he makes me happy just being around him!

Emily said...

It's really hard for me to pick a favorite fall memory, but I have had some really awesome birthday celebrations over the years in this season.

Sarah Kinsey said...

Lovely! Favorite fall memory is when we my grandfather came to visit us for the first time when we had moved to Montana. I was really bummed that no one was gonna be with us that Thanksgiving but he came!! I was so stinkin' happy. :)

Love or Nothing said...

my favorite fall memory is when my family and i used to carve pumpkins every Halloween. sounds really generic because everyone does that haha but it was always a random time of the year where we all just had a lot of fun no matter what was going on in life and it never left me disappointed. :)

Laura said...

I remember having to rake leaves .. omigosh we had so many trees! My sister and I would always play in the big piles!

Thanks!

my favorite fall memory is hard to pick because i have so many. I think it would have to be when my aunt, brother, and I went to Callaway Gardens in Georgia and stumbled upon their fall festival. Totally wansnt planned. We enjoyed things from the general store, pumpkin painting, corn mazes, and a fall picnic! It was a day to be remembered!

Stacey said...

My favorite fall memory is walking home from kindergarten in the crunching leaves. The sound, the texture and the smell of the leaves. Love it!

Autumn walks with my husband through crunchy leaves back when we were still dating.

Hope said...

My favorite fall memory is playing in a huge pile of leaves with all my siblings and cousins and getting in trouble with our Grandma about 8 years ago. Those were some good times.

I love starting to wear scarves again. Except it's still in the high 80s here, so no scarves yet!

Stacey said...

My favorite fall memory is driving to Amish country and seeing the beautiful scenery. The trees were brilliant colors and the crisp air coming in the car windows was so invigorating. And we always stopped at the orchard for a glass of cider.

Kristi said...

Right now my favorite Fall memory is from just last year. I was taking a visual design class and we had to bring in leaves and stuff that we'd found, for a project. One rainy day after my daughter got home from school, we went out in the neighborhood looking for the most beautiful Fall leaves we could find. Just the other day, we were talking about how much we loved that.

becca m. said...

My favorite fall memory is my freshman year of college... it was my first time living somewhere with real 'seasons' and I remember looking out my dorm room window at this beautiful tree each day and watching it change...

Suzy said...

I loved jumping into leaf piles after my dad slaved away raking them up! It sorta pissed him off, but it was pure bliss to me.

Meg said...

It's hard to choose just one, the birth of my oldest daughter, the day that my husband asked me to marry him and my wedding day!

My favorite fall memory is raking leaves with my dad and then jumping in!

Julianne said...

My favorite fall memory is of when my Mom and I used to make window decorations out of fall leaves and wax paper. I remember collecting the prettiest leaves for my Mom on my way home from school and then she would always give me a big hug when I gave them to her. Fall is definitely my favorite season. :)

tomsmomsrecords said...

My younger brother and sister and I would rake all the leaves in the backyard into a figure eight race track and then race around it on our bikes for hours. The best part was crashing! :)

hetherington said...

fall is the best season for falling in love, and the best season for cuddling up with a fresh book from the library and something great-smelling to drink or eat. i don't have one particular favorite memory from this season, just a mash of accumulated loveliness. best season ever...and beautiful jewelery, too!

Cheryl said...

i loved trick or treating when i was little...getting home with my brother and friends to compare candy and do some trading.

Kelly said...

jumping in leaves after my parents raked the front yard.

Michele said...

When we were kids, my brother and sisters and I would play our "catching money" game. You had to catch as many blowing leaves as possible. So much fun! I realize now it must have been entertaining for our mom too, all of us running in crazy circles, looking up, with our arms out-stretched!

Pakou said...

That one year I made apple pie for the first time in the basement of my college dorm. That was over 5 years ago, but we went apple picking and baked the afternoon away.

doddroad said...

Unlike most people I mourn the passing of summer each fall, but hugely look forward to winter and the Holidays. That said, I really enjoyed apple picking with my family as a kid. I loved the hay rides, hot apple cider, and eating so many apples my belly felt like it would rupture.

Emaline said...

My favorite fall memory is picking apples with my mom and brothers and canning apple sauce and butter.

Lisa! said...

My brother and I always went trick or treating together when I was little. So it's not a single memory, but a chunk of years spending time as siblings =]

The Daily Fashionista said...

Fave fall memory is taking my hubby on a surprise trip to monticello and vineyard visiting. Then we went apple picking in an orchard on a mountain.

Kendal said...

There is a farm near our house, and every year we take our son there to feed the horses and get apple cider donuts.

kendall said...

I have great memories of jumping in piles of leaves with my sister. My dad would help us rake up a massive pile and then we would jump in them and roll around. Fall is the best.

becks said...

A local nature preserve near where I grew up has apple and maple festivals every year and I used to LOVE going and checking out the booths and delicious goodies!

daughteroftheRiver said...

I used to park on the other side of a small bird sanctuary when I was in college so every morning I could walk across the grass and admire the colorful leaves and the japanese lilies that would spontaneously pop up.

Christina said...

My favorite fall memory is taking my son to a Halloween carnival last year. It was sooo fun! Great giveaway! :o)

Holly said...

I love to remember the childhood trips to our local apple orchard and eating honey sticks of all flavors.

alovelylittleworld said...

My favourite fall memory is going to the beach with my fam. The Monarch butterflies were migrating so they were EVERYWHERE. Also someone took the dog of his leash and he suddenly has this burst of energy and ran, like with dust flying, away... then he got to the end of trail turned around and look at us like "hmmmm, that wasn't a great plan"

imjen said...

one of my favorite Fall memories is when my husband and I went Horseback riding through mountain trails during our honeymoon.

Teresa said...

As a kid, we didn't live in much of a neighborhood, so we didn't trick-or-treat. Instead, my mom would put together a bunch of fall games, invite a bunch of friends over and we'd dress up and eat candy together.

IWantToBeASpork said...

My favorite fall memory is riding bikes in the neighborhood.

Team Cramer said...

painting pumpkins as a family growing up!

Randi said...

Trick-or-treating in my Grandma's neighborhood. Those old ladies gave out full size bars of candy and were so sweet ♥

The Turners said...

New fav memories are made every year with my family at Thanksgiving. We get together and everyone plays different instruments and we sing old folk songs and dance. Most fun ever!

Lisa said...

I got married in the fall!! so hard to believe that was 5 years ago!

Suburban Sweetheart said...

I began dating my high school boyfriend in October of 2001. He's dead now, after a suicide in 2005 - but the times we spent together that fall have kept me going every fall since then. Drinking hot chocolate, passing out candy to trick-or-treaters, exploring the woods near our hometown... Fall will always remind me of him.

Teddi said...

i love rolling down the hill in a bed of crunchy leaves

Karissa Jade Ferguson said...

The Dapper Owl said...

My favorite fall memory is driving through a small Pennsylvanian town that I used to live in for the first time in fall. I loved all of the colors on the trees. In Las Vegas we don't really get seasons so it kinda weirded me out haha

Andrea!!! said...

My favorite fall memory is jumping rope with my dad and sister. My dad is tall, so he would swing the rope and all three of us would be able to jump at the same time - lots of fun :)

Gosh, makes me happy just thinking about it! We are all toooo big to do that now!

Laura Stewart said...

Mandi said...

Evening strolls with my fiance. We've been taking them since my first year of high school, and we always say fall is our season.

Karla said...

It's always been raking up leaves to see how big we can make the pile, and then jumping in it over and over. I still do it with my kids!

Via said...

It's definetely two years ago (Fall '08) when I got pregnant for my first baby. We were so happy and nervous at the same time ^_^

PS: Baby Owen was born on June 2009

mrs boo radley said...

When I took my husband home to meet my family, before he was my husband, and we stood out under the stars...which are bright at home because my parents live in the country.

ya said...

I looove those green earrings!
My favorite fall memory was 4 years ago at a halloween party where I was dressed as robin(batmans sidekick) & this guy I had a crush on for a year told me he'd come. well he dressed up as a mexican construction worker(crazy fake mustache & all) & late in the evening he confessed his "like" for me. It was so cute. We began seeing each other after that & we got married 3 years later almost to the day! Our first anniversary is coming up & I can not wait to celebrate it(& fall) with pumkin ales & pumpkin cheesecakes galore & of course a halloween party!

Megan said...

Last fall, I was getting ready for the birth of my baby. I decorated his bedroom and painted every room in our house. He was born December 9!

Jessica said...

my favorite fall memory is that in 2008, my hubby & i were not coming home (AR & LA) for the holiday & on the spur of the moment, we decided to drive to phoenix because we've never been, but had to be back in albuquerque by 2 pm to eat thanksgiving lunch with friends. we drove to phoenix, drove around the town, grabbed some jack in the box & drove right back to ABQ just in time to get ready for lunch. then the following day, we found out we were expecting a baby! heehee!

Hi from Mike, Christy and Finn: said...

Going to the pumpkin patch with my six month old son. He kept biting the tiny pumpkins and then making a funny face. Super cute.

The Currier Family said...

giving birth to my son, Max, two nights after my birthday. My last meal was from my favorite restaurant (Noble Rot)in Portland, OR...that next morning my water broke.

Amanda said...

Fall (or Autumn as we call it in Australia) reminds me of the annual camping trips my family took when I was a child. Campfires, easter eggs and cool weather. Perfect :-)

Fritzi Marie said...

My favorite fall memory is from a few years ago. My husband and I went camping in The Smokey Mountains during the peak of fall. It was beautiful and I will never forget it.

Bethany said...

So so many lovely fall memories...but, last year, on this exact day, I married my best friend! Changing leaves, golden corn, a cool breeze, caramel apples, and dancin in a barn all night long. Ahhh, it doesn't get any better than that!

(Or maybe, it's that time when I was small and my sisters were too old to go Trick or Treating with me, so I dressed my stuffed animals up and lugged them around all night....yeah, maybe not.)

Whimsical Woodland said...

My favorite fall memory was when my dad would rake up a huge pile of leaves and my sister and I would spend hours playing and jumping around in them.

cindy said...

It was a few years ago my house was decoarted to the nines and my bitty cousins came unexpectedly. They then began the cutest inspection/question evening ever. We even had an impromptu costume party. It was the cutest thing to see. It will be the best pre holiday gathering ever.

SuperFlyHannah said...

Walking through the woods with our former dog which had the same colours as the fallen leafs. Beautiful!

Jenna said...

My favorite memory is that september 3 years ago I met my boyfriend Matt at a rough time in his life where he lost his brother. We like to think that he brought us together. We've both changed each others life for the better... not to mention fall has HALLOWEEN & hay rides!!!!!

mandiegirl said...

We live in Albuquerque, & every October, we try to attend the balloon fiesta. wake up early, drop by starbucks for a warm cup, & then watch hundreds of hot air balloons go up in the air...it's wonderful!

Jordan said...

Boston in the fall. We lived there for two years and I'll never forget it...

Christie said...

throwing a smashing Halloween party with my favorite partner-in-crime and bff since college, Suzy at her place in Tennessee.

Emily said...

My favorite fall memories are of crunching the fallen leaves and bundling up in my favorite clothes for walks in the crisp air!

Eve said...

10 years ago I was a sophomore in college. I used to browse our university bookstore after class sometimes and look at their cute housewares section. I had told my roommates about a cute acorn salt and pepper shaker at the start of September and I was shocked when they remembered it and went and bought it for my birthday in November. We were poor and it was so entirely thoughtful.

I guess it's a great gift if it still warms my heart 10 years later.

rachel arnold said...

i married my best friend in the fall, then played in nyc with him for a week. best fall memory EVER.

A Slight Fever said...

One of my fav fall memories is raking leaves with my dad when I was really young. I didn't help at all but he was so sweet and patient. I love those everyday moments that we look back so fondly.

Tara said...

Trying to decide what to be for Halloween! My mom sewed all our costumes which was so much fun :) I remember reading my dad's old comic books and wanted to be Automic Mouse from the 50s. Everyone thought I was Mighty Mouse. I corrected them of course. I was 7 :)

Jingle said...

We used to go to the apple orchard every year as a family to pick apples! That is my favorite fall memory!
