 I introduced a new bread to the Artisan Breads section of the shop:
It's Whole Wheat bread, made with coconut milk and all-natural Washington raspberry honey! (Instead of 2% or whole milk and/or granulated sugar).
I also started adding some autumn-style jewelry!           
This is the Hanna's Lace Necklace, named for a character on one of my favorite TV shows! :) It's pretty popular.

Next up is some more antiquated-looking earrings with a twist of boho: The Aria's Signature Earrings.
And - drumroll, please - introducing the beginning of my fall jewelry collection!

Pictured above, you see the Limited Edition Pumpkin Charm Bracelet. It's definitely perfect for this time of year!

Next up: Limited Edition Pumpkin Smash Earrings. These dainty little things look like a real pumpkin, surrounded by a root and stem, articulated by tiny colored beads, and one large wooden bead on each earring.
Last, but definitely not least: The Limited Edition Pumpkins of the Earth bracelet!  This sweet bracelet is a perfect hostess gift or accessory for any outfit!
