I am a sun-child, a summer worshipper to the core. Yet each year, as Summer begins to fade and Autumn takes her place on Mother Earth's stage, it is difficult to resist falling absolutely in love with the fiery winds of Fall. Her chilly breath grips our collective souls as she dances through the trees, engulfing every branch in her gold-crimson flames. Autumn is an artist of harmony and balance - she paints with a flaming palette on a canvas of frost.
My sister and I decided to do a Fall Photoshoot in Edworthy Park here in Calgary. If any of you YYC-dwellers haven't been to this park - GO IMMEDIATELY, before all the leaves are gone! Edworthy park in Autumn is a Pumpkin Spice Daydream of red, orange, yellow and green, where every corner you turn invites you into an entirely new world so colourful and magical that you wouldn't have been shocked to see fairies having a tea party. It was the absolute perfect place to frolic with my sis and get some Forest Fairy shots of us wearing my newest Goddess Crown creation!
This Crown was inspired by the magestic colours of Autumn. Both sides have a different feathers and designs, making it like two crowns in one! The feathers on it were all found with care, as always...
Peacock - feathers given to me by a local farmer who raises peacocks
Pheasant - a taxidermy bird I found at an antique shop in BC, upcycled and given a new life
Crane - gathered along the riverbank in Saskatoon by a dear friend
Grouse - unfortunately killed by a friends dog, but upcycled and given new life
The Third Eye Stone on this Crown is a shimmering Blue Goldstone, reminiscent of a starry night sky. Draping down the sides are layers of red Jasper, blue Pheasant and green Senegal Parrot feathers, and lava stones that absorb essential oils (if you want some delicious scents to play around you!) Carved wooden leaf pendants perfectly finish this whimsical Autumn piece.
Let me know your thoughts! The crown is for sale and will be available in my store shortly. Email me if you have any questions, and enjoy the colours outside my friends. You're never too old to play in the leaves!
