Inspiration found at the Harbor of Grand Marais, Minnesota

It is a northern village located on the shores of Lake Superior, and a vibrant, bustling town. The population was 1,351. Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes of North America. We drove here from Duluth, MN and I was amazed by how large Lake Superior is. It seems to go on forever. It is actually the size of South Carolina!

I went there with my husband and son.  We were in the area to celebrate my son's 29th birthday with a long weekend in the "wilderness".  Our first day took us on a walk along the shores of the harbor to the lighthouse.

The water is so clear you can see through to the bottom. I spotted this pretty leaf floating in the lake. The leaves are starting to turn here. The color reminded me of a pair of ceramics that I purchased from the Marsha Neal Studio.

Reddish Brown Ceramic Earrings by BayMoonDesign
They are reddish brown textured ceramics. I added a copper accent bead and used copper wire to wrap around the ceramics and add the copper beads.  Copper ear wires were a natural choice.  I love how the reddish brown color of the ceramics looks with the copper. The reddish brown ceramic earrings are available for purchase at my BayMoonDesign shop.

I think this poems reflects the season to the earrings and photo of the leaf.
