Strange Find

It was a strange and wonderful day yesterday. It was weirdly warm. It's rare for the temperature to reach almost 80 here in November.

The leaves are just past their peak in color and half of them have fallen to the ground. In the piles of all that color I found this very unnatural leaf. It was sitting on top of a carpet of crazy red and orange maple leaves.

It's about 2 1/2 inches long and made with hundreds of iridescent yellow, glass, seed beads.
It's probably from some antique French beaded bouquet - but how did it ever end up where it did.
I guess everything has to be somewhere.

Two of them would make a great pair of earrings.

A milkweed leaf doing it's best to look like its fancy, French cousin.
