For the love of leaves!

I can't seem to get enough of leaves these days. Maybe it's the thought of fall coming to visit soon or the fond memories I have of fun fall activities. Whatever it may be, I just can't get my mind off of leaves...the plated kind.
What are plated leaves you ask? Well, they are real natural leaves that are dried, painted with copper then electroplated in silver, copper or gold. The result is beautiful!

I stumbled upon these wonderful leaves while attending the Bead and Button show two years ago. I just found them in my drawer and have been captivated by them since.
