As much as I love fall, it's always tinged with a little sadness at the passing of summer. I've tried to console myself this year playing with some beautiful hand painted maple leaf buttons from Susan Clarke Originals. The leaf in the macrame bracelet above had lots of rusty orange in it and I paired it with a neutral cord and shiny cut seed beads. I had another leaf with much softer color in it that I paired with my trusted matte metallic khaki iris beads. I think after much debate the bottom one came out ahead in the "which one do you like more" voting, but it was close.
After getting a little bored with the neutrals, I went in search of some color. The colors people typically picture when they think of autumn are mostly warm colors and I have trouble with those, so these are my colors of fall this year:
The coppery colors give a nod to autumn (and the leaves themselves) but I gotta be me, so of course I had to include some shades of turquoise.
The colder weather also has me thinking about firing up the oven for some homemade bread or putting on a big pot of chili. How about you? Is the weather changing where you are?
