A few weeks ago my very sweet friend Terri requested that I try my mushrooms and gnomes in earthy colors to match the rest of my woodland beads. I hadn't thought about it before but once she said it I could immediately see them in my head. Little gnomes in goldenrod jackets and leaf green hats. Mushrooms in forest fresh green and tiny charms with mustard yellow mushrooms on light blue backgrounds. So adorable for fall! Thank you Terri!
And speaking of fall, I've also added a golden yellow addition to Willow Petals headpins and pendants. They remind me of fall leaves. These would look great with my Golden Branches Disk beads.
I'm so ready for fall. And for the first time in 10 years I will get to see the leaves change colors. You know that is going to inspire some autumn colored creations later in the season. I can't wait for apple cider, getting pumpkins at the farmers markets, wrapping up in woolly scarves. I can't wait to see that first snowflake of the season.
I know, it's August and I'm pushing it. But I've been baking in Texas for way to long. I need a dream and right now that dream involves a snowflake seen through a steamed up glass window pane, a mug of cocoa in my hand and my feet in some crazy fuzzy slippers. Ah to dream...
Have you had enough of summer or are you still hoping to squeeze out a few sun-drenched beach filled days?
