We’re enjoying a late Autumn in the Great Plains today. There are still a few leaves on the trees, so the colors are still hanging on by a thread. All the remaining yellows and oranges give off a slight richness to otherwise bland Autumn weather. The colors also inspire me to try some new ideas on for size.
A cob of blue Indian Corn is surrounded by bright grasses and flowers in a base of a souvenir vase from Mexico. The blend reflects the cultural mix of my town.
The hand turned coffee mug sets the tone for a more spritely, subtle Autumn themed personal gift. The abundance of greenery is accented with orange flowers and a tiny gourd.
The orange of the antique slag glass bowl carries through to the variations of a bountiful, but small Fall themed table accent arrangement. Miniature fruits and veggies add a fun touch.
The vintage red McCoy Ewer vase energizes a more abstract coloring and shape design treatment. It presents an Autumn sensibility to sparseness of quantity with the last of the year’s Earth-tones.
I hope you can enjoy some late November colors in your area this weekend.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Albert Camus. “Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.”
