The celebrations has begun ~ Celebrate Color!
As many of y'all know, I am currently residing in Florida, land of the seasons "Hot", "Dang Hot", "Gates of Hell Hot" and "Christmas". Last year I was tickled when Autumn showed up just in time for Christmas. I love changing leaves and the sound of them crunching under your feet... when I lived a bit further north, I would always mark the season by the smell of burning leaves - a scent I honestly love.
Autumn, as far as color palettes go, always means earthy. I tend to gravitate towards deep browns, mossy greens and lush rust tones. Basically, all those gorgeous colors from the Natchez Trace trail on a perfect afternoon drive. If you've never had that experience, please remedy it ~ you'll never forget it or regret it. That is a section of this country that I dearly miss some days.. especially in Autumn.
