Autumn is here!

I am seasonally challanged. But it is cool here now, actually it is cold by southern standards. I've been in my wind cheater for 2 days now. I know, I know by your hardy northern standards, 50F in the morning is still a balmy day. But for me it is coooold.


So, I unloaded my kiln this morning and I noticed that all but one thing I had in there was in autumn colours. Just one small teal button in a decidedly deep, autumn friendly colour. It is official, it is autumn! Well, until we get another streak of 90F weather. Which I am sure is just around the corner.


This is a little sampling of a few of the goodies that came out. See? Autumn, it is, all decidedly an autumn pallete.

And just in the spirit of total honesty and complete disclosure. Here is an OOOOps. Now I know that these Christmas ornaments need to be hung on larger rods. That's why I made them last year. But lo and behold, I put them on regular rods and see those sagging hangers? Well this is not good. Seven went in, 5 are salvagable, and 2 are glued together like siamese twins. Oh well, at least Christmas is a few months off. I've still got time to enjoy the lovely cool autumn. My favourite season of all.

Gorgeous fall leaves and acorns! I'm starting to get in the fall mood. I love all that you are doing! :)

SummersStudio said...

Thanks, Erin. I really admire all of your leafy things as well!

Love the goodies! They came out great! I love all of the leaves - they are super :o) I'm glad I snagged my little autumn treats earlier today...Looks like they will go quickly...

And I know what you mean about a "different" definition of cool...It was 64 this morning, which isn't cold but is a nice change from 80 at 6:30 in the morning...Of course, my Schnauzer thinks 64 is cold - she was snuggled between Thomas and I on top of the bed this morning...Pretty soon, she'll want to tunnel under the covers again :o)

Funny thing, Katie. Alice, who is a lot bigger than a schnauser has been sneaking into the bed, and under the covers. It must be cold. And she snores!

You are putting me in the mood to drink hot cider. The leaves are so pretty and the acorns are so sweet!

LeAnn, the acorns are so cute! And the leaves look like a gust of wind blew them in from outside!! Wonderful!!
And now you have me wondering what you will be showing us around Christmas...

SummersStudio said...

Leslie, it is about time for those hot autumn drinks. I love home pressed cider.

Renate, thanks and I've got a couple of winter things on the make. But it never gets to be winter here but for a few days. So I just have to think about my days in the north where it is winter for far too long.

Yes ladies, can we Pleeeease not speak of winter yet! It was 81 degrees here today and I LOVED IT! Winter lasts forever here.

LeAnn , this is such a pretty picture in itself of your fall items, they look yummy, the colors are sooo rich!
I hope you have better luck next time on the Christmas thing!

Love those acorns!!!

SummersStudio said...

Thanks, Cristi. I hope they aren't too cute. It's hard to make a not cute acorn.

The acorns are darling. But, I may have to hate you just a teeny tiny bit for your 50F weather! It was 91 at my house at 6 PM last night! I am SOOO done with the hot weather.

Candace said...

WOW. That first photo is heartbreakingly beautiful. How I love acorns, a good thing as they are all around me ... goodness, what treasures your other pics show you with.

Can't wait to see what else you make/do/inspire!!!
