Orange, rust, gold, and brown...

Sometimes I wonder if because I am a child of the 70's if that is a reason I have a great love of brown, gold, orange, rust, and all the other colors of autumn...
Not only was it 1975, but it was NOVEMBER... the most brown, orange, gold, rust, colored month of the year.
I've determined that these are my colors. 
For sure. 
My hands have been busy stitching for family, and for the church. I made a basket full of the above crocheted pumpkins, leaves, and acorns... squeal! for a silent auction for our church to raise money for missions. 
Rust colored nail polish... Indeed. I LOVE it!
My autumn lap quilt that I made last year! I was so happy to bring it out again! 
And of course my box of goodies to decorate. Most of them are handmade, some aren't. I love when I bring out these favorite colors of mine. The world seems a happier place with lighted candles, pumpkins, smells of cinnamon and cloves,  and the soft glow of yellow gold, orange, brown, and rust. 


  1. Hi Chas, I too love fall colors I was born in the month of November also but in the 60's so I am way older than you but those are definately my colors. We live in California and don't reallly have seasons but I love anything fall colored or fall looking. Many of the decor of my home is in fall colors . It is kind of hard to think of what fall would actually be like in a normal 4 season state. Hope to find out real soon. Loved this post and all that you write about. I have a blog but lately its just been so hard to find the time to sit down and write a post. You are very inspiring to me, and your posts always make me smile thanks for that. Praying you have a blessed week ahead of you. Blessings,Joann

  2. Everything looks just lovely. Are you going to offer any of the pumpkins for sale? Blessings, Carolyn in Florida
