The two sides of autumn--brilliant color and subtle, textured neutrals. We experienced an elegant neutral treasury here a few days ago, juxtaposed with my photos of dry plants (weeds). Today, we are treated to new ones that celebrate a more colorful side of the season (plus a collage of some of my colorful foliage fall photos!)
"Copper Creations" curated by Etsy seller Rebecca of MountainMist Fiberworks celebrates that wonderful orangey-coppery-russet-brown color which is found in leaves, in metal and (obviously!) in the palette of many Etsy artisans right now. In fact, when I peeked at Rebecca's shop, there were many lovely knitted hats and scarves--in wonderful copper shades!
So "Blue is Beautiful" (a definitive statement) and without the blue sky behind these russet fall colors, would the contrast be as exhilarating?? Of course not! and this very blue treasury, curated by PaulaArt, trends toward a deeper, darker collection of blues. Visit her Etsy shop for a very different collection of surprises: wonderful recycled materials turned into whimsical objects.
"Loving the last day of autumn" gathers a collection of mostly subtle colors with dots of brightness, much like the landscape now in the Midwest. It's curated by Etsy Seller CurlynChic whose shop specializes in craft supplies including seasonal rubber stamps that are very cute.
I invite you to click on these treasury images to take a closer look at these lovely collections. Visit the shops of the curators, too. After all, it's never too early to start planning your holiday gift giving....with an emphasis on HAND MADE, of course! Have a great Monday!
