{happy october + pale autumn blue}


. . . the soft colours of the recent runway shows — feathery pink, whispy violet, muted coral and ecru — and this week’s calming greens and champagne hues bring dreams of smokey, palest autumn blue, the kind the appears in hazy, early-autumn light . . .

happy october! hope your week has been wonderful so far,

  • This is beautiful. There are so many subtle hues in early October, and again later in the month and into November and December. The smokey blues and violets are particularly delightful. I just interviewed raku artist Richard Foye on Monday, and watching him work with fire and smoke to create beautiful works of art was a wonder. How lucky we are to live in such an incredible world.
