Somewhere between the bright shades of Summer and the rich hues of Autumn, my world turned gray !!!
Rain , rain and more rain !!! Where is the Sun ???
An occasional rainy day with a cup of tea and a good book can be very pleasant.
But, weeks of rain seemed like too much !!!
I like color ! I am inspired by color !
Lately each new day is cloudy ,wet and gray .
Even my water loving tomatoes are looking sick and sad .
But , something rather neat is happening .
Fungus are amung us... LOL!
All this rain seems to be just what fungi love.
Magical mushrooms of every size and shape are popping up everywhere. It's like an alien invasion!
I took advantage of a break in the down pour to take some photos of the weird and wonderful shapes.
While I was taking pictures, I realized I was having a color inspiration ! Or maybe a lack of color inspiration to be exact .
All those gray ,white and creamy tones looked very nice against the wet black mulch.
Nice and neutral color blends!!!
Of course !!! Why not create some beads in those fun fungi shades!
Neutrals would be perfect for Fall and Winter Fashion .
The accessory equivalent to curling up tea and good book . Something tried, true and sure to please .
So instead of swimming against the current and bringing out all my bright clays on a gray day;
I decided to go with the flow and work with the lovely muted shades all I was seeing all around me .
A restful and welcome pallet.
Just the thing to prepare me for the Holiday color celebrations coming soon!
rest up with some nice neutrals
