Trouble with fall is… it’s dark. It’s dark all the time. The day feels like it ends before it really had a chance to be a day. It’s just depressing. This year in Chicago we didn’t have much time to enjoy fall colors. Our fall colors were gray and bleak. Funny how in Hawaii gray is dramatic, whereas here it’s just bleak. Maybe it’s the lack of palm trees.
Anyway, I can’t complain for a whole post, can I. Perhaps to compensate for the lack of beautiful happy fall I updated my collection of fall-themed glaze colors. I am not totally sure what I’m going to do with them yet (maybe I’ll have it figured by next fall ha-ha) but here they are:
Left to right: Indian Summer, Autumn, and Burnt sugar.
I also noticed something cool about Fireluster. I put it on one of my soap dishes expecting a rusty color, and noticed that where it’s really thick it looks more glassy and like a deep beautiful red…
So that’s all I’ve got for you today. Just gotta keep fighting through the rest of fall and winter.
What do you do in the fall to stay motivated when it gets dark and gloomy?
