The Season of Friendship…In Color

Our leaves don’t change color in the fall, at least not significantly.  There aren’t even that many deciduous trees in Hawaii.  Sure, the plumeria tree’s leaves thin out quite a bit in the winter, but you seldom see that bare-branch look you get on the Mainland.  I recall flying through Dallas-Fort Worth airport one year, and looking out the window as we took off I thought there must have been some sort of blight that caused all the trees to die.  It took me half the flight to figure out that it was just winter.  And yes, I grew up on the mainland and I even did my share of raking leaves once I became a homeowner.

Last autumn my husband and I were in New Hampshire and we really enjoyed the beautiful colors despite the fact that it snowed on us MULTIPLE times in October (and yes, I am still taking that personally).  We won’t be flying to the East Coast this year – it’s a very long flight – so any leaf colors I’ll see will be on my craft table:

Season of Friendship In Color

  • Season of Friendship and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
  • Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizazz card stock
  • Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizazz Classic ink pads
  • Crop-a-dile and Jumbo brads
  • Pear Pizazz ribbon and Hemp Twine

I love our In Colors for 2010-2011.  They’re such distinct, unique colors but they have an intensity that works really well together.

  1. Hi There:

    I live in Upper New England and Autumn is my favorite time of year.
    Not only are the trees spectacular but the fresh air and the smell of wood burning fireplaces.
    A nice warm sweater and blanket with a hot cup of tea or cocoa and life is good…
    I can personally live without the snow….First snowfall is always exciting but that is about it!!!
    Thanks for reminding me it’s just around the corner and I can’t wait 🙂
    ps: thanks for sharing all your beautiful work.
