Autumn is a time of grateful harvest. And at this time of year, the colour orange makes its sudden appearance everywhere, most notably in the form of pumpkins. I have always had an uneasy relationship with this colour but I am slowly warming up to it's irresistible cheerfulness. When it comes in the form of clementines and not just any kind of clementine but the most darling of clementines, then I can do nothing but succumb.
Of course, a pie pumpkin, radiating cheerfulness in its squat roundness, is perfect as a paperweight.
One's imagination can't help but take flight when darling clementines and winsomely chubby pumpkins are paired with aqua vintage typewriters.
Autumn is a time to down tools and take a well deserved rest, as well. What could be more inspirational during the long winter months than to contemplate aged tools with a hard won patina derived from years of honest labour?
Orange makes its appearance again in the russet orange and burnt sienna of corn kernels.
So bring on these slowly lengthening days of coolness and bountiful harvest and let me punctuate them with bursts of gladsome orange.
