A Month of Orange: Silk Wreath
What a joy it is to be able to be outside this time of year! Today skies were blue, the weather was moderate, and the trees are starting to turn just a bit.
My orange for today is an old silk wreath I hang inside on a door with colored glass. I like Halloween, but I tend to put out decorations that are just seasonal, not much that is meant specifically for a holiday. That's not counting my plastic light up pumpkin, of which I am unreasonably fond.
Our house is full of harvest gold. When we moved in in 1990 I was wild to get rid of it, but after a while I just gave up and embraced it. At least this time of year the old fashioned color looks good - or at least appropriate.
