Falling into Autumn holidays …

With the cooler weather seeming to take up permanent residence, hopes of an Indian Summer start to wither with my garden … While I love Fall, I hate losing Summer – closing up the pool; moving flower pots, baskets, decorations and windchimes to storage, as our Michigan winters destroy anything left to the elements; thoughts of the soon-to-come Winter hibernation …

But I do love Fall – for those few short weeks – just warm enough during the day with cool nights, the vibrant colors of the leaves changing, thoughts of apple cider and doughnuts … Just last week I made several fall/’homey’-scented soy candles – Pumpkin Cinnamon, Sugared Pecans, Creme Brule, Butterscotch.  My studio and the house are full of wonderful scents … the kids came home from school thinking that I had been baking … so silly! 🙂

But with cool weather here, Halloween and Thanksgiving just around the corner, time to think of my next Autumn-colors bowl …

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
