Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday October 30, 2009 as we present "Colors of Autumn"

Autumn bursts into a seasonal symphony of color. With swirling leaves of crimson, amber, and gold against a background of crisp blue sky, it excites our senses and invites us to grab hold… before it slips away.

This is a season of celebration, meant to be shared with family and good friends. There are family dinners at tables covered with vintage cloths embroidered with the colors of fall. Time spent together carving pumpkins and decorating with colorful gourds. Weekend afternoons are spent winding through corn mazes, and trips to the apple orchard. Cool crisp evenings and long walks, enjoying all that the season offers before moves into winter.

Nature’s display mingles with the scent of fall. Pies made with fresh apples baking in the oven, cinnamon and spiced tea steeping in a vintage teapot on the counter and marshmallows toasting over a crackling fire. The crisp cool air that rushes in when you open the front door refreshes and excites the senses.

The changing fall foliage provides inspiration for our indoor and outdoor decorating. We add accents from an autumn palette of copper, rust, green, gold and pink to highlight forgotten nooks and crannies. We warm up your our homes with the colors of falling leaves… orange, brown and yellow. Maybe a fall wreath hanging in the entranceway, a needlepoint cushion stitched with rustic fall colors, a pumpkin spiced candle, or a pretty fall bouquet displayed on a side table.
The colors of autumn pervade our quiet alone times too. We start knitting projects with yarn of warm russets and reds, crimson and gold. We stitch quilts with beautiful fabrics that remind us of swirling leaves and autumn’s irresistible allure. Perhaps an attempt at keeping the autumn colors just a little longer.
