I’ve had a really lousy week so far so I decided to cheer myself up with some lemon and orange slices. No, not the fruit and no, not the candy that looks like the fruit but the polymer clay cane variety. I’ve been thinking of making a fring-y bracelet for awhile now, using lemon, orange, lime and pink grapefruit cane slices, and today was the perfect day to start that project!
I took a break around mid-day and went for a nice long walk. What a beautiful warm fall day. It was so peaceful and quiet except for the swishing sound of my sneakers on the newly fallen golden leaves. I love their sweet dry smell. The sky was so blue and the trees were ablaze in orange, red, gold and maroon. As I looked up at the trees, I could see the leaves falling down like a soft rain whenever the breeze kicked up. A perfect moment…
Orange is my favorite color, so this image instantly cheers me. Thank you!
Me too! I don’t know why so many people don’t like it. It’s so warm and beautiful. You’re welcome, Steph!
Ooooh — I love these!!! (And I am not even an orange person)

Orange is one of those colors that doesn’t ‘look good’ on many people, maybe that explains why a lot of folks don’t like it……It looks good on me (I’ve been told!) because I am an ‘autumn’ (remember the book Color Me Beautiful and how everyone had a color ‘season’?) Your fruit slices will look great in a bracelet, Karen. You will have to post a photo when it is finished !
Very true, Dora. I don’t think that I look good in orange but I love its friendly warmth anyway! lol 😉
I’ll definitely post photos of this newest fring-y bracelet. I was thinking that it would be a good art project to bring warmth into the cold, snowy days ahead.
