Announcing..........2007 Autumn Colorways!

I always go a little overboard for Autumn, but it's the season of color! This year I tried to bring selection that were fresh,bold, and crisp, and a little bit different.

If you've been with me the past 2 seasons, you'll know I always try to have at least one 'Pumpkin' theme colorway, and one 'Apple' colorway; Pumpkins and Apples being of quintessential importace to Autunm symbology.

So it seems fitting to introduce you to the Pumpkin and Apple of 2007 first:

"Sugar Treat"

The pumpkin variety this colorway takes its name from is a small, smooth pumpkin with bright orange flesh. It has a long curved handle and is quite ornate.
The spirit of this pumpkin is embodied in this colorway with its sweet colors: crisp greens, bright peachy orange, rosy blush, and soft lilac.

"Granny Smith"

Ahhh tart apples...what else is there to say? This Granny Smith colorway has 3 apple greens, white apple flesh and 2 browns, representing stem and seeds.


A friend of mine told me Incantate looks very Collegiate; depends on who you support, I suppose! Burgandy, gold, smoke, and black.

"Matvey the Cat"

A colorful Octoberish colorway: blazing orange, dark yellow, black, silver and soft green.


Black, purple, lavender, silver and white, with a touch of "boo".

And Finally,

"Jack Frost"

Not in the least bit as harsh as Old Man Winter, Jack Frost is genteel and friendly with celery, periwinkle and black.
