Fall in New York

Fall has finally come to New York.  It was as if almost overnight the temperatures started to descend and the cool breezes began!

One of my most favorite things to do during the Fall is to take long evening walks on Madison and 5th avenue with my husband.

We usually go a few times a week and I just love spending time with him and the feel of the city at night!

Heading down Madison we usually stop at our favorite gelato place, Ciao Bella.  We love this place!!! My husband usually has to have 4 samples before he can decide on one flavor....I on the other hand already know what I want before I go in. I usually choose between blood orange or grapefruit!

Lately on these walks my focus has been the store windows. Since I have been building my Etsy store, I have been paying close attention to this Fall's color choices in fashion.  I am noticing a lot of burnt orange and mustard yellow, as well as the typical colors of Fall, such as beige and brown and even some rust colors as well.  A lot of dark teal's and blue and red with orange are also emerging in this Fall's color palate.

I am especially looking forward to working with the colors red, yellow and orange. These are colors I usually don't create with too often.  Last week I even worked on a piece that was made with red and transparent yellow beads. I really like how bright and Fall it looks to me!
