Back to School & Pink Incantation

It’s September again, and all over the place there are kids going back to school (well, not here in BC, but that’s another story). University and college students are starting new courses, moms (well, some of them) are finding a bit more time on their hands. Back to school time is one of my favorite times of year. I love it when seasons change – and my two favorites are Summer turning into Fall, and Winter into Spring. Well right now we are on the tail end of a beautiful Summer, with just a hint of Fall. There’s that little bit of crispness in the air, it’s not quite so stiflingly hot, and we’ve had some rain. I’m not quite into Boot time but starting to think about wearing leggings again. Boots and leggings and sweaters are some of my favorite things… but that’s a bit of a digression from glass…

Anyhow, I think what I like about Fall is the feeling of new beginnings and new possibilities.

I have a new Etsy shop that I’m promoting. It is a Made to Order catalogue of all of my designs (or at least, the ones I am able and willing to reproduce). I still have loads to add to this store from my current “catalogue” and am always adding new designs as well, but it’s starting to become fairly fleshed out already, so please go visit!

I want to share today some preliminary results another of Val Cox Frit’s new blends – this one is called Pink Incantation. “A richly layered blend of pinks, peaches, willow-green and cranberry. Fuss free. Lovely with silver.” I loved the kind of old fashioned feeling of this blend. It is sort of girly and a bit dainty. Very pretty.
