I walked to school in the autumn mist this morning … I love this time of year ! The leaves are all on the turn … the berries are heavy on the bushes, and the morning air smells so much fresher than it does in the summer.
I am feeling the influence of autumn in my work too… I am feeling drawn to the wonderful, scrummy and warm shades of glass…. Adobe… Stoneground … Olive green … GORGEOUS deep red browns … rich and vibrant shades of Orange .. they’re all just so delicious ! And, of course, the all sit SO well with my little viking creations too !
The kids… well mostly my daughter, Poppy, are looking forward to all the fun that Autumn brings… Halloween … Bonfire night … fireworks and sparklers with Grandad. I love it too… probably more than they do !
I especially love the chilly nights, as it gives me the perfect excuse to light a fire and chill out in the evenings
Anyway.. I am rambling somewhat here .. so for those who don’t really know me, here’s a quick introduction :
My name is Lesley
I am 39 years old
I am a mum of 3 children … aged 9, 12, and 19
I am a self employed glass bead maker / glass artist .. whatever you want to call it
I live with my partner in the Midlands, United Kingdom
I have 2 beautiful cats
I have far too much housework to do
I wish I had more time to enjoy things like reading, or baking with the kids
I’m originally from the Peak District area, and still miss it like crazy
I fully intend to grow old disgracefully
I must lose some weight
I have the best friends anyone could ask for
I play World of Warcraft ( and yes you can stop rolling your eyes at me… it’s awesome fun)
Anyway .. just to tie up my opening ramble, here are just a few pictures that kind of describe me, in a rambly, roundabout way …..
