Nature never fails to inspire.

A recent project was to create  a tiny lantern child, a project for our craft group.Her outfit seemed to come together without forethought .

A small wood and wire doll dressed in red,orange and yellow, carrying a felt lantern.
Carrying the flame

Once complete came the realisation that  her colours not only match the glow of her lantern but also reflects colours that are presently in nature.

Red,gold and orange  are present in turning leaves, aloe flowers and red hot poker lilies, glow and warm the soul, a reminder that soon the landscape will be wrapped in winters grey mantle.
