Fall/Holiday Season 2019

Posted on August 22, 2019 at 6:50 AM

Hello Everyone,

It’s been a gorgeous summer in the town of Kincardine, Ontario, here on the shores of Lake Huron. Last week my son and I took a few days to go camping at nearby Inverhuron Provincial Park. I booked our site at the last minute. It was the last one available in the whole park. I admit, I was a little concerned. Would it end up being naked of trees? Would it be directly beside a smelly outhouse or the banging doors of a busy comfort station? “Full sun. No shade” said the online description. I booked it anyway and we packed up and headed over. To our delight we ended up with a lovely, private spot, surrounded by fragrant cedars and pines, almost right on the beach! There was nothing but a wilderness trail between our campsite and the shining blue water. Knowing that it would be rocky, we remembered to bring our water shoes. We swam and hiked and biked and swam some more, then built our campfire and sat under the stars quietly chatting, roasting marshmallows and sipping hot chocolate.

We love living in Kincardine. We’re at the beach almost every day, all year round. We swim, walk the dog, sit to watch the sunset or drive down to watch the storms roll in. We dress accordingly, lately needing nothing but shorts and t-shirts, our feet bare. Soon, though, the mornings will be chilly with the mist rolling in off the lake. The evenings will be windy and cool. We’ll pull cozy sweaters over our heads and warm woolen hats down over our ears. We’ll stuff our hands into our pockets and our feet into our hiking boots and walk down to appreciate the wildness of our off-season beach.

On a cool afternoon I put a batch of cookies in the oven. Brian has a roast going in the slow-cooker. Delicious smells drift down the stairs into my studio. I sip a cup of tea and nibble a cookie as mellow folk music rolls around the room. Autumn settles in.

And so, it’s time again to discuss colours to follow the changing of the season. This fall look for shades of deep burgundy, amethyst and forest green. Also find honey and bronze, with a hint of smokey-grey. I will be teaming denim blue with copper and rusty brown, accented with silver. I’ll also have my classic charcoal with black and silver and, if there is time, I will include a group in cranberry red and possibly another in rich autumn orange with hints of teal, rust and denim blue. We’ll see.

As always, I look forward to connecting with many of you in the coming months. Please see my 'Coming Events' tab for a list of shows that I'll be attending over the 2019 Fall/Holiday season.

Until we meet again,

Have a wonderful fall season,


Rachel Joy VanRooyen.
