Wednesday Vignette – Bejeweled blacktop

So spectacular, yet so fleeting… Beauty is everywhere.

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

    So pretty! The first few fallen look so great — not so attractive when they’re joined by the rest of their fellows, making you busy for an hour or more of raking. 😉

    One of my favorite sights of the season is bejeweled pavement! Can almost smell the fragrance of those beautiful maple leaves from here! My WV contribution is here:

  3. I couldn’t resist sharing a OC&K vignette I came across at Cornell Farms, you know in the interest of drumming up some last minute entries!

      I’m hanging on the deadline, as always. I probably won’t get to in until Friday, but I will do my very best to send something in. It’s such a fun idea!

    Your fall leaves are such a beautiful color, Anna! My WV today is also of a fall leaf.

  5. That is a stunning, vignette, Anna. Your photo composition is lovely! The vignettes all around us are so breathtaking this time of year. Thanks for hosting!

    You’re right, Anna, beauty is everywhere – we just have to be ready to see it. Your photo is simple and remarkable at the same time. I didn’t think my current post showing photos of pumpkin devastation fit the Wednesday Vignette theme but I hope to get back in the groove soon.

    I love a scattering of fallen leaves. Fall is such a dramatic season. I think that’s part of why I love it so much. I’ve finally gotten around to posting another vignette, make that two.

    Absolutely stunning!

    Great minds think alike! I almost posted a very similar picture – it was such a day for fabulous leaf color. But I saw a bit of Julie’s wall and it reminded me of my imagined Oregon – back before I had even moved here:

  10. So pretty! So sad when you have to rake them all up!

    Especially when they’re a soggy, wet mess…
