For November, I’ve chosen the color Brown. It reminded me of rich earth and harvests, chilly days and giving thanks for our bounty and blessings.

Brown is the color of hearth and home — of dried herbs and stone-ground bread and freshly baked cookies. It represents all of the nurturing, life-sustaining, down-to-earth qualities of terra firma, the very shade of earth itself. Just as in the sturdy oak, brown represents roots, a steady, stable source of security, comfort, and normalcy. It is the color of fertile soil and plowed earth, buckskin and rawhide, weathered redwood, bison and mustang, frontier land — rugged and outdoorsy. It is pine cone and bracken, chipmunk and acorn, beaver and doe. Brown is considered a classic shade of solid substance. ~Leatrice Eiseman, “Brown: Earthy and Real,” Colors For Your Every Mood, 1998
