NEW PAINTING AND HALLOWEEN DECOR!

I know it isn't even Halloween yet, but I wanted to share a picture of my Thanksgiving painting--Give Thanks. It is a big 11"X14" stretched canvas and it has lots of earthy colors accented with antique gold metallic. It has lots of crackle and antiquing for a very primitive look. Check out the listing for more close up pics ( link is above). It has a thick textured gloss finish that gives the whole thing the look and feel of old leather. This one will be hard to part with because it would make such a fun Thanksgiving decoration. This auction starts at only one penny!

Now back to Halloween! We finally got outside to decorate this weekend since it was so beautiful outside! These are just a few of our things we set up outside. They look cool with all the lights shining on them at night, but the sun was so pretty I just had to shoot some daytime pics. I hope everyone has a fantastic week! I am trying very hard to avoid getting the H1N1 virus at my school, although I am quite surrounded by it. A little boy in my class told me that his brother was sick with "that Pig Flu"(his words), and then he promptly sneezed in my face! lol Oh well, I guess my immunities are pretty good by now!
