Of mice and jack o' lanterns...

You can get a lot accomplished when there's several feet of snow outside your door and the husband is home to watch the wee one. I finished my previously mentioned owl on the pumpkin sculpture and painted two fun welcome signs, one with a black Percheron and some spring flowers and another with a jack o' lantern and a mouse peeking out of the nose. I suppose they shall both make their way over to Ebay sooner or later!








My daughter, who just turned 4, attempted her first horse drawing this week (I am so proud). Thought I would share. This is a large drawing on a piece of oversized construction paper I taped to the wall. She said the horse has a "million legs" (yikes). There are also some fairies around, Tinker Bell is green and Silver Mist is flying by on the top right. Bother fairies are holding flowers and the large horse has a baby horse with it and a rider.




Don't forget! The Penny Tree Auction starts this weekend. Proceeds will benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Read more about this wonderful work of art here, on the PFATT BLOG. I donated a glittery unicorn heart ornament for the tree.

Love. Every. Single. Thing. About this post! The sculpture: amazing! Love the li'l mousie. And your signs are at their usual wonderful standard (cute to see the little mousie made his way over to the pumpkin in the sign, too!).

Zoe is going to be quite the artist. And, of course horses "have a million legs"...why, fast as they run, they should have that many! :)
