|Here's the mug of violas in progress alongside a pansy painting I did a while ago|
As I was working on my painting, I was thinking that for sure it was the last bouquet of the season. Then yesterday, I found a bunch of verbena still growing in a pot that I usually abandon outside all winter. There was enough for not just one bouquet, but two! Talk about late garden gifts.
I have spent more time indoors than outdoors this week. I have been working hard on converting my paintings into prints and have added a few more to my Etsy store. Here's one of them:
You see we live in Canada and we celebrate our Thanksgiving in October! It shows you what a big impact the U.S. celebration has on us. Chloé is not a kid who gets confused easily. We see the American Thanksgiving mentioned on cooking shows, in magazines, on blogs and on television shows to the point that we feel that we are celebrating along with you!
To all of my U.S. readers, good luck with all of your preparations, travel and celebrations. I will be offering a special in my Etsy shop over the weekend, so be sure to have a look!
