Happy Halloween!

Penguin and Chicken are all dressed up to wish you a Happy Halloween!
These mini paintings will be added to my Etsy shoppe which will finally be set up next month.

I almost didn't put out my autumnal decor this year, but then I remembered these gourds I painted a few years ago. I realized I missed them, and I didn't want to face a gourdless season.

My thoughts are with those affected by Hurricane Sandy. It warms my heart to hear the stories of people reaching out to aid those in need.

Penguin and Chicken are adorable! I'm glad your Hallowe'en isn't gourdless ;) Great pics, and so thoughtful of you to include the link/prompt for the RC donations.

Thank you, Elizabeth!
I know we can get the East Coast back on it's feet if we all pull together. :)

Dang, after seeing your gourds, I'm sad that I am having a gourdless season. And Oooooh, batman and robin -- er, Penguin and Chicken are wonderful! Hope you had a Happy Halloween, with more treats than tricks. And thanks for the Red Cross info!
