Pumpkins and Gifts

My son, Aiden, picked out this funky little green pumpkin. I think it's adorable. It needed to be painted! I tried out a new (to me) watercolor technique: spattering. I don't use it often because I worry about it being too messy but it really added some character to this pumpkin.

It's November and a Friday so here are a few more simple gifts that I am thankful for: beautiful Fall weather, a funky little green pumpkin, new job opportunities, excitement for the holidays, dinner out with my husband, baby kisses, emails from friends, a printer that doesn't smudge, battery operated candles for jack-o-lanterns, chocolate. What are you thankful for today?
