A New Agenda

I was sitting at my work desk yesterday. painting more black and orange, when I suddenly stopped and asked myself "WHY"??!!!! It is the middle of October and time to move on!! So, happily, I'm packing up all of the unfinished Halloween projects and will save them until next year. I have the color brown out for only a few Thanksgiving pieces while my red and green patiently wait their turn.
A friend came over a few weeks ago to paint a new design with me. 
Primitive Nativity 
I can't take full credit for this as it was originally a tree ornament made by another artist (whom I can't remember since the pattern is ancient, sorry). I enlarged it so it could stand and be seen! I painted it very primitively, holding myself back from painting rosy cheeks, and really like the way it turned out.
Our OFG Team (Old Farmhouse Gathering) is getting ready to launch another great GIVEAWAY promotion! It is very similar to the 'Turkey Trot' that we had so if you want to participate, make sure you sign up for an Etsy account on www.etsy.com. Super easy peasy to do! I'll have more information in the next week or so when we begin our advertising.
Hope your days are happy!
Stay tuned!
Vicky

And thanks to your creativity, I get to leave all my black and orange out for several more weeks! I would think it would be hard to have to think that far ahead of the seasons, or it would be for me! I tend to not pay attention and get caught off-guard...a lot. :)

I always move out the Halloween stuff Nov.1 but keep out the fall until Dec. 1, then comes the Christmas decor. Habit, I love fall. :) I'm sure I painted that ornament at one time in original form! :) So cute, great idea to enlarge it and show it off, so cute!
