November 1st means Christmas music at my house…
Since the kids were wee, November 1st has always marked the first day of Christmas music playing at our house. Except when the husband is home-he has this thing about hearing Christmas music before December first! Which means we blast the music until he gets home when he promptly turns it off…and we continue to hum the song we heard last all night ;)
November 1st also marks the day where in the malls in my area, Christmas decor starts going up! And usually I am so very excited for this by the second week of November because the first week of November there are still leaves that remain on a few trees and the backyard is still carpeted with yellow leaves.
I find it interesting this year with more American friends that they still haven’t enjoyed their turkey dinners for Thanksgiving and the season of fall actually lasts longer for them than it does here.
So in light of not wanting fall to end just yet I am offering as MY FIRST GIVEAWAY, two paintings; one which was a commissioned painting (but was the incorrect dimensions and did not fit the clients frame) and the other to help keep some colour around your home!
This quote was done on Artist’s illustration board with light fast pens and water colour paint
