Just Messin Around






I worked diligently most of the day painting the exterior of our house. No, it's not finished, but I took a break anyway and took a few pictures. Here are the real sugar skulls I've been working on and also some felt sugar skulls. How do you like this very cheerful weed? My new yellow yard shoes with ladybugs that I got for my birthday. And Howdy enjoying a sugar skull.

Time to get workin' on the Day of the Dead stuff. I had a co-worker who used to make wonderful little DotD icons every year, along with sugar skulls. I don't get nearly as creative, but it's always nice to acknowledge a healthy appreciation of ancestors and such. The skulls are great--yummy and funny at the same time.

YUMMY sugar skulls Christie! Love the felt ones too and they would make great ornaments for a Halloween tree. I would like one of each please! Hehe ;-)

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

SpOOky Hugs,

Hey Christie, thanks for stopping by! Did you know that the Illustration Friday topic this week is "Sugary?" You should post these yummy skulls!

I'm impressed by your menagerie too-- two cats are sometimes more than I can handle.
