Don't forget to have a good time,

but eat and drink in moderation.

However, if you cannot control yourself

and your love of mashed potatoes and gravy, and pumpkin pie,

I wish you

A Happy


(They are on my wish-list for this holiday season, just in case I go overboard after being good and healthy all year!)

So true! Happy Thanksgiving to you. said...

Is this you? Looking GOOD!

RH Carpenter said...

Absolutely, Bill, that's me with my Spanx on - but you don't want to see me without their assistance to tuck in all the rolls....rolls, yum...and butter...and another piece of pumpkin pie! Glad this holiday only comes once a year!
Barb, we all can use a little help when we overindulge :) hee hee

Went to buy some new jeggings to go inside my boots today but could not get into 16's. I sure need that wonderful looking under garment and its only going to get worse with Christmas coming and all that food to share.

Well done with your first 20 min sketches. You seem so busy even working on the blue flowers and the warm hearts.

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Teresa! You rock, I'm just playing here - you know that isn't me. For one thing this model thin chick on the page doesn't need Spanx! haha
Thanks, Jeanette and Joan. Jeanette, I'm trying to copy your style of painting with dabs of color in watercolor - I sure wish I could see you do your portraits in person so I could try this with a better foundation but I do love the style.
Joan, yes, I think the squirrels and birds may get 1/2 of the pumpkin pie - better to waste it than to eat it and have to worry about the tonnage! haha

Nick, that's your grandma? Wow! Looking good for an older lady :) hee hee
