Thanksgiving Centerpiece, ink and watercolor, 5x7.5 in

Thanksgiving Centerpiece, ink and watercolor, 5×7.5 in

My sister Marcy hosted our Thanksgiving dinner and my niece Sophie made the stunning table centerpiece that my sketch above doesn’t do justice to. We added a new tradition to our Thanksgiving dinner: The thrift-shop Tacky Holiday Sweater Contest (below).

Mine was no doubt the ugliest but Robin’s (on the right) got extra points for being ill-fitting. It’s too bad you can’t see Nilla the dog’s lovely sweater, complete with jingle bells and ornaments. She only looks like a giant because of being closer to the camera. Britney (center) got extra credit for her Walmart faux-patent-leather skin-tight leggings to go with her Vegas-grandma-style sweater.

    • Haha! She actually doesn’t mind since it means she’s getting outside (though when we were having freezing weather, even wearing a sweater she was hesitant to go out (as was I!)
