Happy Thanksgiving!

Here are my ATCs for November. I wanted to make something that went along with Thanksgiving.
It was good to do something with this wonderful holiday that is so often overshadowed by Christmas. I hope everyone has a wonderful day full of good food, family and friends!

I Want Candy for Lunch

Have you ever had one of your children try to talk you into just letting them eat sweets for lunch? I have. There has been too much candy around my house this week. This paper cut was originally inspired by an ad in an old newspaper. I think it was advertising some kind of kitchen appliance. I started wondering what was really behind the reason that the woman was reclining against the table. I think that she wasn't day dreaming about a new stove but about a day when she could fix a meal without some disgusted protest from some child. I added a border to this one because I love all the decorative borders that newspaper artists threw into the newspaper a hundred years ago for no other reason than to liven it up.
