Sunday Sketches - Too Much of a Good Thing

Too much of a good thing
can be WONDERFUL
I love this quote by Mae West.
 I was thinking about it yesterday when we opened our third bag of candy corn...
Yes, three bags in one week...
Usually during October, I keep a big, glass jar of candy corn in the kitchen. 
With a house full of kids and friends coming by all week, we've gone through three bags of the stuff, already!
But, oh, it is so very wonderful! Don't you think?
I am sharing this sketch with my friends over at Sunday Sketches....See you there!

LOL!! The very reason I DON'T buy candy corn and am resisting buying any candy until next Sunday. The longer it is in my house, the fatter I become!

Great sketch and fabulous new header for Hallowe'en!

Maggie said...

I love this sketch, she's like a cheerleader for candy corn!
I dressed up three of my grandkids as candy corn about seven years ago. For me, candy corn just means Halloween!
