what? you don’t scoop out the pumpkin snot with a pretty antique spoon? so uncivilized!
we decided to be ahead of the game and carve our pumpkins last week!
the kids drew pictures on their pumpkins and we carved away.
this little monkey will be very appropriately dressed this year… just wait – easiest no-sew costume ever!
silas is such a mommy’s boy, gentle and loving, always doting on me…
er… not! these outtakes made me crack up! this is sooo my reality – si is a total lover boy, but so crazy wild – he kills me!
lily’s polka dot pumpkin (so very lily), silas’ pirate pum[kin, and gracie’s cat silhouette (all her drawing).
we enjoyed these beautiful pumpkins for exactly ONE night. then we went out of town and…
no. no one stole our pumpkins and smashed them in the street. that would’ve been less disgusting.
instead we came home to 3 piles of moldy, oozing, mush on our porch. the pumpkins had all collapsed and festered while we were gone. so disappointing, so gross.
no more early bird for me! i’m going back to procrastinating next year and we’ll do the carving just before halloween. stinkin’ pumpkins.
in other, less moldy, news:
i added more posy pins to my shop and spent this afternoon cutting tiny pouches and monster posies for more bloom bags. my wrists hurt!
