Pumpkin Challenge

It’s pumpkin carving time in the Chicken coop. Every year littleb scours the internet for ideas and I do my best to duplicate his choice. Some years are more successful than others. This year’s skull pumpkin was a challenge. It was more challenging to get a good shot of it. I got a new laptop recently and we can’t figure out how to get the camera out of selfie mode, which makes getting a good angle difficult. I’ll google it later. Happy Friday to all and to all a Good Friday!WIN_20171027_07_33_21_Pro

    I have pumpkin envy. That is impressive. The last time I carved a pumpkin, it had triangle eyes, a triangle nose and a gap-toothed grin.

      Hi Bella Rum-there’s nothing like a classic pumpkin. I suggest it every year. But thank you:-)

    Awesome job!! Littleb looks pretty happy with it 🙂

    I am so terrible at carving pumpkins the last few years we had them I just drew on them. And it was just the regular triangles. So, so terrible. But one year I bought a bunch of little pumpkins and two larger ones and made a pumpkin head family. Decorated them with sunglasses, toothpicks for hair, red marker for lipstick, etc., and triplet babies with soothers and baby bonnets. That was the most fun I ever had at Halloween. ha ha Tapped into my crafty side, I guess.

    That’s an amazing carving job. We have a pumpkin sitting on out porch, but my guess is that it won’t get carved at all, and after Halloween it will be donated to Zsuzs’ pit bull Timber, who will merrily chew it to bits…

        Well, you never know, Doug, you might have a moment of unbridled Halloween enthusiasm, but if not, you’re still doing a good thing. I recently saw an article about purple pumpkins. If you paint a pumpkin purple and put it on your porch, it signals to trick-or-treaters that you have nut free snacks. I always buy nut free candy just in case, but I don’t dare to put out a purple pumpkin because who knows where that candy is processed and whether they also have candy with nuts made there, as well. I guess it’s trick or treater beware at our house.
