Fall Art

Fall art is the art of carving pumpkins. This week mon amour carved a pumpkin with
with love in it's eyes.




I don't think it matters what the pumpkin looks like.

Mon amour used a pencil to draw his design.

After he removed the pulp he used a common knife
to carve the face of the pumpkin. No special tools.

Here is the finished love crazy pumpkin.


I put some Halloween polish on it.

Looks cool! I like it. I have been catching up with all the posts I've missed. I love your roses in the rain photos, looks like they are covered in jewels! Love the grey suede slingbacks, but I'm darned sure I couldn't walk in them! Your choc chip cookies look delicious. Many thanks on your comments on the wreaths, yes the flower pot one is unusual, and would look lovely in a garden, or on a shed. Have a lovely weekend, love Linda x

I love the pumpkins
they are just amazing.

I can't wait until we get them into the shops here
we usually have them the week before Halloween.

I hope that you have a lovely weekend.

I am wondering what the weather is like in Southern Calafornia,
must be better than here
because it is damp and raining all week!

Take care
