Pumpkin Carving

'Happy Face' at night.

My hubby carves a pumpkin every Halloween.
First he draws a face on the pumpkin with a pencil.

This year it was a design I drew from a photo I'd seen
in an ad. Last year's pumpkin was his original design.
You can see it on my side panel of my blog.

He carves it with a paring knife. No special tools, altho this year we
considered buying them but didn't.

Here is the finished pumpkin. I named it 'Happy Face'.

Here is 'Happy Face' all jazzed up.
You can buy this photo as a card,
print or poster at Red Bubble.
I'm linking with My Romantic Home for Show And Tell Friday.

He's completely gorgeous. I'd love to do that here but those pumpkins are upwards of $30 in the shops at Halloween time here in Australia.

Happy Halloween. I've given up on carving pumpkins myself, but I love looking at the piece of art that you've created.
