Fake ... But Adorable Pumpkin

~ Since I live out in the country and we don't get trick-or-treaters,
I don't usually carve a pumpkin.

~ It just seems like a waste, I mean... I always think of the
pumpkin for the trick-or-treaters, don't you?

~ But I've decided, I am going to go buy a pumpkin and carve
it and have it for ME to enjoy. 

~ Until I get my "REAL" pumpkin carved and set out on my porch
for ME to enjoy.... this one will do inside my house to help remind me
that it's Halloween time of year.

I bought the stand at the antique store for $8,
I have never seen another one like it.
It is so cute that I could not resist to buy it,
I could tell it was really old. 
However, for me, the older, the better (on some things).

I put the pumpkin head on it and made him a pumpkin man.
I have it on a timer so it comes on and off by itself every evening.

~ While I am out running errands today,
I will purchase a real pumpkin and carve it for fun and for ME to enjoy.

~ I once read a poem about pumpkins and found it on-line, here it is:
A woman was asked by a co-worker,
“What is it like to be a Christian?”

The co-worker replied, “It is like being a pumpkin.
God picks you from the patch, brings you in,
and washes all the dirt off of you.

Then he cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.,
and then He carves you a new smiling face and puts
His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.”

~ I was thinking to myself, the seeds are the best part...
hmm... what does that say about me?

  1. You must, you must carve a pumpkin. Even if only you enjoy it. :) Mom always has a pumpkin carving party for us in October. Maybe you should start one with your grandkids. :) Can't wait to see your finished project.
