My Pretty Pumpkins!


Are you growing pumpkins in your backyard?



Does it look like my punkies are growing words on them??


My cousin told me that if you scrape words or designs on a pumpkin while it is still growing, the scraped parts will "heal" over and looked etched in!
Isn't that COOL?



I LOVE IT!


Here's our last name etched in a pumpkin that hasn't turned orange yet.


My daughter plucked this beauty from the garden 2 weeks ago 'cause she was so excited to have a pumpkin. Hopefully he'll last 'til Halloween!


It may be only August...
but never too early to get excited about PUMPKINS!

Wow! Your pumpkins look great! I guess we waited too long this year. We usually plant mini pumpkins each year, but the last few haven't done well. Now we have these critters eating everything in sight so maybe it's a good thing we didn't plant any.

The center of the flower on the cake was a fabric covered button. I went on line and typed in fabric flower tutorial, and this was one of the ones that came up. Jackie
