coastal jack-o-lanterns

coastal pumpkins

pumpkin carving 2012

Well, Halloween is not that far away so I thought I would share some of this year’s pumpkin creations.  I say ‘some’ because I have not yet finished carving…I have my largest pumpkin and a couple small ones left to carve before Wednesday.  As you can see, I have a coastal theme going.  I never was one for ghosts or goblins…

I can’t even watch a scary movie!

With the kids grown, I am no longer carving pumpkins to cater to their tastes.  (Although I have to admit, last year I carved a pumpkin with  “T-Shirt Time” for my daughter to display in her college apartment.)

Carving pumpkins is almost therapeutic…don’t you think?

I will be collecting some seeds too…the good friend that gave me my favorite white pumpkin is planning on using the seeds to grow some white pumpkins of her own for next year.   And, my daughter requested some roasted pumpkin seeds for her visit home on Thanksgiving.

So, these are my jack-o-lanterns so far…(haven’t even taken the drill out yet!)

Enjoy your Halloween!  Have a safe one!

Thanks for visiting, Jackie
