I Am Easily Entertained



I found this at a local market for 2 euros. I was really excited because all the pumpkins I had seen were 8-10 euros and as money is kind of tight right now, I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much for something I would throw out in a few days.

I know this isn't artistic or even original, but I love it. I had such a blast carving my pumpkin; it kept me entertained for about 2 hours. Then I cooked the pumpkins seeds. I love Halloween! I wish I had a party or something planned for the big day, but I don't, so this jack-o-lantern will have to do. Although it is a feast for my bionic gnats, I hope it lasts until Halloween.

I think the pumpkin looks really good, Angela! So glad you could find one at a bargain. Wishing you a spooktacular Halloween - do the French celebrate it all?

I love your blog and I love your pumpkin! Much more clever than anything I could have carved! I hope that you have a great Halloween!

A 2 euro pumpkin? Can't beat that! You did a really nice job carving it too!

I have never actually carved a pumpkin before (I know, what kind of an American am I?!). I always used to make the face with a black marker.

Looks good to me, wine and all... If it makes you feel better, I'm off to photo class tonight...

But I have enjoyed seeing some halloween stuff around the neighborhood...

I'm not that into it though I guess.
