Love your 'handiwork' Charlotte!! LOL. also, L O V E Zoe! That Jenny is a talented lady... I remember Zoe from last year. Have never ever lost my love of paper dolls - even if there's no cutting involved! - love the Mary Engelbreit paper doll insert in every mag issue too!! LindaSonia


Love those cute pumpkins :)


As I hold my two-month-old granddaughter on my shoulder, I whisper in her ear 'you will love to make stuff - you will Love to make stuff - you will LOVE to make stuff!'

I hope it works.

I haven't lived at this address long enough to know what my neighbors would think if I took a picture of their pumpkins, but I just might have to find out! Those are TOO cute!

My goodness, I think these pumpkins might be cuter than the ones we carved! What fun and what imagination too.

Very cute idea, bet your neighbors would be flattered!

Oh my gosh, that is brilliant. That would be all I have time for this year, too! Wait, I may not even have that much time! Anywho, love em!

Diane Duda

Very cute!
We don't have our pumpkin(s) yet either. My husband in working on a little picket fence out front. It's not quite finished and there are tools all over the porch and such. It seems kinda silly to decorate around that mess.
I do enjoy everyone else's though!

Absolutely hysterical...I love the idea of decorating the pumpkins at whim. We did get our pumpkins, but I think that I will be going minimalist with them this year. Unless the kids decide to do the carving (teenagers). Susan

Oh how cute these little guys look! I haven't done our pumpkins yet son keeps asking so I guess I know what we are doing this weekend!



Charlotte, you must have been the most fun mommy ever. You have such an eye for whimsy and find it all around - from dinosaurs and bears in the trees to virtually decorating your neighbors pumpkins. Love those, so cute!
