Take one pumpkin ....

Ahh, the lowly pumpkin ...

What other vegetable, and in what other season, do you get to play with your food as you do with your pumpkin at Halloween?

I can't take credit for any of these carvings below, other than that I have been collecting their photos for years now.  I am amazed at the ingenuity of so many people who can see faces in stems, and take the time to expertly carve creative greetings for their haunting visitors. 

I used "PicMonkey" to group these photos in some reasonable way, and to make these collages. The service is free (, at least for now. Love it!  

I hope these great carvings inspire your visit to the pumpkin patch this week!

Thanks for the pumpkin ideas...amazing! I pinned them onto my boards and sent them to my kids! Love the castle!! We need a design with a BOTOX pumpkin (no wrinkles!)
I'm going to be pinning your button onto my newly designed blog tonight once Nana from My Crafting Channel gives me button placing 101 (she resized ALL of my stuff).
I hope to follow your blog more closely and hope you do the same.
Creative Wishes,
