Last night, I came across a great deal on carving pumpkins at our local Fresh Market. I was able to get a large pumpkin for only $3.40, with tax! So, if you have one in your area, you might want to check them out soon for a great deal.
Of course, as we pulled into the parking lot and I saw that glimmer of orange, I gasped in delight. My boyfriend then sighed, because as he claims, I have an utter obsession with pumpkins.
I don't deny it. I love them. I have no idea why...but they make me happy and I giggle like a child when I see them displayed.
The pumpkin now has a prominent place on the coffee table, away from the pets so it does not get chewed on for now. I have to protect it...it wants me to protect it.
Now that I have started to get into the spirit, I pulled out all of the Halloween and fall decorations today and began to arrange them around the apartment. After finally sitting down for the evening, I decided I should actually work on my jewelry. What better than to use my new coffee table centerpiece for my inspiration?
I carved this pumpkin pendant out of polymer clay. I love the detail that showed up in the vine. After I baked it, I painted it very carefully with several coats. I am very pleased with the finished product. It has a vintage look to me...
