Did Someone Say PUMPKINS?

YAY! October is here and
that means PUMPKINS!



I see so many ADORABLE pumpkins 
on the internet and want to craft them myself!

After all, how HARD can it be?


Somehow, though, it just NEVER seems to happen . . . .


I'll just have to SETTLE for photos
of OTHER people's FABULOUS
jack-o-lantern creations.

THIS ONE is going straight to my blog SIDEBAR!


And who WOULDN'T love having
Captain America and the Winter Soldier
carved into a pumpkin?


Behold the pumpkin which strikes FEAR
in the heart of EVERY blogger!


These next pumpkins are for all you 
KINKY BASTARDS out there.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.


And we must not forget to SALUTE
all the dedicated pumpkin GROWERS 
who make jack-o-lanterns possible . . . .

THANK YOU for your service and hard work!

Incredible the work some people put into these. The results deserve to be immortalized on the net.

Laurie said...

That last one is the very best, ever. Oh my gosh,, the best,,

Pumpkin pie? Don't forget the pumpkin pie

Frank said...

Well, my hubby reminded me this morning that OCTOBER IS (his) BIRTHDAY MONTH! I will be reminded daily for the rest of the month, I'm sure!

My garden volunteered a pumpkin vine from the guts of last year's pumpkin, and it produced one very nice specimen which I harvested a week ago. I won't try any artistry other than perhaps a nice PIE!

the ladies and the cat pumpkins got me laughing today. unfortunately, I had to explain the meme to arteejee.

Bob said...

My pumpkins always looked like I carved' em with my feet.

:::sigh::::

The Blog Fodder said...

Great memes. Made me laugh. Many of my pumpkin memes are NSFW but I will try to scare up a post for closer to Halloween.

Hello Debra, The bee and hive pumpkins are stunning, and the toothpick teeth idea is really clever. Your post has put me in the mood for my favorite holiday.

Hahahaha
OMG the little doggie next to the pumpkin plant!
And just like you, I look at all the fantastic arrangements but never seem to drag myself to the store and get some pumpkins and make them look pretty. Maybe this year...

Also, the kinky pumpkins!! LOL

XOXO

jaz@octoberfarm said...

pre-fertilized pumpkins seeds!

e said...

These are hilarious! Quite a few true lols in there, D! I'm like you, best of intentions to do something creative and then the pumpkin just sits on the porch. That's ok, it still looks autumnal!

(That corgi though... ha!)

Tasker Dunham said...

How does trick or treat work with social distancing, and do we have to put out hand sanitiser?

Mistress Maddie said...

It's so nice to see at least some people getting into the Hallowe'en spirit!!!!! I LOVE pumpkins!

This N That said...

The last one gave me a chuckle...You have some great "Jacks" there..Love the toothpick teeth..I'l/have to remember that..just in case..I wonder if they burn?? Maybe in a smaller pumpkin?

Deedles said...

I don't care for pumpkins, myself, but I kind of got off on those kinky ones!
Such imagination and creativity.

I used to love carving jack-o-lanterns every year. Haven't done so since moving to Spain. Maybe I'll find a decent sized pumpkin and do it this ear. I especially love the pumpkin that had kittens! Oh, and the bee and honeycomb!

brewella deville said...

I love the smell of a burning candle in a jack-o-lantern.

Tundra Bunny said...

Great post this morning, Deb! So many LOLs... loved Captain America (rowrrrrr), but laughed most at the toothpicks and Corgi! With so many great jack o'lanterns out there now -- it's no wonder why us ordinary folk feel like we fall short and give up.

Marie Smith said...

Love that last photo. She looks so proud.

Mike said...

"What I actually do" is a little more effort than I put in. My daughter and SIL are the "plan to doers". We just visit them and stand next to their work.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

She's adorable, and so self sacrificing.
I never did much with pumpkins, except eat other people's homemade pumpki pie (when they turned away).
Cheers.

Kay G. said...

Ha ha! I am the plain pumpkin gal myself, I just like the way they look without being carved. I'm weird that way!! Our son was so good at carving them when he was a kid and lived with us. Since he moved away, I don't bother with any Halloween stuff! Except might get that plain pumpkin, good enough for me. 😀

Bruce.desertrat said...

Candy corn pumpkins are an abomination. What’s next? Circus peanut pumpkins???

Love the cargo pumpkin farmer though 😄

Lady M said...

Bondage pumpkins? That is a new decorating style.

Guillaume said...

It is this time of year at last! I am full on Halloween mode.

Joanne Noragon said...

All winners, and the bee and honeycomb not the least.

Toni Tona said...

Loving each and ever one!

pam nash said...

I like those candy corn pumpkins! Some of the others gave me good ideas for my scary pumpkin at the end of the month. Possibly - the WiFi one!

^.^ said...

Love them all and love your blog, friend Debra. Always, cat.

Bob Johns said...

Oh, that last one is great!!

Polly said...

oh the dog, how cute is that. I love the bees and kittens. What you plan and what you do is hilarious.

Fundy Blue said...

I was looking at pumpkins in the grocery store yesterday. I think Terry and I need to celebrate big this year. Thank you for the much-needed laughs on this crazy day. Take care, Debra!

DVArtist said...

Great pumpkin photos. I too will have to stick with photos.

CraveCute said...

Those are wonderful! REally love the bee and honeycomb pair, cute!

Linda said...

The last one is the best, look how proud she looks, hahaha!

Brian Joseph said...

People do such amazing things with Pumpkins. Personally anything that I have ever tried came out messy. I love the honeycomb.

Ur-spo said...

I am stealing most of these photos, thank you.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Oh goodness Debra, such a great display of unique pumpkins. There are so many talented people out there. I have been watching Halloween wars and Outrageous pumpkins.

Bruce.desertrat said...

I know this is a week old post and all, but I just found this one At Digby's joint and it is perfect!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Bruce.desertrat -- Oh, that pumpkin definitely wins Jack-o-Lantern of the Year! Thanks for the link!

JACKIESUE said...

mxtodis123 said...

Oh gosh, I get all squeemish when I see bats. The neighborhood I lived in when I was a teenager was very wooded and at night you'd have to walk with your hands covering your hair because of the bats.

When I was a kid we used turnips.

Magic Love Crow said...

I love the bee and the hive one!!!! A+++
