sunday {part three} pumpkin


so here is our pumpkin, that is {was} the same weight as my head.
As we don't really get into the whole Halloween stuff, I thought I'd do a Fair Isle inspired pumpkin lantern to celebrate the turning of the season.
our flat is now covered in pumpkin brains, but there's nothing quite as captivating as a glowing pumpkin to warm the cockles of your heart!


don't worry, that is the last of my sunday posts! I'm so busy these days during the week, that I don't get much time to update the ol'blog, so it all conglomerates on sundays!

  11. Love that pumpkin! By the way, I can recommend rubbing a bit of ground cinnamon over the inside of the lid when you have it lit. Makes the whole house smell AMAZING.
