Merry Pumpkins

We got our tree this weekend, much to the delight of my son. I usually have a pretty strict no-Christmas-decorating-until-after-my-birthday policy -- I'm not a fan of losing my big day in everyone else's holiday festivities -- but he's been nagging me for a month and I couldn't take it anymore.

My neighbor was similarly appalled horrified concerned about my delayed decorating plan -- and the fact that my (uncarved) pumpkins were still sitting on the front porch from Halloween. So she took matters into her own hands last week.

One day, when I returned home with my kids after an outing to the park, we found this:

Hilarious! She's brilliant -- and she's got a lot of felt. Have I mentioned how much I love living here? And do you think the pumpkins will last long enough for her to come over with bunny ears in a few months?


  1. Your neighbor's craftiness wins the "Best Recycled Use of Halloween Decor" prize. And it is eco-friendly! Such a heart"felt" gesture! Gotta love it.

  2. Heart"felt". Love it!

    One can only hope they last until Easter . . .


But enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think about me?
