I'm loving the photo of DS checking out the lit pumpkin and I'm also loving how my first carved pumpkin turned out! Oh, and how many Trick or Treaters did we get? Not a single one, which DH approves of because he can now eat the chocolate!
It's that time of the week again: Pink Saturday. Thanks go again to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting and organising what must be becoming an enormous task! This week I'm showcasing these beautiful roses, picked up this week from the supermarket along with my shopping. They really are stunning! I have another … Continue reading Pink Saturday
So here they are ... my first ever carved pumpkin and DS's pretty fabby Halloween card. I know that my pumpkin won't be a patch on the one(s) produced by my BIL and nephew, but they've had more years to practice!
