pumpkin bumpkin

i love everything about the pumpkin. the way it tastes in food, the way it smells, and the way it immediately gives your home a bit of holiday flair. i have a lot of pumpkin ambitions, but none which have actually happened yet. most of it is just translated into food and mixed with chocolate chips. i don't know about you, but by the time i buy the pumpkin and clean it out, i'm usually too exhausted to do anything else with it. 

lovely martha does a lot of great things with pumpkins that go a little bit further than just your average, run-of-the-mill carved-smiley face pumpkin. someday when i have my own pumpkin patch (yes, i will let you have some), i will get around to making some of her fantastic creations. marthastewart.com is a great way to get some new creative ideas with step-by-step directions. i really, really like martha. 

now, for your viewing pleasure...a little holiday-halloween-pumpkin inspiration. happy sunday. xo.
