Tag Tuesday - Pumpkins

Today at Kard Krazy the assignment is pumpkins, a very appropriate challenge for this time of year in this part of the world.

The image is from a postcard from the early 1900's. I accented the "pumpkin men" with a Diamond Glaze and glitter mix, added a fabric carved pumpkin, mulberry leaves outlined in glitter and a ribbon.

So far it has been a beautiful October. The weather changed dramatically at the end of September as if to apologize for dragging summer so far past its boundaries.  We have had temperatures in the 40s and 50s (F) at night and the days have been clear and blue with temps in the 60s and 70s, except for one day when it was cloudy and overcast. I felt so much better Saturday that I was able to accompany John to pick up some straw bales and even to have lunch out. He's spreading the straw in bare areas to cut down on the mud in the autumn rains. Sunday and Monday, however my strength ebbed sharply. Today I am thankful to say that I feel pretty good!

  6. The pumpkin men look like perhaps they just emerged from the garden with cucumber legs and arms? Some of the graphics on those vintage postcards are amazing.
    A great image to incorporate in this week's challenge!

  12. Wonderful tag. The walking pumpkins is one I have never seen. We are having a crazy fall. My irises actually bloomed this week! and I live in Indiana. It is supposed to be in the 80"s again today.
