I'll give a copy of my ghostly novella Mia's Books - it's a sexy threesome to heat you up for Halloween.

I found these beauties on
So when I was little I was quite terrified of Halloween but strangely drawn to all the horrifying costumes and evil merry making. One of my most favourite things is pumpkin carving - though when I was a girl living in Scotland pumpkins were exotic indeed - turnips were what we carved. Now I don't know if you've ever tried to hollow out an actual turnip but I'm guessing if you did, you'll have the scars to prove it! It is like trying to carve a hockey ball :D I might try a bit of a turnip revival this year - who'd have thought there'd ever be a time when the turnip lanterns are the unusual ones. 

What a joy when pumpkins started making their way over here! I carve about five or six every year - usually starting too early in October so they start turning to mush and I have to replace them - here's a couple I made last year:

I love naked ladies!

To go with my Clockwork Butterfly

  15. I love how creative some people are at carving pumpkins. I usually suck at them myself. This year though, I'm proud of myself I made a skull & cross bones design and it totally rocks nothing compared to yours though they are amazing. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a Happy Halloween!

  16. i cant myself but its amazing what people can make when carving pumpkins

  17. Love your pumpkins! I wish I could carve a decent jack-o-lantern, but apparently I lack that talent.


  18. Lovely pumpkin carving! I'm like Liz, I don't have great skill with it. I imagine after turnip carving pumpkins are a breeze. I like eating turnips but wow those suckers are hard!

  19. Impressive, Tabitha! I've never tried carving a turnip but they are good eats ;) DD did carve a cute kitty pumpkin earlier this month, but it lasted only a couple days before we had to discard it, alas!

    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous carvings!
