The Death of a Pumpkin

Well, I knew it was only a matter of time before I killed somebody....or something. Yesterday was the day! I had made this really prurddeee pumpkin and had already baked it once and I should have left it alone......but noooooo, I put a little more grunge on it and stuck it back in the oven, well I did not notice my oven was on broil.....yes dead by fire, and I mean Fire! I had to put it out! I was soooooo mad at myself. Anyone interested in a char boiled pumpkin?

Anyway, glad I did not burn these gruby long stemed punkin's!
I like them lined up on the mantle at my shop or in a bowl...

Look I got my swap from Gina at Catnap Inn

Ain't they pretty? I hung them right up at my Kitchen window. Thanks Gina!

I hope everyone has a safe weekend.


  1. Hey there Beth,
    they look awesome in your kitchen..I love just what I can see...would love to see more of your home..I love the antiques and the old prim stuff..and those towels really add a nice cheery addition to your kitchen...glad you like em...have a wonderful weekend too!

  2. Wonderful blog!

  3. Awwwwww poor pumpkin! But the rest look great!

  4. You cracked me up! That's too funny.
    Say put it out on your porch on Halloween.

  5. Love the picture of the pumpkins lined up on the mantel in your shop with the crows and plaid pumpkin. Love the game board on the shutters also! I just made myself a game board a few months ago and am getting ready to do a small one to go with it. I have an old shutter in front of my fireplace screen and your photo has given me a wonderful idea of what to do with my gameboards. Thanks for sharing this photo, it has inspired me. I've added you to my favorite lists on my blogroll.
    Have a great Labor Day weekend.

  6. LOL too funny Beth!!!

    Cute pumpkins though!


  7. you know i love all the punkins!! i know you think the big one looks bad.but.................... i bet if you come up with this story about it getting zapped by a witch's spell or something like it...... and put the story on a tag it would sell!! :)

  8. I did that once with a bunny I was working on. Nothing like charbroiled bunny. LOL Love the other pumpkins they look great on the mantle.

  9. I thought something smelled well done!
    Blessings, Kimberly

  10. It's just a super duper extreme primitive pumpkin! ;-) LOL! Sorry it burnt though. That would have been really frustrating!


  11. Hi Beth; I think you have such a nice blog! I left you an award on my blog; See you soon! Merrie

  12. Beth, sorry about your pumpkin. I get nervous everytime I put something in the oven. My problem is I get busy doing something for the kids and I forget about'em.

    Everything looks great. Love the pumpkins. Great job.

  13. LOL! to funny- Like the idea of getting zapped by a witch spell ..
    Hocus Pocus.. OOPS?

    Still come by and daydream about your shop.. everyday!
    {I promise- I'm not stalking}

  14. Poor pumpkin! The long stemmed pumpkins all in a row look great though!

  15. Hi Beth,
    Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment. I was reading a post from Aug 28th and I also think we handle groceries too much..No wonder grocery shopping is a chore, not something fun. I'm not sure what happened to your pumpkin other than it burned. How fun to receive a package and the towels are fun. :) Take care.
    Deb :)

  16. what did you win? that is too cool!! congrats to you as well...have a good one..I love your pumpkins by the way....and I got the stencil that is on the pumpkin you sent me..they are too cool...and such a neat way to add a little something to the pumpkin..have a great week..:)

  17. Hey Beth,
    Its me again...where did you get the pattern for the pumpkin you sent me ..the plaid one..I love it and want to make some...have a good one..

  18. Cute! Sorry you burned your pumkpin! But the others turned out nicely. :)

  19. That poor pumpkin! Sorry about that but you really made me laugh! The thought of the flaming pumpkin coming out of the oven . . . Anyway, love the long stemmed ones that survived on the shelf!

  20. I love your pumpkins and crow board. How did you grunge them? I want to grunge some fake sunflowers, but I don't know how. Thanks a bunch. Julie

  21. Hi Beth...
    I love your punkins all lined up in a row! The first one, well, may he rest in peace (wow)

    Looking forward to visiting you!


Thank you so Much! Come back and see me again!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
