Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Pumpkin Carving Tutorial

This is a little different subject than I usually post about, but since Halloween is just a few days ago and I saw this posting and loved the look of the pumpkins that I thought I would share it with you. Wish we would have thought of this when my kids were home although my hubby was pretty good with carving really neat pumpkins with a knife. Hope you enjoy this tutorial from The Garden Glove.

Have a Happy Halloween!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Halloween

Halloween has been around for many years and since it has that means there are a lot of vintage items associated with Halloween. I thought we would visit a few today from the pages of Etsy. :)

Pumpkins are a big part of the Halloween scene and this one from Bseron shows kind of an eerie one. 

And then there are the witches. Halloween is all about witches. They can be scary or they can be friendly. This one from backstashandbygones shows a friendly cute candle. 

Halloween wouldn't be Halloween without the ghosts. Now if you want to really get into Halloween you could make some cookies with this ghost cookie cutter fromLazyDaisyEssentials. I myself make pumpkins one's. :)

Then there is the traditional Trick or Treating candy holder....yep.....the ever faithful pumpkin bucket. I remember these and my kids had them. How about yours? You can find this one at Yesteryearshop.

Halloween is always a fun time of year with all the parties and dressing up. Wish my kids were still around so we could do costumes again. Or maybe I should come out of retirement and go back to work because we use to always dress at work for't think I will go that route again. HA!HA! 

Have fun!
