His Lordship comes through

Every year I rant like a broken record about where the pumpkins go.  Oct. 31st, Safeway has 15 huge cardboard boxes of pumpkins.  By November 1, they have vanished.  Were do they go?  To feed pigs? Stimulate zoo animals?   Your guess is as good as mine.  In the past - I have even dug them out of the trash.

 
This year, however, I got the brilliant idea to appeal to our online neighborhood chat group.  His Lordship put up a nice request for uncarved pumpkins and the response was outstanding.  We picked up all these beauties this week.  They will be fun for Thanksgiving and provide endless hours of Creepmas fun.  Even that painted one will clean up nicely.
 
 He also came through at the liquor store by buying me a bottle of Proseco - my favorite. Thanks to his Lordship for being so awesome.  To bad he never reads my blog and, thus, will be unable to bask in all this adoration.

  1. Hey, what a great idea! I'm sure your neighbors were happy to contribute their pumpkins if they didn't have a need for them after Halloween and the pumpkins can get a fun second life with you for Creepmas! :) So, will they end up in Santa hats? I had one sitting around in a Santa hat one year.

    P.S. ~ I bet I know where you got that skeleton hand candle holder! I'd been admiring it at Kohl's earlier this season. Our Kohl's Halloween stuff went fast this year, so I don't think it stuck around long!

    1. Yes - thrilled to be reusing something that otherwise would have ended up in the trash.

  4. Our pumpkins rarely survive long after Halloween because of the cold and wet weather, but I can imagine the pumpkin waste in other places. I would totally dig pumpkins out of the trash to make yummy food and baked goods.
