    Love Carnivals 

    If you love carnival rides like me. I would go every week for a while if I could.  The amusement parks here are pretty far away.

      There’s a historic carousel here, but honestly not a whole lot else (except when the yearly Canadian Lakehead Exhibition shows up, but those rides aren’t the greatest either).

        Spokane Washington has an old carousel leftover from the world fair way back in history like that. I miss the Washington State Fairs where I am from.

        Oh my yes cotton candy. I have slowed down on that with age compared to the whole time eating it as a kid at the fair. Still so good and special.

      Much has changed with amusement parks.

        Everything changes some for the good others mess with us.

          Agree. We still have lots of battles with dangerous rides and ever-changing vending methods. Nice post.

    Pumpkin Deco Luv 

    I love pumpkins. Every year I wait for my favorite season of Autumn and the apple cider, colored leaves, crisp air, cozy cocoa days, baking, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Best of all PUMPKINS!

    The greatest thing about pumpkins other than the cozy feeling they give me just looking at them is they are a wonderful and inexpensive pallet to paint or use as an artistic tableau.

    So this is the result of my pumpkin endeavors this year:

    (Oh and I thought I would use this for:Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge.)

    Pinterest does Pumpkins 

    As I mentioned over @http://ceenphotography.com/ earlier, pumpkins are my favorite thing that happen during the year.

    Today I have been pinning pumpkins off and on onto Pinterest. It is amazing how the designing and doings with pumpkins have changed over the years. Here are some creative, cool and different ones I found today on there. (Non of these first photos are mine.)

    PINK! is the new Orange!!!

    As you can see i am pumpkin happy. Now here are a couple of my own making and photos: 

    Little pumpkins my kids did a couple years back. They are so creative. Used whatever they wanted to make them their own. I was so sad when they rotted, though they lasted almost the whole year.

    Glue and glitter on top of it. I also wish I had sprayed a sealer since I have lost a lot of glitter. Hey I am learning as I go here-,Aren't you or were you born perfect? with kids , who needs a tornado? I may update this with more glitter and glue and sealer.

    Beautiful apple gourds. When I took the photo it had lost a lot of it’s glitter. It was supposed to harden and dry so I could keep it. maybe Missouri is too wet because it molded after about a year also.

    Yarn Pumpkins

    I love my yarn pumpkins. I made a white one to go with these this year.

    My first go at a “pop up” card. Of course I could not resist trying this when I saw it was for a pumpkin.

    Check out my pinterest to see what I pinned: http://www.pinterest.com/luvtapin/

    ^Lots of help for the Fall gatherings for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fun and Food.

    I am working on having a little Halloween get together. I also am making a paper mache pumpkin. I really want to try my hand at another pop out pumpkin card since the one I did ,  I had to use paper that was not what worked as well as the direction had you use. I got better paper now. I also did some other things  I want to share here, so hopefully I can post more fun stuff soon. (Look for these coming posts.)

    P.S. I also see some other blogs with some cute pumpkin ideas I want to skip over and visit. Thanks for reading and looking .

      Creative ideas about pumpkins. I have never thought that they could be much beautiful like these photos 🙂

        Thanks. I saw some more ideas yesterday like making rooms in a pumpkin with small doll house furniture. There are also ways to preserve them, ( I have not tried that myself.) to keep them from molding. I could have used that with mine that molded, but never knew this prior.
