All Things Pumpkin...

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

I love all things pumpkin!  So here is a pumpkin post!

Every year I buy some some pumpkin spice hand soap and lotion from Avon from a friend of mine that sells it.

This year I also bought a pumpkin muffin pan also from Avon and made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins in it.

I recently received a box from Virginia Soaps and Scents to review for the TOS Crew and love their products! I am planning on buying some of their Pumpkin Spice soap this week...

How about sharing a great story with your kids...

Do you know that some people use pumpkins as a "canvas" for their art?  See this.  And this which comes from this artist.

I want to try these wire pumpkins!  Here is a tutorial from Sheri at The Shades of Pink.

Or how about some pumpkin poop?! Who thinks up these things?!

You could make a salt dough pumpkin patch.

Here are some pumpkin carving ideas...way beyond the Jack-o-Latern!

Felted Pumpkins...I would never be able to do these, but aren't they so cute?

Did you know... That the word "pumpkin" comes from a Greek word "Pepon" which means "large melon"?  That pumpkins originated in Central America? That in colonial times pumpkins were used for the crust of pies instead of the filling?  That pumpkins are 90% water? That they are considered a fruit?

Here are some pumpkin recipes that I had previously posted.
