I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers...

 I love October. I love Autumn. I love pumpkins. One thing I don't love is Halloween because I just hate scary things. But most of the blogs that I follow are American and halloween is a b.i.g. d.e.a.l over there! I so wanted to be part of the seasonal fun without all the sinister stuff so I took part in this competition to carve a pumpkin.

Here is my carved pumpkin! I have never ever carved one before because it was too halloween-y but I just LOVE pumpkins as decorations- why shouldn't I use one as a lantern?! And I carved this quote from Anne of Green Gables on it (you couldn't get further away from halloween than Anne of GG could you?!).

And here is a picture of what the words actually look like because the thing with a pumpkin is that you can't see all the way round in one picture can you? Also, I need a new camera. I really struggled to take pictures in the dark, they all came out really grainy. Although it might be me, rather than the camera.

Anyway, happy autumn!

I love Anne, and I seriously dislike Halloween. I'm planning on carving a jack-o-lantern this year too (nothing scary) just because I've never done one before and I love how they look all warm and glowing.
