I realize the pumpkins on display in my house are started to look a little dated:
But how can I throw them out? Look at them. They are so festively orange, so perfectly plump. You might as well tell me I need to throw a kitten into the trash can.
So I Valentine-ified my pumpkins:
I am particularly proud of the pumpkin on the left in the photo above. Please note how the placement of the hearts mimics a Jack- o'-lantern. This eases the pumpkin's transition from Halloween to Valentine's Day. In a past life, I must have been a pumpkin stylist.
This year, Cupid gets to take a break. The Love Pumpkin is the new mascot for February 14th.
