The Valentine Pumpkin

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.
