Freckles and Snake Bites

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
- Albert Camus

Did you know that
Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and curing snake bites? And that pumpkins are 90% water AND that they are a fruit? Bet you did not know that:)

I have continued crafting and have found a few new crafts as well as some fun, interesting twists on Pumpkin Carving/Decorating:

Pumpkin Sconces

Carving starburst patterns into small pumpkins and fitting them with tops radiate soft lighting that cast flickering shadows up the wall.

Pumpkin Lanters

Cut zig-zags, diamonds, circles, etc. into your pumpkins to brighten up the pathways for trick or treaters!


Shrunken-Apple Heads
