At Least a Day (or more) Late

Yeah, that pretty much describes it.  It's October ~ the month when pumpkins and Halloween festivities are in full bloom.  But I failed to post one of my most favorite original designs in time for people to purchase.

As a child I never owned a paper mache' pumpkin.  Then one year decided to design my own pattern for the hooked version of Mache' Jack-O Lanterns.  The pattern measures 15" x 35" drawn on linen for $38.  
Here it is on my harvest table with a purchased crow and a paper mache' pumpkin I made when living in Columbia, MD and made with a group of friends.  With the cost of the antiques this will be my only paper mache' Jack-O-Lantern.
Today I had my flu shot.  There have already been flu cases reported in our area already.  It normally takes 2 weeks for the vaccine to become effective so hope to be protected when attending rug camp. 



  1. oh I like your rug I don't have any old Halloween either. I just purchased a pattern on line I will not get to this year as I have switched to Christmas for a gift.

  2. I can't believe you made that mache Jack. Such talent :)
