Happy Halloween!

Done freehand, which is what I usually do, with a small knife, an old-school metal vegetable peeler, and one of those dinky pumpkin-carving saws (which was somewhat the worse for wear when I finished with it). The fearsome glow is from a chunky pillar candle (the second year in a row it's been used for this) with an aluminum foil reflector over the entire back wall of the pumpkin.

Swanky!

My jack-o-lanterns are small ceramic deals my mother found in their basement. So I'm using tealights. lol

Jack-o-lanterns are one of the ways that I use up fancy candles when people insist on giving them to me (a lot of scented stuff gives me a headache). If I don't have any, I fall back on Shabbat candles, an act that has a nice sort of eclecticism to it.

Aww, thanks - I enjoy doing them!

We haven't had as many trick-or-treaters this evening as we usually do. There was quite a lot of childish noise outside last night, so maybe some kids went out then - although that seems pretty silly, because most of us weren't handing stuff out.

Very nice, and very elaborate! I bought Ally a pumpkin, but she didn't do anything with it. I don't think she did last year, either. So next year I am going on strike when it comes to pumpkin buying.
