punkins (and squarshes) galore

Here are some clever and craftily-carved punkins and squashes for your Halloween enjoyment.

(I dare you not to chuckle)

(it reminds me of that critter from The Neverending Story)

(the little guy look genuinely scared!)

(I imagine I'd look a lot like this if I were thrown behind bars...here's hoping I never find out)

(there's a full moon out tonight)

(looks a lot more appetizing than this guy)

(survival of the fittest and all that)

(yoink!)

(just because I love kitties)

Happy early Halloweenie, folks.

Those are all so cool! But the first one is my fave, too funny! :)

Bunny said...

I would love to have a creative mind so I could look at a pumpkin and imagine what cute carving I could make with it. I look at a pumpkin and all I see is pumpkin pie!

emily said...

I love things like this! I have to say the first one and the "full moon" made me laugh the hardest. So fun. Thaks for sharing!

Lori said...

Amazing minds is right. They are too cool. I have seen a couple of these but several are new to me. My Uncle sends that mooning one to me every year. Silly guy. Love the ones with the gourds.

Lucy said...

Wonderful carvings and amazing talent, wish I could be that talented... on the other hand, Halloween costumes and making my kids look gruesome seems to be my venue ;-)

Candy said...

Those are so cool. I'm going to show them to my boys and see if they can top that. Of course, I'll have to let them use my sharp knife...on second thought maybe I won't show them.

Maria said...

I love all of the pumpkin pictures! So festive and fun!

Marjie said...

You made me laugh! I just don't have enough imagination to do these. I'm not going to let my boys imitate the first one.

Louise said...

Thanks so much for giving me a good laugh on my way to work this morning! I especially love the double squash ideas ... some people are so creative!

Albany Jane said...

Ha ha! Those are great. But what are the green things? Squashes?

Mike of Mike's Table said...

lol, those are all awesome. My favorite ones speak to my maturity...I doubt I need to point out which they are ;)

Peabody said...

The vomit one cracks me up.

The Blonde Duck said...

It DOES look like the critter from NeverEnding story. Holy crap! I loved that movie. And I love the hamburger and puking one.

Be sure you come by my blog tommorow. The focus is...cinnamon...

Prudy said...

I love the big fish little fish ones! I'd better get out those knives and start sharpening. Remember the days when people just made a face on their pumpkins???

Lisa said...

Wow, those are amazing! So clever.

Robin Sue said...

You make me laugh! Some people are very clever, are you going to try any of these? The first one did make me chuckle as I do have a sick sense of humor!!

I so love the puking pumpkin, I really want to make that one fro my front steps but we get so much rain it would make an icky mess.

foodhoe said...

those are awesome and inspiring. I usually carve the pumpkin just for the seeds, but those are great ideas.

The Blonde Duck said...

I thought you'd like the cinnamon rolls! Since Ben already ate all the ones in the freezer, I'm making them again for Christmas. Want me to mail you some?

Krysta said...

awesome

Lo said...

These are really fantastic ideas. I like to think of a jack-o-lantern as another way to light candles and make the house cozy... but these take the concept to another level!

Dawn said...

totally awesome!
Thanks for sharing this!!

Sophie said...

These are too cute! I especially like the one with the snake...is that a snake squash eating a pumpkin? :)
