"My Weekend Project".....
.....at least one of them, anyways!!! A "mysterious diva" gave me the intuition to get this project off and running:)
I do have to say, since not growing any pumpkins this year, "white" ones are pretty scarce around these parts!!! I finally
found some at Lowes Saturday---and for a reasonable price too---$2.50. They were a little dingy looking, so I washed them
off with 1/2 parts water and bleach (this is also a helpful hint I got a few years ago from Buddy Patterson-who just happens to
be the "King of Pumpkins"---it keeps them from rotting!)
RAVENS are the "RAGE" this year, especially with it being the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allen Poe's death. Salem has been learning about "Gothic Literature" in Ms.Carol Neal's class, and he LOVES it! So, I thought my rendition of "The Raven" turned out quite cute---if I do say so myself:)
