My Very Own Pumpkin

As I've said before, I'm not a fan of carving pumpkins (too gooey). But this pumpkin requires no carving, and it doesn't rot!

I bought this ceramic pumpkin last year from Julia at Do*It*Yourself Crafts. She hand-carved my name, and when it was dry, I picked my paint colors and went to town painting it. I chose traditional pumpkin orange, but if you visit her studio, you'll see an array of pumpkin paintings and get some great ideas. A hole is carved in the back for a light bulb and cord, so you won't need to worry about candle wax. Of course one with your name, or your spouse's, or even your kid's would be perfect this year and the next... and the next...
