Our first pumpkins we've ever carved! Yup, that's right... the whole time we dated (for three years) we never carved a pumpkin! Technically I carved the face, he just cut out the top. It took a huge knife to cut the top out and I don't think he trusted me to do it. :)
Our pumpkin in the dark. Doesn't it look great?
Our door complete with a new doormat and plenty of pumpkins. (You can see that we need to paint around our door... oh the many projects with a new home!)

So....PURGE is the word of the weekend.
I have asked myself...waaaay too many times..."Do I need this? Do I use this? Have I EVER used this? Chances are the answer is NO. For some reason when my grandmother moved out of her house this year I brought it upon myself to keep all (and I do mean ALL) of her kitchen utensils, as if by keeping her kitchen utensils would somehow keep her house alive in my memory. Perhaps it would help but the greatest gift, my grandmother gave me was her hutch. I love it! I decided that the hutch was beautiful enough a piece to capture every memory of her house I ever needed...therefore, I purge. I never knew how many strainers I had...nor how many my grandmother had for that matter. I mean, who needs a white strainer and a red one and an orange one? I kept the orange one, by the way...and YES, I use it! :)
So....I continue to PURGE. Please pray for my sanity and I search for serenity in this condo. I know it's in here somewhere...
