carving it up

Alright, I have  a confession -- I am a horrible pumpkin carver. I honestly get stressed when I have to pick up a knife and carve out a spooky face, even if just the classic triangle eyes.  Last year I went to a friends for a pumpkin carving party and was the first one to finish, as I took about 10 slices with my wustof and called it a night. This year I decide to get over my fear and aim high. I decided to carve a pumpkin inspired by this new and amazing wall covering from Phillip Jeffries..
It took about three exhausting but enjoyable hours...
And the result was surprisingly but perfectly spooky.

That's really cool. I did this "Princess and the Frog" carving 2 years ago and I think it took me an entire day (little did I know ahead of time). Super cute though!

I was just at the Holiday House in NYC sponsored by Traditional Home and in one of the rooms there is another new, fab Phillip Jeffries wall paper.

Very impressed with your jack-o-lantern prowess. I think you go to the head of the carving class!!!
