Most Alive Monday: Pumpkin Carving
Satch said that he wanted his Jack-o'-lantern to look like a fairy house "with windows and a door with a knob that turns", so we got busy. We made a door with popsicle sticks.
I cut them, and attached the twig reinforcements with hot glue. Satch sanded the rough edges. Then I stained the wood and added the knob (bead & brad) and wee hinges. After I carved the doorway and windows, Satch installed our fairy door.
We found some lacy leaves for curtains and filled an acorn cap with berries.
He dug up some moss to make a carpet inside the house and next we'll make a fairy chandelier to illuminate the house on Halloween night.
On the fairy clothesline hangs a fairy skirt. At first glance it looks like a Zinnia, but we know better.
Satch was pleased with our creation.
We made sure to leave the door ajar before we left.
*About Most Alive Monday: I've decided to make at least one "most alive choice" each day and post my favorite each Monday. This, of course, is to motivate me to consciously "live juicy"! I hope you'll join me and share your "most alive moment" in the comments section so we may inspire each other.
You may also post photos of your "most alive moments" in my most alive flickr pool! (If you post a photo in pool, be sure to include your link in the comment)
