Halfrek, My Pumpkin

This is my Pumpkin Halfrek. If you can guess where that name comes from you win the smartest and coolest person alive award. 

I picked her up from a pumpkin patch Josh and I happened upon yesterday in Nicasio Valley. Going to the pumpkin patch is one of my fondest childhood holiday memories, so running into a great one yesterday set in a grassy valley at the foot of rolling hills made my month.

I loved the light peachy color of this pumpkin. It was the only one of thousands.  It motivated me to paint it instead of carving it.

This is my best attempt at replicating the design on the previous post. I didn't have puffy paint so I just used paint and glitter. Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.
