Fairy Pumpkin Cottage
Jack-O-Cottage
Most Halloweens we have to be on the look-out for squirrels messing with (eating) the pumpkins on the porch.
2006 turned out a bit differently.

10-30-2007. It's nearly Halloween & They're back on the porch!
I brought home a pretty big and VERY heavy pumpkin for carving. Before I could whittle a face in it, there was a fairy cottage with a working chimney-stem and shuttered window-ears! Somewhat more elaborate than last year.

They came back! Very similar to last year, but a new "host" pumpkin.
