Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


How someone comes up with this and does it is beyond me, but I’m glad to know her

One thing I love about Halloween is carving pumpkins and sometimes mine are good and other years they are just OK. But, no matter how they turn out, I always seem to enjoy carving them and put them out for display.

Now, I have seen some great pumpkins in my time, but my cousin every year in a matter of a few hours can take an average pumpkin or in this year’s case, 3 pumpkins and turn it into something amazing. Here is my cousin Theresa’s pumpkin and tell me if you are… Is this just amazing? There were no drawings, plans, nothing buy and her imagination.

You just have to love the artistic creativity in some folks. This is a pumpkin carving definitely worthy of recognition.

Posted by Craig Rutman, Raleigh, Cary, Apex area Realtor (Helping people in transition) almost 9 years ago

WOW! There's creative artistry in your family! Now I know why you're photos are so much better than mine!

Your'e cousins talent goes beyond any talented pumpkin carver I've ever seen! I wonder if there's a way to preserve them!

Holy smokes, Todd. You really went all out on that one. I am impressed by your creativity. My kids always used to pick the carving and about a third of the way through the activity, they would bail and I would be stuck finishing.

Melissa, I wish that was me, that was my cousin and she does this ever year. We told her next year she is limited to an hour to give us a fighting chance.

Now that is talent! I didn't see your carving, but I imagine you would be hard pressed to beat her ability even IF you limited her time. Thanks for sharing her work of art.

I'm always amazed at the creative ideas and artistry that some demonstrate with their use of pumpkins.  Very cleaver.

Todd...she is one great artist.  would have loved to have had her come to show my Art students how to create with Nature.  She is fantastic.  Great to see and thanks for the post.

Have a great weekend.

Todd - Just a fun way to mangle a perfectly good gourd. ( there was a time that i wondered about "The Great Punpkin")

Posted by Claude Cross, Charlotte NC Homes For Sale (Homes By Cross, Inc. ) almost 9 years ago

Todd's Talented cousin Theresa has created a work of art.  She should be an artist if she isn't already!  Happy Halloween, Todd.
