Happy Halloween, Samhain or what you will :)
Today I am showing the inside of my pumpkin. I’m sorry if you are hoping for something more witchy or ghostly.
You can see a rough step-by-step in pictures of how I made the pumpkin itself in my post Down the Rabbit Hole. I was shocked, when I looked back, to see I must have only started this in mid-late August because I thought it had been at least a year. I also thought anyone following my blog would have heard quite enough of it by now but I see I have only mentioned it three times so perhaps you won’t mind.
Despite my best endeavours, the floors are very uneven but I have furnished it mostly with job lots of already broken furniture from ebay so I didn’t feel too bad about breaking some of the legs and sticking bits of wood to the bottom to try to get things to stand as level as I could. I did feel bad, though, about bending some of the legs of the wire rack in the kitchen because that was new. If I use it somewhere else, I hope I can bend them back without breaking them.
I had many doubts about the arrangement of furniture (which was very much limited by the shape of the pumpkin) the rough finish and, especially, the pink furniture. That mainly came about because the dresser had some drawers missing so I removed the others and glued a piece of card over the bottom middle section.
Now it’s finished, though, I’m very happy with the way it’s all come together. I feel this is not the sort of character you could ever find in a shop bought model!
I hope you have a wonderful day with lots of treats and no tricks :)
