Pumpkins, Anyone?

Pumpkins, Anyone?

They leave me in charge of getting a pumpkin, and I don’t even like Halloween! I thought someone would come with me to help, but, nooooo….they’re all too busy. I liked the little pumpkins, all round and cute and most importantly, not heavy. But, they wanted a big one…..I think the term was, ‘a behemoth of a pumpkin’! I guess they think I’m Superman or something, otherwise how is said ‘behemoth’ going to get loaded into the truck? It ain’t walking there itself! It’s not that this one is immensely heavy, heck I’ve grown pumpkins bigger than this one, but what makes carrying them hard is their lack of handles! Please…someone…anyone…..develop a pumpkin with a handle, I may not approve of GMO, but I’ll let that go, if only for a handle! 😀

There’s a couple things in that story that are completely factual. I don’t really like Halloween, I just don’t get it. I don’t approve of GMO, in any instance, and yes…I have grown a few jumbo pumpkins. They were big enough that I had to get a tarp under each one and have 3 people carry them one at a time. Nowhere near record breaking but I was happy with them. This one isn’t light, I know that for a fact, but I love this whole scene! Le Poppycock has made the incredible pose/prop set ‘Oh My Gourd’ exclusively for the Men Only Hunt 10, which runs until October 28. You’re looking for a moustache somewhere in the lobby area of the main store, and for no cost you will receive this gifty! The gift includes the pumpkin, of course, a pose, plus a nice cluster of pumpkins. The pumpkins are all wearable, so you don’t need to rezz anything to create the perfect pumpkin scene!

I’ve surrounded myself with lots of pumpkins here. The ones in the pile behind me are from the ‘Fall Punkin v2’ set from [QE] Designs and available at Mad Circus 3 and Trick or Treat Lane. They’re a new release and there’s four shapes in the set with each pumpkin having 8 colours to choose from via drop down menu, plus they’re scripted for easy resizing.

The ‘Scarecrow’ is a new VIP gift from {what next}. The VIP group has a one time 250L fee to join, but it’s well worth it with regular gifts, plus previous gifts out to grab, too.

The ‘hay bales’ and ‘hay bale w/blanket’ are both from hive. The ‘hay bales’ are decor only but the hay ‘bale w/blanket’ have four sitting animations. The ‘Outhouse’ is also from hive, it’s a one seater and comes in so handy when nature calls!

The ‘Jar of Fireflies’ and the ‘Grunge Barrel Seat’ are both from .::THOR::., and from separate gachas. I can never resist playing the gachas when at the .::THOR::. main store…..I always win, no matter what I get!

The grasses, power poles and windmill are all from [we’re CLOSED].

The ‘Fall Pumpkins & Flowers Toolbox’ and the Sunflower Garden Gacha Table’ are both from gachas from Bee Designs. There’s a great selection of fall and Halloween gachas upstairs, if you’re in need of great seasonal decor.

The ‘Shipping Container’ is from a previous round of Deco[c]rate from 7 Emporium.

The ‘Fresh Eggs’ sign is from floorplan.

And as for my outfit, you ask? Well, I started with the ‘Jessie’ hair and snapback from the ‘Snapback Gacha’ from BesomxFLite! I was so excited to see this gacha at the Besom main store. I’d given up on ever finding it, then a miracle happened! 🙂

The loose and comfortable ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ from !APHORISM! are perfect for a little bit of work.

The ‘Tech Sweater’ is a new release from [Vale Koer] and available at the October round of Kustom9.

I scored the RARE ‘Unisex Boots w/socks’ from NOeditioN. They’re HUD driven with lots of colour options including a socks on/off toggle button. They’re at the new round of The Epiphany.

And the whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which won’t be available til November…but I’m special and got a preview! Thanks, Stephanie. 🙂 It’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

  1. Oh, you’re so lucky you’ve got room to grow pumpkins, Liz! We’ve got a small back garden and sacrificed a greenhouse for a sunroom instead. It is an extra room which is great but I do miss having a greenhouse. When we lived in the west country there was enough room for cold frames, fruit trees and bushes like raspberries and blackberries and a big greenhouse. C’est la vie!

    1. A greenhouse or sunroom would be a difficult choice, but I do love my greenhouse. It’s so nice to have fresh vegetables and some fruit here in the summer. Our 2b zone makes growing much fruit difficult, but in the past 10 years there’s been some good varieties of sour cherries developed which are very good for pies, jams, and sauces…a little tart for my liking raw. I also have some apricot trees but our harsh winters make getting a crop of fruit difficult, in the 9 years I’ve had them there’s been one crop of fruit. But it was spectacular! You’ll have to come for tea and scones with cherry jam one day! 😀
