#IFPumpkinsmackdown – my entry: “The day my ovaries came to life”

Fertility Doll's Día de Muertos Pumpkin/Day of the dead - Halloween

Inspired by Día de Muertos (Day of the dead)

And lit without the fancy head gear- because I figured it all looked highly flammable and I am not to be trusted with fire..

  1. Ha ha ha… she’s awesome!

    Smart leaving your entry until late in the piece… suss out the competition and then… BOOM! whip out an amazing pumpkin.

    • Nuuuu it was all last minute because I’m wickedly tired! I just knew I wanted to do a day of the dead pumpkin so prepped the feathers and roses. Almost had a last minute disaster because I discovered I only had one tiny tube of white paint. Half the pumpkin is still orange.

    Amazeballs. I’m glad it’s not just a competition between you and me now because you would have won 😉

  6. Brilliant idea! I love the feathers and the colorful Día de los Muertos theme. What a great representation of both the loss and the hope of the IF journey. Your pumpkin bought a big smile to my face and then made me tear up a bit (ahh those hormones 😉 thinking about home (US Southwest) and this neat celebration I grew up around. Thanks for this trip down memory.

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.
