Every day since the great Jack O'Lantern tragedy we've been gluing a few pieces back in. It's been painstaking work. I don't think The Mister will ever get that Gorilla Glue off his fingers.
These are the pieces we have left. We know where they go but they will take a lot of filing to get them in so we are calling this a done deal for now.
She looks pretty good up on her high perch. She will live there the rest of her life. I'll just turn her around so she's just a pumpkin after Halloween.
I always loved the pumpkin cookie jar on the Mary Tyler Moore show so it doesn't seem too weird to me.
Not bad. I gave her a quick orange acrylic paint touch up. She has scars but she earned them, poor thing.
She's got a new dimple too. We are going to patch that with some drywall repair stuff after the holiday. Right now she needs a break and so do we. It was a nerve wracking process.
After she's all together we are going to remove all the duct tape supports we have going on inside her and seal her with this.
While we are on the subject of Halloween let me rant for a moment. All candy corn is NOT the same. The Mister bought me a bag of Brach's which I have completely devoured so I went looking for more only to find no one has it. Instead I picked up a knock off Walmart version. Yuck. Now I see why so many people hate candy corn. There is a BIG difference. I am so disappointed. Ugh.
