This week's home tour is a my special Halloween gift to y'all — a haunted house in a de-commissioned B&B in Seattle. It's all decked out the way you'd hope a haunted house would be — antique child's coffin coffee table, antique Halloween goods, metaphysical library, "haunted" ventriloquist dolls, and even snakes abound in this house.
After spending several hours carving those wonderful Halloween pumpkins I was left with a ton of pumpkin flesh. Being a little green I just couldn’t bear to throw it all away. So I grabbed my trusty carrot cake recipe, substituted pumpkins for carrots, added a few juicy extra bits, and fed the flesh of a thousand pumpkins to my nearest and dearest!
Did y'all catch that DIY pumpkin keg video that went viral? The moment I saw it I thought, "now THERE'S a Megan-simple pumpkin carving project!" Much like my cooking skills, my crafting skills are, well, let's just say sub-par. I was invited to my friends 5th annual Halloween pumpkin carving contest and I accepted with the express intent of trying my hand at the pumpkin keg. The video makes it seem so simple, spoiler alert: it wasn't!
I bet I'm not the only Offbeat Homie who loves needlecraft with a passion that borders on the obsessive! Now you too can read all about my crazy methods for creating custom cross stitch designs without using cross stitch computer software.
