As a child, Halloween was only that thing we saw when watching American TV shows, and was always dismissed as being American. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but the States were just, not us, you know?
Fast forward twenty years and stores are pushing Halloween paraphernalia out the wazoo. What the hell dudes? Kids are starting to trick-or-treat. This offends me.
To be honest, I don't even know what Halloween is. It's apparently to celebrate the end of Summer? Well, hello Australia, we're in Spring now. SPRING DAMMIT!. So, what relevance does Halloween have to us? I just see it as a way for greedy kids to try to con free lollies out of me. I have news for you greedy kids: it ain't gonna happen. If you knock on my door tonight, you'll be getting a blank stare. I refuse to play along. Actually, I really don't care what you do greedy kids, but I'm still not giving you free lollies.
Anyway, all this pfft Halloween gobbledegook was really a segway for me to show off some stuff I own. If I know one thing about Halloween, it's that Halloween = pumpkins! Right? Right? I mean, if there's one thing my blog reading list is telling me is that pumpkins are so hot right now. If I see another pumpkin crochet pattern... I'll probably do nothing, but seriously, how many do you need?
You probably don't remember, but I am collecting vegetable shaped soup tureens. My first acquisitions were a sweet cauliflower and aubergine design.
Progress in building my collection has been slow, but recently I got this totally gorgeous piece! IT'S A PUMPKIN and therefore topically relevant at the moment!
Isn't it beautiful?? I've also acquired smaller receptacles, which I am calling 'mini tureens' which I'm sure is incorrect. Look at the watermelon, isn't it rad?? I need to have me a partay so I can make guacamole and serve it in the avo.
And the whole tureen family so far! I am totally in love with them, can you tell?
Happy Halloween, I suppose.
