A little tip on preserving your jack O’ lantern:

After carving your pumpkin dip in a large container of water and bleach. (use 1 tsp.: 1 gallon mix) Drain your pumpkin upside down until completely dry. Then mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar with 1teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water and brush onto the pumpkin to keep it looking fresh.

Have a great weekend!
Be love.

The last week before Halloween is positively my favorite. i think it's the anticipation of the holiday itself. I love all of those creative ideas for decorating for halloween. It's a tradition that we carve our pumpkins on Halloween day so I don't need to preserve it. But, that is a great tip if i was to carve it earlier!

Those black kitty cats are so cute. What a clever idea. I love the heart pumpkins, and the picture of the dog is wonderful.

Happy Halloween week, Deserae.
