pick a pumpkin; day four . . .

Did you see my Pick a Pumpkin post yesterday?  Have mercy, I sure hope so!  Click here if you missed it and the GIFTAWAY!  For that matter, if you missed my postings on Day 1 or Day 2, feel free to go back and check those out, too!
Today is the final day of the hop -- Day Four - and here's the lineup of blogs to check out today:

I'm going four for four on the Kindle freebie shares!  Today's offering is Pumpkin Desserts Value Pack III – 150 Recipes For Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Torte, Muffins, Bread, Trifle, Scones and More (The Ultimate Pumpkin Desserts ... Desserts and Pumpkin Recipes Collection 12) another one by Pamela Kazmierczak.  Wow, that's a mouthful, isn't it??!  Still, the muffins on the cover looked yummy and it's free, right? Nothing ventured, nothing gained, and nothing lost if you don't like it. It's a pared down version of yesterdays, with a couple of new introductions.  :)

Today's pumpkin joke is again courtesy of . . .

Q: What do adventurous pumpkins do for fun? 
A: Go bungee gourd jumping!  Tee hee!  

Fun pumpkin fact:  Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and healing snake bites. I've never worried about freckles, but I believe I'd seek something more substantial for a snake bite!

And for the last time, a wrap-up of some of my favorite pumpkin projects from years past . . .

You are definitely the queen of all things pumpkin, my friend!
I have one of those finished mug rugs (too cute to cover with a mug) hanging on my kitchen wall right now. I'll send you a photo!

Sew Fun just to come and see what the Joke of the day is. LOL you made me laugh 3 days in a row. I like the twine pumpkins, did you have to stiffen the twine? Thanks for Blogging and sharing.

You've got a very fun collection of pumpkin projects. I remember some of those showing up on the blog in years past. Enjoy what's left of the autumn weather. I think we've slipped right into winter.
