So, first off......Vintage Velvet is finished! View the official celebratory post at SYNO.

Here are the gutted pumpkins:
Dan's is on the left, mine are the other two. We have one pumpkin left for Turkey Day festivities. The other remaining one has been sitting outside for a month and it's a wee bit, um... smushy. They're on dishes so they aren't actually touching the wood and won't get hot enough on the bottom to burn the place down (cuz we all know renter's insurance isn't THAT good). Gut scraping goes very fast when your mother-in-law gives you huge-ass metal measuring spoons for Christmas. It seriously only took a minute or two to get all the guts out with the 1 cup scoop. It also helped a bunch to make the sides thin enough to cut through easily.
Oh, and yes, we do have X-mas lights stapled to our porch for decoration ;)

Guess who?My brother (Elvis) and his girlfriend Melanie (the angel) and me hiding at the bottom. And Jason (I call him Red) insisited on getting an action shot of Elvis in the fog machine, so here they are choking on the fumes:Poor Meli is gagging! Can't really see Red's Elvis sneer through all the fog, either.
We didn't take any pictures of Ben sitting in front of the machine huffing the fog because we were afraid of being cited for animal cruelty or something silly like that... Ben sure didn't care though, cuz he sat in front of it for over 2 hours watching smoke puff out.

I have oodles more pictures, but I think that's enough for now. More later!
