The Pumpkin Hunter...


I have noticed in the years of being an antique dealer that younger generations have any if any interest in collecting.  They don't want clutter.  They want to be minimalist.  I have recently found myself trying to get my own children interested in collecting so dragging them along with me is not so boring.  I can say my daughter who has just turned four has become quite the collector.

At the time Donnie and I found out we were having a girl, I was at a point that decorating for holiday's was more of a chore than an enjoyment.  JB, my eldest, is big into the Christmas decorating but has little interest in the other holidays.  Somehow having a daughter changed everything.  Our 6 plastic, lighted, molded pumkins we started with has managed to grow to 200 pumpkins, 6 monsters, and trick-or-treat parties and nights Courtney will never forget.

Courtney and her daddy spent their time searching for holiday decorations.  And after this years Fall Extravaganza at Springfield, she has become quite the collector.  I believe she can spot a pumpkin for miles.  She is like any good collector, very focused on her passion and she loves the hunt. This my little collectors photographic log of what she did to get ready for what I believe is her favorite holiday, Halloween.
