Celtic Halloween Pumpkins by Navanna Celtic Halloween Pumpkins by Navanna
My little pumpkins carved with the Celtic Tree of Life, and the Triquetra, my favorite symbols! :) I love Samhain...

The Tree of Life is dedicated to my sweet friend Cathrine <3

And of course I always make pie and toasted pumpkin seeds from the leftovers, that's the main point, isn't it? ;P

Small pumpkins, big and not very sharp knife... But at least I finished.

Amazing!!!!!How did you manage to carve that so well? Did you have to throw them away or how did you manage to keep them fresh...or dried?

It was quite a pain carving it, lol. Since I had such bad tools. So I had to be very patient. I had to throw them away some days later, yes. But I made pie of the fruits flesh. :)

Hmm, miam!:P The pumkins I used to carve were not good for pie, but you could eat the seeds, they just had to be toasted on the oven! So delicious!But these pumkins have a thick peel and I always had such a hard time carving them!

*lol* My patience is very restricted in some areas, other things I can keep on forever. Well, if you really need to know, I'm a virgo with a scorpio ascendant. :O Yeah, it's a curse..........

Cool! Virgoes and Scorpios tend to get along very well and you are a 2 for 1 for another Virgo.

On my side I'm a Virgo with a Gemini ascendant with a lot of Libra in my other planets... and not patient, nor confident in my own endeavours :( I do appreciate others' Art and efforts though :lol:

Hehe, to be honest I don't care much about the zodiak, even though I know more about it than most people. I've been into both celtic, chinese, vedic, mayan astrology and also various zodiak systems... and what matters is how you see yourself!
And how others see you. If you think of me as a virgo, that's who I will be -for you ;P

As for me, I prefer a private session with the stars themselves. Humans are not trustworthy in these matters.

Skjærer man først ut gresskar, anser jeg det som nærmest vanhellig å ikke spise "innmaten".

if you dont mind me asking, how did you do this. it is so lovely and awesome. i would like to try it.could i ask how you got it to look like its just floating in the middle?

:iconnavanna:
Navanna Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009   General Artist
First I draw the motive, attach it to the pumpkin and needle stitches the pattern. Then I carve from the middle. Through the edges I did only carve half way through the pumpkin "skin". Hope that was clear enough for you :)

Utrolig nydelig!Så vakkert :aww:
Elsker det symbolet og alt det står for :heart: (ble kjempeglad da eg klarte å finne et fint sølvsmykke med det da vi var i Skottland i sommer, hadde sett etter lenge *ler*)
Og elsker virkelig Samhain...

;per du får en fortreffelig aften!
God Samhain:)

Takk kjære deg :) Det er nyydelig ja, fikk med meg et bilde av det hjem fra Skottland, og har beundret det symbolet så lenge.
Heldig du er som har det som smykke... jeg er slik at jeg MÅ ha gyldne metaller, så jeg ble litt trist da de nesten bare solgte keltiske smykker i sølv både i Skottland og Irland ;P Men jeg har da noen.. ihi.

Måtte du ha en nyyydelig aften også!

Er selv stadig på jakt etter smykker i gyldne metall, syns de står mye finere til klær i grønt og brunt (som eg hovedsaklig går i), men som du sier er det nesten umulig å finne, alt er i sølv... får hå;pe vi finner mer etterhvert:)

Jepp, jeg og en finsk venn av meg tenkte på å begynne å produsere bronse- smykker. Inspirert av naturen og keltisk og art nouveau... Venter fremdeles på eikeblad- og eikenøttsmykket han skulle lage til meg en gang *kremt* ;P

Men sølv er bra da, har bestillt ionisert sølv som kosttilskudd nå, haha. Får hå;pe jeg ikke blir blå.

Om dere noen gang gjør det får du gi en lyd;)

Ionisert sølv faktisk! O.o Merkeligste kosttilskuddet eg har hørt om *ler* Får satse på at du ikkje blir blå ja, eller at du uten å vite det er en varulv =P
