Blue Pumpkin, Orange Sky

We're doing Pumpkin Week for school right now. It's nothing fancy. We're just doing a few pumpkin related crafts at the end of our school day. Yesterday we did this one called Blue Pumpkin, Orange Sky. I found it in an old craft book my MIL sent me recently. It's supposed to be an optical illusion thing. What you do is stare at the blue pumpkin for about a minute and then close your eyes. When your eyes are shut you see an orange pumpkin on a blue sky. It's pretty interesting. I'm not sure if it would work for you on the computer screen, but you can try it. Today we're making paper mache pumpkins. Wish me luck! I haven't done paper mache in years, so hopefully it will go okay and we won't make too big of a mess.

In other news -- today is our 4th anniversary of living in this house. We moved to Montana in 2006 and it was on October 26th that we spent our first night here. It's hard to believe we've been in Montana 4 years already. Time flies when you're having fun ...


  1. Time flies whether you're having fun...or not.


  2. I tried the staring thing but it didn't work for me :). But it does look really cool blue!

  3. I just like the image of the blue pumpkin on orange!
