    The votes are in, the results are tabulated and we are now announcing the winners of the 2014, 1st Annual “Crack-Me-Up–Lantern” Pumpkin Decorating Contest” (say that 10 times fast, I dare you!).


    There were such a bunch of wonderful, imaginative entries in our just-for-fun, non-competitive competition, all vying for the title of Creator Of The Ultimate Pumpkin Head of 2014!

    And you readers responded, all in good fun, with lots of comments that gave us the giggles about the Crack-Me-Up-O-Lantern entries! (see them all again by clicking above on the contest image).

    Now, a little drum roll please for the winner of the coveted first place and title of Creator Of The Ultimate Pumpkin Head of 2014 ~  Greenside Up. Her “Green Man” rendition pumpkin really caught everyone’s eye!
