TVTA pumpkin teaser, my new wife, and an ad-blast from the past!

Greetings vintage mates. Here is a teaser for this Halloween’s TVTA pumpkin creation… possibly my most ambitious pumpkin to date as it comprises more than 20 components across 3 elements, plus a background! Below are 4 mini pumpkins to be used along with some acrylic paint and, erm, chopsticks. Long-time readers will know that I make a pumpkin creation each Halloween for TVTA πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ

Clues: the creation is based on a classic piece of children’s literature which is known across many generations as a popular and fun story to read!

The protagonist is a type of creature somewhat prone to change!

750 vintage points up for grabs if you can name the title of the story the pumpkin is based on. Bonus points galore for just wildly guessing anything! All being well I should have the creation ready for posting on Monday 31st! πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ

In other news…

TVTA just got married, again!

Meet my new wife, Lucretia. Pictures taken on our honeymoon in the corridors of a local French nuclear power station.

Lucretia says I’ve put on weight since our engagement, but, I mean, c’mon, just look at her slender figure… enough to make anyone seem tubby standing next to her.

True love! ❀β™₯πŸ’˜ πŸ’€ πŸ₯°β€

And in other news…

Here is an ad-blast from the past

  1. Love the Shrunken Head Kit!
    I suppose today it would be a virtual kit. Doesn’t seem as much fun.
    Noting Vincent Price, I must say his many movies were played this last week! He sure had a unique career. xox

  2. Congratulations, your wife has lovely teeth. Hope you have a very long nuclear half life together. Werewolfs change Dracula changed to a bat, Jackyl and hide changed. No idea but excited to see the resulting pumpkin

    • Thanks Neo. Will pass on the compliments to Lucretia about her teeth. She does have a nice set, and I love the way they glow in the dark when she sets them in her glass tumbler for the night on the bedside table.

      400 vintage points coming your way for some excellent thinking based on ‘things that can transform’ πŸ‘


  3. Well, congratulations to TVTA and Lucretia! She does look marvellous (as do you, of course). Did she have loads of people to get her ready on the big day or was it just a skeleton crew?

    That Shrunken Head ad is horrifying! I had a teacher in Year 3 who looked a bit like that…

    Not sure on the pumpkin just yet, but I suppose at least this way it’ll be a surefire surprise!

    • Thank you, Jacob, the happy couple are doing their best to stay marvellous for the forseeable future. 200 vintage points to you for the ‘skeleton crew’ joke 😁

      Yeah, that Shrunken Head ad is just bonkers! Lol at one of your old teachers looking like that. It reminds me a bit of my old boss when I left school, that and the fact he looked like a Mad Balls toy…

      Yippee! I finished my pumpkin tonight! It looks even better than I imagined!

      • Glad to hear it 😎 And thanks for those extra vintage points.

        Haha, there’s probably something in a story or game about scary teachers/bosses who look a bit like Madballs.

        Yay, nice one! Looking forward to it i:)
