Still Life With Robin: Pumpkin-Palooza!

by Peggy Robin

If you haven’t carved your pumpkin yet, maybe it’s because you need some inspiration. The “Trumpkin” Donald-Trump-faced pumpkin is all the rage this year, and you might want to pile on. To see some of the most creative pumpkin-based portraits, see:

If you want to do something different, try painting or decoupage instead of carving:

If you want to think outside the round orange gourd, apply your art to other vegetables or fruits.

And now for a little post-Halloween news you can use:

To donate your leftover Halloween candy to Operation Gratitude, delivering packages of candy to our service men and women overseas, you can drop the goods off Sunday, November 1 through Tuesday, November 3 at the front porches of:

4820 Dorset Avenue; Chevy Chase, MD
4104 Franklin Street in Kensington, MD

If anyone is collecting donated Halloween candy closer to Cleveland Park, please feel free to post the drop-off instructions on the ClevelandPark Listserv or leave the drop-off instructions as a comment, below.


Still Life Life With Robin is published on the ClevelandPark Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Saturdays.

  1. If you have any leftover Halloween candy, please consider donating it for Wounded Warriors -- wounded, ill, and injured troops, veterans, and their families and staff in D.C. area military hospitals. Candy may be dropped off through Sunday, November 8.

    Drop-off location is my English-Tudor style house at 2939 Newark Street NW, behind the Uptown Theater and about 500 feet west of Connecticut Ave. We have a covered porch.

    As many of you know, my husband (“Clown Gary”) and I (“Clown Judy”) volunteer regularly as clowns at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC); the Washington, DC, Veterans Administration Medical Center; and for various local non-profit organizations.

    Thanks very much on behalf of our military men and women! If you have any questions, please email me at JKOPFF at AOL dot COM.
