In October, 2014, we picked up a new dog from our local county animal shelter. Shortly after the adoption, Barb began work on the origin story of our latest family member. This evolved into a two-foot high shrine to Pumpkin. The three-story structure includes four scenes of her early life. Included on the all-wood structure are arched openings, ornate railings, clapboard siding and a shingled roof with a widow's walk.
Status: This piece was a labor of love and is now a family heirloom.
Front side of the Shrine for Pumpkin shows the first two scenes in her early life.
View of the back of the Shrine for Pumpkin shows two additional scenes of her early life with us.
The first scene in the Shrine for Pumpkin shows her when she was lost and sleeping in the forest.
The second scene depicts Pumpkin alone in a cage at the animal shelter.
The third scene in the Shrine for Pumpkin depicts her coming home after being adopted.
The final scene in the Shrine for Pumpkin shows her sleeping under a pink blanket in her bed. (Note: Her bed doesn‘t really look like this.)
The top floor of the Shrine for Pumpkin displays the moon and stars.
Here is the latest member of our family, Pumpkin. She is giving you her undivided attention.
