I am a Victorian Soul, who lives in a small townhouse that was built in the mid 1970's, not a huge Mega Mansion!! I just recently lost my Hubby Joe, who was a Retired Letter Carrier. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before I had Knee Replacement Surgery and officially Retired in 2019 after 41 years working in Direct Patient Care ... I am so glad that we retired at 62 years of age and got to spend that time together before he passed....I still do love Retirement!!!!

Been Playing With Pumpkins Again!!

Last year, I did a post on "blinging" up some pumpkins.........

Click HERE if you missed it.....

A few weeks ago, I bought some bags of leaves and a bag of acorns at Dollar Tree......
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

I want to Thank Dagmar, over at  Dagmar's Home, for featuring that post from last week's Thrifty and Vintage Finds Link Party!!!
Thanks so much, Dagmar!!!

Pease stop by and link up to this great party!!

I decided to add the leaves and acorns to some of my pumpkins to "Bling" them up a bit more since my theme for the Living Room is An Elegant Fall Theme in the Living Room!!
What a difference it made!!
First, more bling on a few velvet pumpkins.......
I also used some small ornaments on top of the pumpkins.....
The mesh leaves from Dollar Tree are glittered.....
Some light colored pumpkins and 2 crystalized pumpkins.....
These are pumpkins that I spray painted gold and copper a few years ago.......
Some stickers were added to this pumpkin....
And some glittered pumpkins that were bought on Clearance.....
These 2 pumpkins were bought on Clearance last year at Big Lots so I blinged them up too!!
And 2 green pumpkins and another crystalized one........
I had fun playing with these pumpkins, making them look a but more elegant.....
I am finishing up decorating the Living Room in an Elegant Fall Theme....

Up next, will be my Elegant Fall Living Room Tree........
This is actually the Tree that I had used in the Dining Room for years and I will tell you more about that in my next post.........

So I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
