It’s a Bling Thing…

 

This afternoon I found myself anxious to start bringing out the Halloween décor.

However, my daughter is throwing a Bridal shower for one of her friends at my home on Saturday.

Her and her friends will be decorating with a Fall theme.

So to satisfy myself I tinkered a bit.

Went outside and grabbed a couple of pumpkins off of the porch.  Brought them inside and started to bring on the bling!

Fall is a great time to get a bargain price on pots.  These two were 75% off at a local nursery.  The diamond studded pot came just like that.  The other was plain black.  I blinged it up by using Terrifically Tacky Tape and orange glitter.  This tape is fabulous whenever you want a straight line of glitter.  It comes in various widths.  Just apply to surface, peel off protective film.  Sprinkle on glitter and voila!

Two of my friends and I made these cute straw pennants today.  I tied one to the tall pumpkin along with a key and a sweet tag I received with a give away gift that I won a couple weeks ago.  Just received it in the mail yesterday.

The blingy dots and spirals came from a discount store. $3.99 for 2 sheets. I only used about half.

The give away that I won was on Linda at Coastal Charm’s blog. http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com/  Roselle from  http://roselle-seasiderosecreations.blogspot.com/ donated the two items.  These darling mini frames.  One a chalkboard and the other burlap with a key. Be sure and go check  out their blogs, they are delightful..  Thanks so much Linda and Roselle.

Look at these yummy apples that Rianna, my daughters friend dropped off at the house tonight.

They’re for the shower on Saturday.  Hmmm, wonder if she knows that caramel apples are one of MY MOST FAVORITE treats in the world?  She’s really taking a chance there wouldn’t you say?

Now if that doesn’t get you in the mood for Halloween, I don’t know what will.

See you later,

Jann (Hopefully, I won’t have caramel on my face)
