We are so happy that you are joining us today!
Hello everyone! I am happy to be here with you today. Are you feeling the Fall weather where you live? It has actually been chilly here. I know, that is crazy for Vegas, but it has been in the low 40s in the evenings. It is time for some hot chocolate, and homemade turkey chili and even my broccoli and shrimp skillet meal. Yum!
Today I have gone through my blog posts for my October Highlights. We are already half way through Fall. Thanksgiving is a few weeks away. Winter will be here in 5 weeks! And there are only just a few weeks until Christmas.
Hello, hello! I am so excited to let you know about the Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration! I am also excited to be partnering with Dollar Tree to share their special Anniversary Event Bonus Buys! I am a huge fan of Dollar Tree for many reasons. I like their craft section, Holiday decor, snacks, and drinks. AND, I can save even more during the anniversary celebration!
Let me tell you all about it…
Anniversary Event Details:
Celebrate Dollar Tree’s anniversary from Sept. 28, 2014 through Oct. 11, 2014 with tons of new Bonus Buys with up to 58% more FREE for each item! Can you believe that?? 58% MORE for each item! Wow! Do you know what this means? Larger packages, larger quantities all for the same price!
The Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration is coming just in time for me over the upcoming months and Holidays. As you know I have 21 grandbabies. Their ages range from 15-1 yr. During the Holidays I will need lots of snacks. Things like popcorn, goldfish crackers, Sunny D drinks, quick dinners, condiments, and even Tide detergent for those messy crafts we will be making. Why would I pay more somewhere else when Dollar Tree is having their anniversary celebration?
Many of your brand-name favorites are available for a limited time in larger sizes, but are STILL only $1 each. From cleaning supplies and home décor, to health and beauty care, snacks, beverages, and so much more, Dollar Tree stores will be packed with super savings.
Shop in stores and EVEN online for these two weeks, but remember — quantities are limited, so hurry in today to stock up on these incredible deals!
While shopping at Dollar Tree, stock up on your Halloween decor, candy, costume accessories and more. It’s only a $1, so why not??
I bought everything from the straw wreath to the moss and ALL of the creepy accessories at Dollar Tree. How fun is that???

Don’t you just love Pottery Barn? But don’t love the prices? I know, me, too. A few weeks ago I shared my DIY Pottery Barn Knock-off Glitter Book Page Pumpkin. I made it before I started a blog, so I wasn’t ever able to share the tutorial.
Well, today is your lucky day! I have the tutorial for my Pottery Barn Knock-off Glitter Book Page Pumpkin for you today! Woo! I knew you would be as happy as I am!
Isn’t she lovely?
I started out with a store bought plastic pumpkin. Easy enough, right?
Using flat paint, I painted over the orange so it would show through my decoupaged book pages.
While the paint was drying, I tore out a few pages from my 1941 dictionary that I bought for a dollar. This dictionary has lasted me through garlands, wedding decor, wedding dinner, and now for my Glitter Book Page Pumpkin. And I still have more pages to work with. Woo!
Once the paint was dry, I could begin to layer my torn pieces of dictionary. I used a high gloss decoupage from Martha Stewart. On my waste basket, I used matte. But, I wanted this pumpkin to glitter and shine!
When the decoupage was dry, I added twine with hot glue around the stem with a long tail. I always like the pumpkins with the long stems, don’t you?
I liked adding a little moss for extra texture around the stem and along the “tail”.
Using a silver glitter spray, I sprayed all around my pumpkin. Oh, how she makes me smile!
I thought an old key would be the icing on the cake. What do you think? I just love the look of my DIY Pottery Barn Knock-off Book Page Glitter Pumpkin.
Do you think you will make one?
Have you seen my Bling Pumpkin yet? Loving my pumpkins this Fall.
I hope you have signed up to receive my posts by email. I don’t want you to miss out on anything!
As you know by now, I enjoy going to thrift stores and finding items and turning them into treasures. I haven’t always done this. It has just been within the last 2 years that I have started this new hobby or obsession. (hehe) I am excited to show you my latest thrift find DIY bling pumpkin. I have been out shopping, really just looking to see the Fall and Halloween decor. I love the feeling of Fall and all the glitter and bling that now adorn the decorations.
I bought this lovely for 75 cents.
I like her chippy look and texture. But, after seeing all the bling and glitter, I thought, “Why not fix this pumpkin up and add a little bling?”
I started off by painted her white, using a flat wall paint.
You know how much I love blue, so instead of green, I thought a blue stem would be the perfect touch. The sticker strips are really easy to use. Cut the size you need, peel off the back and you are set.
Once I had my stem ready, I was ready to add the orange bling. I cut strips of 2 and 3 wide for variety.
And Voila! A DIY Bling Pumpkin is just minutes.
For pennies, I now have my own version of bling pumpkin. What do you think?? Doesn’t she look great??
I am happy to share my DIY Bling Pumpkin with you. I love reading your comments and try to respond to everyone.
