Celebrations: Copper & Glitter Pumpkins {& Halloween Blog Hop}

I’m so glad you joined me today for a special Halloween Project Parade. I’ve teamed up with some amazing bloggers to share Halloween ideas and celebrate the season with a special link party.

I love coming up with new ideas and ways to pretty up those funky looking fake pumpkins you can pick up at dollar stores and discount stores.
