The other day I was wandering along minding my own business
while shopping HomeGoods…
when it happened.
It was in the seasonal aisle.
Tucked behind the velvet pumpkins and bits of wheat and even little bitty felt acorns.
But it couldn’t hide from me.
I saw that glimmer of mercury glass and blush from a mile away
and knew, I had to see what it was.
What it was- was a treasure.
And there were several of them- which made it kind of like a treasure trove.
This treasure had a charming romantic fairytale feeling.
Something straight out of Cinderella with all that pretty barely blushing and silver mottled glass.
It was a pumpkin.
The most adorable little mercury glass pumpkins with curly q stems and pretty little details.
I fell in love.
And I couldn’t leave them behind.
Especially when I noticed something else.
Here is what the pumpkins look like top to bottom- do you see what I see?
I also saw Christmas.
They look like huge Christmas baubles just waiting to be placed on the tree.
(And yes, I may have styled a tree already and used them as ornaments.)
So, I call that dual decorating potential.
And yes, they came home with me. It would have been a crime to leave that little mercury glass pumpkin patch behind don’t you think?
A bit of a different look from my usual natural autumn- and you can see more in
So what do yo think?
Would these little mercury glass charmers have come home with you?
Happy Wednesday everyone.
