Thinking Out Loud...Gold Pumpkins

I need to stop!

I need to stop picking up little pumpkins. I have quite enough little baubles around the house! 

But what's the harm of a small box of pumpkins for a few dollars, (she tells herself.) They won't take up much room in my box of fall décor when I put them away. 

And you know...I seem to get them (pumpkins) in threes. These little gold ceramic pumpkins came in a box of three, so I had no choice. ha ha.

When I stood and looked at the little box of shiny gold pumpkins I just knew they would fit in my house somewhere. I have gold and brass here and no problem finding a place for the pumpkins, right?

Well, I tried these little shiny gold pumpkins here and there to try to find an attractive display. 

I started with them on a blockfront chest. Then I moved them to my great great grandmother's drop leaf table. 

Here they are lined up like little soldiers.

They look much better with light shining on them.

Then I moved them into the parlor. When the sunlight shines on them they just glow. They are still sitting on my pedestal table...but who knows where they will be tomorrow. 

I have to question my purchase. While I like for an item to be flexible for usage, I am still not sure where the best place is for these little gold pumpkins. They are more glitzy than I usually use. I still like them...but have not found a location where they just seem to fit the best. Maybe I am just overthinking the whole thing. I do that! Oh well. 

Hubby says I can fret over the smallest things and not worry about large things. Yes, it's true. :-)
