It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving, and nearly all the United States citizens are posting Thanksgiving pictures and pictures of their Christmas trees
and talking about the Cyber Monday sales, and well,
here at the little ol’ cottage we’re just busy catching up on some sleep. :)
We had a special holiday weekend, hopefully with a few pictures to come, and enjoyed family time to the gills with my husband’s family and then with some cousins from my family stopping by!
It was lovely, and today we are just trying to recuperate from the good times. :)
So until I get the pictures edited from the weekend, here are a few of my latest crush
– the color GOLD.
If you know me, you know that I love little details.
I love to see God in the little things of life,
and celebrate His beauty and character in those things!
Here is just one more little thing that I’m learning to love. :)
I know, I know ~ until this fall I thought gold was such an ’80’s color.
And that it was OUT. Out with the big poofy hair and big puffed sleeves.
… Until this fall. And suddenly, I’m crushing.
Here are a few little ways that I’ve learned to love gold.
And perhaps, just perhaps, some of you will too. :)
… gold glitter belt.
It gives a fun little sparkle, just a touch of fun and a small pop of color.
… gold Christmas mug
with hot steaming coffee to anticipate the coming season!
[gifted from a friend several years ago]
… gold painted pumpkins!
These have been greatly enjoyed,
but this week, they will be exchanged for Christmas things.
… Gold paint.
As a DIY-er, paint is a general favorite around here. :)
One of these is a gold, and one is a glitter gold.
I used these for anything from leaves to pumpkins to…
… gold shoes!
I bought neutral-colored flats at Goodwill, and painted them with one coat of gold, and then a top coat of glitter gold. I love how they turned out, and now wear them all. the. time!
… phone covers.
My other sister got me hooked on gold nail polish.
It’s surprisingly very neutral, but still just the right pop of pretty and sparkle.
… antique dishes & china.
These are so fun for special dinners and tea parties.
… gold paint pens.
These are found at Walmart, Joann Fabrics, Michaels, or A.C. Moore in the craft department, and they are so pretty for a little packaging touch, for name tags, envelopes,
and just all kinds of creative things. :)
And, as a believer in Jesus Christ,
one day I will be walking on streets of gold with my Savior and other people I love!
How exciting and wonderful will that be?!
Happy Monday, you all!
What is YOUR seasonal crush? :)
