Golden Inspiration...12 Days of Holiday DIY Link Up

Happy Holidays! 
This is the time of year I think of warmth and family and friends and eggnog and champagne and golden sugar cookies and sparkling lights.
What about you?

Those beautiful and amazing objects that inspire us to create are just as important as the ultimate end product. And when we are lucky, it all magically works together, collaborates if you will, to transform our little world into a more beautiful place.

GOLD 
 has always been one f my favorite colors. When painted, fashioned, and captured correctly Gold is inviting, warm, elegant, whimsical and well purley magical!

So, today, I am sharing what inspires me...the images that spoke to me as I wandered through Pinterest (of course!). 

I REALLY WANT TO SEE YOUR GOLD PROJECTS!
*rooms, furniture, home decor, holiday decor, crafts*
Share! Pretty Please!
I have started a GOLD PINTEREST BOARD and I will be pinning link ups!

These images are all sourced from Pinterest - none of them are mine. You can visit the sources - all are linked to the pin board and the source I could find - through the links below the photo.

THIS IS MY GOLDEN INSPIRATION.
Let me take you on my GOLD Journey.

I would shop and lunch wearing gold and pink (of course)

My nails would sparkle in the most intense glittery gold

I would sip my tea (or champagne) while lounging on this gold masterpiece
_____________________________________________________

I would look out my window, and see that gold is so magical,
even the trees cannot resist it.
_____________________________________________________

I will carry gold paint with me everywhere and make the world a shiny glimmering place.
_____________________________________________________
I will eat gold cake...
or just admire it because it is gorgeous.
_____________________________________________________

I will be whimsical and elegant at the same time.
I will enjoy each and every moment...
_____________________________________________________
...and just might possibly sprinkle gold glitter wherever I go.
