I’ve never really been a gold girl, but lately this metal has started to grow on me. Adding a splash of gold just seems to fancy things up a bit doesn’t it? (key term being splash people…don’t over do it!) And I’m always looking for ways to continue my journey of becoming the hostess with the mostess and gold seems to be the next stepping stone.
Perhaps it has something to do with the holidays, or maybe I’m just becoming less metal-biased but either way, gold seems to be the metal of choice as of late…
Crush #1 – West Elm’s Gold Flatware. Totally impractical. Totally frivolous. And totally gorgeous.
Crush #2 – Coupe Champagne Glasses. This may have something to do with our impending NYE party theme. Mr. Lemon insists we already have plenty of glasses. I call shenanigans.
Crush #3 – Gold Hippo from High Street Market. Okay, no. Gold hippos do not make you the hostess with the mostess (or DO they?!). And I don’t even necessarily want a hippo, per se. But this guy definitely has me itching to spray paint some little creature gold. And the cats won’t stay still long enough for it be them…
Crush #4 – Gold Mason Jars. I’ve seen these before, but when I saw them again at the Young House Love booksigning, it reminded me how much I loved them! Glam plus practical equals awesome. (photo by Flory Photo)
Crush #5 – Gold Initial Necklace. Initial necklaces are all over the interwebs, but when I stumbled across one on etsy with Mr. Lemon and my initials, I was immediately smitten. And the rose gold heart? I die.
*update – Mr. Lemon got me this necklace for my birthday!
