Pots of gold

Hello lovely people, we've been a bit washed out here in good old England.  Slightly wet and grey but I have my eyes on a bit of sparkle, especially with Christmas approaching.

I've always been drawn to a little bling, a little gold, and after completing the dining room project, I was liking the gold even more.  I knew I wanted a white and gold plant holder  for the top shelf, but I couldn't find any so while I was in Ikea buying the curtains to sew for the little dining room project I picked up a small plastic plant pot for about £3.  I had left over Montana Gold spray paint and I was on a mission to turn this little white pot into something a little more special.  I used some Washi tape making sure I taped it down firmly and I just sprayed the pot until it was well covered.  I gave it two coats, left it to dry for 10 minutes and popped the greenery in.  It looked fantastic, so much so that I decided to make one for myself. 

And there's a lot of gold happening in interiors as well, so I’ve put together a few of my favourite gold items I've found on the web, they are all affordable and budget friendly!  One of my absolute favourites is the Uashmama washable metallic paper bag...I have to buy one!

It's a miserable night outside, but we are off to our son's formal GCSE award ceremony.
Hope you are snug and cosy inside!
