February is upon us and it won’t be long now till we find ourselves glued to the t.v. and watching athletes ‘Going for the Gold”
Myself, I have never been a lover of gold. Silver has always been much more my style. Even my wedding rings were silver (white gold).
So when my daughter, Kylee asked if she could host her friend, Rianas bridal shower here (which of course, I said you bet) and she told me that her colors were pink and gold I was not all together thrilled.
But just look at that. . .I feel a tinge of gold love coming on!
Kylee had Pinterest inspiration. So one day while she was at work I helped her out by spraying the insides of some mason jars with gold paint I had on hand. Super easy! Just held them sideways and gave a little squirt now and then, turned and repeat. Go easy, don’t want a lot of runs. A little just gives it character.
Now, back to this gold thing. Always considered myself a silver (2nd place) kind of gal. Although I did get a superior grade after reciting a poem in Spanish at the BYU in 6th grade. I can’t hardly even remember that, but I have the award to prove it. lol!
Kylee cut little triangles from gold metallic paper. I sewed them together. As I sewed, those sweet little things kind of stole my heart. Couldn’t decide whether they reminded me of flying geese (used in quilting designs) or fish skeletons.
Yup, pink, white, and gold looking prettier and prettier! Notice the age on this old mirror? Love it! And yes, there’s a bit of silver showing through. Here we go again!
Oh yeah, and in grade school I could run pretty darn fast! I remember that I could outrun all of the girls and there was only one boy who could beat me. We played a game called pomp and I could just run past those boys and not get pomped. I think you can get the picture.
Kylee made this sweet tassel garland. Love, love it!
Kylee’s style. . .simple and sweet! Maybe her mama needs to take lessons!
In Jr. High I would always run relays, carrying the baton and such at Alpine Days. An event held yearly with neighboring schools. I remember winning some ribbons there too. And I could jump a pretty mean running long jump.
More flowers placed on the table. . .
I don’t usually enter my quilts into shows, but did once and a baby quilt got best in it’s category. I won a few other ribbons on other quilts. No Golds!
and a small pink & white tassel hanging from the light. Which, in case you hadn’t noticed, is silver by the way.
Closed doors on the hoosier, to simplify. Gotta hide all of that red! Another little banner.
Well, you won’t find me strapping on any skis and doing aerials off of slopes. . .or pirouetting in ice skates that’s for sure! Now days I won’t be running any races, passing batons, doing long jumps, or speaking much Spanish. And I’m sure I would get pomped. Might be kind of fun! Hee-hee!
But, come to think of it, I guess I like GOLD a little more than I realized
Go USA – GO FOR THE GOLD! Silvers not bad either.
How about you? Do you prefer silver or gold?
I will be sharing with these lovely parites:
