Mama always said, "All that Glitters Ain't Gold." While although true, it sure comes close.
I bought this urn on ebay. It was labeled "mercury glass." Although obviously an imitation probably fabricated with gold spray paint, I love it. It is perfect with this Made in Italy gold tray.
I have a fetish for vanity mirrors. This sweet little 3" oval mirror is perfect for those miniature perfume sets. Gold and white always make me think of weddings. Weddings-always a reminder of promise.
"White Lace and Promises, a kiss for luck and we're on our way, we've only just begun..."
I grew up singing The Carpenters. My best friend sang, "We've Only Just Begun" at my wedding. After almost 34 years, it still seems we've only just begun. The gold band symbolizes the circle of eternal love-yes, tried, it seems, by fire at times.
One of my favorite verses, "But He (my Heavenly Father) knows the way that I take and when he has tried me, I shall come forth as GOLD." Job 23:10
