midas touch

 I hope you and your New Year are up to the gold standard of this diary.  
There is something about gold that keeps luring me with not only it's shine, but the level of quality
and value it seems to radiate.
 A simple golden bangle can add so much warmth on a silvery winter day.
 Does your workout need a little midas touch?
These gold shorts would certainly get me moving.
 Love to have one of these golden circles to serve as a keepsake for my children.  
They mean the world to me.  The golden circle reminds me of just how simple life is.  
Round and round we go.
 This golden cube would be just the sort of precious metal to come home to after a long ride.
 Gold somehow seems to add so much sparkle.  Guess I might as well add some gold to my life this year.  Is it just me or are you going for the gold?  I am off to add some gold to my artwork today.
Do you have the midas touch?

Gold is a good color for the new year...reflecting positive energy for our economy.

I have been strongly drawn to gold lately. I think the metallic shine is warming during these cold, bleak and gray days.

I know your artwork always has the midas touch....so wishing you loads of inspiration today..and always!

I love that gold journal! And gold period. I wear my gold bangles everyday! I friend mine said that her husband purchased some gold for her as investment, and when you do so, rather than a silly piece of paper, you actually get a bag of gold coins! How great is that?! Can't wait to see how you add the sparkle to your work!

These images are fun and if my a** looked that good I would be all over those gold shorts. I'm starting to see gold more but always in modern settings so wondering how it would look with antiques.
