If you asked Rob, he would probably say I have a serious obsession with gold. The other day I told him I was going outside to paint something and his response was, "Let me guess, you're painting it gold." He isn't totally wrong. Looking around my living room there are quite a few hints of gold. What can I say! Sometimes a girl just needs some gold in her life! A few weeks ago my cousin, Jenn, gave me a tea set as a house warming gift. The tea pot and tea cups were white porcelain but knowing me well she gave them to me with the intention that I would jazz them up a bit! I woke up this morning to a miserable grey day. As I was making breakfast I opened the cupboard and those little tea cups were staring out at me. It was like a little gold lightbulb popped up above my head. I grabbed the tea set and a gold sharpie and got to work! *Note: online reviews say to use an oil based Sharpie instead of a regular one. I only had a regular Sharpie and no desire to go out in the pouring rain, so that's what I used. I just plan on washing these gently. I popped them all onto a baking sheet and into a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. I haven't washed these yet but my fingers are crossed. They aren't perfect but I kind of love that about them!
