Gold & More Gold - Polka Dots and Chevrons

I know, I know, I need to stop, but this is just so much fun and I love it.  I have shown you how I transformed a plain buffet into my desk area here, here and here.

I am still into gold and it just seems that I keep finding all kinds of fun things that I just have to have.

I already have a fabulous gold trimmed cup for my morning coffee - -

but I didn't have anything special for my afternoon coke or tea, so when I saw this gold polka dot glass, of course I had to have it. (See that really thick base, this thing weighs a ton, so I get my workout while I drink my coke.)

My new Iphone needed a new case, so guess what I got.  Of course, gold and white chevrons.

 Besides the fact that I love the look, my coke definitely tastes better in a gold polka dot glass and I am certain the Iphone works much better with it's gold case too. - haha
