Guest Posting on A Newfound Treasure

Happy Wednesday, all!  Today I’m guest posting over on A Newfound Treasure.

A peak at what I’m lusting after …

I’ve always been a lover of gold.  A few years back when shopping engagement ring styles (he knows better than to surprise me … too much), I only wanted a yellow gold ring.  The jewelers all frowned and gave me a list of reasons why platinum was classic and I’d tire of yellow gold.  I never have, and I never will — I love, love, love my yellow gold setting, thank you very much.
