The Colours of Christmas ~ Gold

When we first got married, we bought a new tree, and needing to remain frugal, I saved match boxes, oxo boxes and toothpaste tubes and wrapped them up in paper and then simply sprayed them all gold.  They were the start of my gold obsession and over the years, my cans of gold spray paint have come out every year to make new decorations fit in. Since the early days, a fair bit of white has also crept in and the boxes have been replaced with an assortment of other decorations.
Gold is of course one of the gifts given by the wise men in recognition of the Kingship of the baby Jesus.
