Bold Brass

toolbox-EDC-11-13-9-lgnAs a Leo Lioness, I am enamored with all things gold, bold, and majestic. I can’t help it, it is in my nature.  Subdued is not in my vocabulary. I love spash and flash, pomp and circumstance, brazen brashness. I live on impulse and feeling, my nature is spontaneity.  I  go in directly in for the kill, say what I think and don’t mince my words. I live for the moment.

I have the same direction when it comes to home embellishments.  I totally covet a great metal like brass, whether it be polished or burnished, decorating the tabletops, bedside tables, bathroom sinks, commodes, and so on.  You can really spruce up an unimaginative sink or cabinet with some bomb pulls, knobs, and handles.  These imaginative and opulent touches will make any room look like it is the little cousin to Versailles or at least striving to be.

Most importantly, don’t be afraid to be over the top. It’s much better than being a dull toad. I’d take that road any day of the week.


Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute! Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Only engage, and then the mind grows heated. Begin, and then the work will be completed.
