This board was originally inspired by beer because 1. I got to taste our first homebrew this weekend (delicious) and 2. I spent Saturday in Minneapolis (where I was for BlogHer Handmade/The Creative Connection – more on that to come) with my cousins at the annual Autumn Brew Review festival. So while I started with beer on the brain it started morphing into the amber color of fall (because it was brisk up in MN!) and my ongoing love for gold. For the first 90% of my life I eschewed gold for silver, white gold and platinum colored pieces but now gold feels so modern and I can’t get enough!
