So in the past few months I have decided to spruce up my house a little bit! Everything is a very neutral colour pallet with lots of natural elements in it. Ive always liked that because it goes with everything! But Ive become bored. So I decided I decided to add some colour! I picked an Indigo blue (daring right;)) but just to play off of. So I added a big rug with blue tones in it, some new picture frames, I even purchased some new dinner plates that were blue! For those fancy dinners, you know.
I also really like gold mixed with blue, but you have to be careful that it does look to “royal”, hence why I picked a more indigo blue. So some new flower vases and details here and there, but not over board with the gold. I found this Gold Flatware on Anthropologie that I became OBSESSED with. Its so beautiful and just makes the settings look just that much more amazing! But after gawking at it for hours trying to figure out how to get that same effect without spending $98 on a set of 6. Because come on, thats just a little outside my budget! I gave up, trying to let go of my gold flatware dreams!
So yesterday I had some time to kill in town so I stopped into a local thrift store. Thrift shops are amazing when you know what you’re looking for! The thrill of the hunt is the best part! But when you go in on a whim and score something amazing it just brightens your whole week! Thats what happened to me yesterday. Yes, what I found was GOLD PLATED FLATWARE! 40 pieces for $50!! And in perfect condition non the less! I was so excited I just had to share this with you… you never know what your going to find when you’re thrift shopping!
