Thrifty Thursday! 3.22.2012 // Gold Flatware

A while back, I pinned gold toned DVF flatware onto one of my Pinterest boards.



Just a smidge out of my price range. Well, more than a smidge.

West Elm is currently carrying a set too at a fraction of that cost.




Imagine my glee upon finding these puppies at the flea market last Sunday -- at a fraction of the fraction! (I daresay, it might even have been a fraction of the fraction of the fraction.)

They are Swedish and most likely from the 1920's. I mean, how could a flea market find ever be more perfect for me?

Sure, some of you may think they're tacky. I obviously don't. I think they're warm, different, a tad decadent, and perfect for brunch on the patio with bloody marys and mojitos. I do apologize for the photo. I just laid 'em all out, flea market grime and all. I don't have time right this sec to turn them out properly. They're quite lovely in real life, trust.

Take a look at how pretty a table with gold flatware CAN be:

I mean COME ON. Don't you want to pull a chair up to that table?

  4. Lovely! I love these stunning and elegant collections of Sterling Silver Flatware. It's flared edges and graceful lines offer poise and charm for your entertaining. Most antique solid silver cutlery was made in sets that had a unique style; this helped to create a sense of unity for the collection.
