Gold Flatware and Happy Friday

Happy Friday!  I do love Fridays!  I'm looking forward to seeing friends, going to beautiful kid birthday parties, and relaxing at home with my family. 

As you can probably guess by the photos above this happened.  Its funny because I am not an impulse shopper at all.  I usually take my time, think things through and usually end up not buying what I thought I wanted. And this last Wednesday in a matter of seconds I got two sets of this gold flatware set so fast I barely know what was happening.  I could not be happier.  I think these gold pieces will make my tablescapes so much more fun and varied. (By the way I'm mesmerized by that leaf napkin ring.  Fabulous. It is from here).  Here is another option for gold flatware from West Elm.

Can you believe this table setting?  In love....and they are mixing and matching silver and gold flatware...interesting....I could use my new Staffordshire dogs to do something like this:

And for some link love:

||  I was honored to have the Anya Hindmarch Valentine's gift ideas mentioned in D Magazine's online Shoptalk.  See it here.

|| A big thank you to Blue Hydrangea for posting my Lindsey Adelman DIY chandelier.

||  My sweet friend introduced me to Copy Cat Chic.  Reichel does such a great job of finding less expensive options for high end furniture.  What a treat!

|| These Fallen Princess photographs from Couture Zoo took me by surprise.  Very intense. 

|| Hannah from Champagne Lifestyle on a Beer Budget did the DIY Mongolian Lamb stool.  She added her touches and it came out looking great.  Take a look.

Ok cuties. Happy Weekend.  See you in a few!
