I know I have a problem with Anthropologie.
The reason I love this store so
is because they aren't selling trends as much as
When I was young and broke and a hopeless optimist
I had many friends and often threw informal, spur-of-the-moment soirees.
I had the style of a gypsy and everything was colorful and mismatched,
but somehow it all worked anyhow.
Cutlery was no exception.
The patina of old silver is too beautiful to resist and
quite a collection of flea market bundles found their way home..
Meaning no two were the same :)
A roommate inherited this when I went adventuring
but every so often when setting the table I find myself wishing for those odd forks and spoons..
so am delighted to see this over at Anthropologie:
"antique and vintage delightfully mismatched sets of five"
"each place setting is completely unique"
see? They GET it.
