I spent some time with my family today and in usual fashion we went searching for some deals. My mom bought me these beautiful red tulips for $5. I paired them with my lovely, little yellow Hall teapot. This yellow, red, and green combo makes me so happy.

After our grocery store stop for the flowers, we headed to Goodwill. So. Many. Good. Buys. My sister got some great shoes and things for her apartment and I got these… A vintage Vera scarf for $2, brand new kitten heel Seychelles for $7, and a great neutral pair of Dunes suede platforms for $7. All so comfortable and such good prices.  Do you know anything about Dunes? They seem high quality and are super comfy.

With the scarf, I’m going to be revisiting the 10 Ways to Wear a Silk Scarf post from A Beautiful Mess.

Lastly, this lovely little brass pot didn’t come from today but from an Estate sale yesterday. I love estate sales on Sundays. Yes, everything is pretty picked through but it’s all 50% off! This little pot was $3. Perfect for my Christmas cactus. I think I want to make it dull and shiny like Ashley’s DIY over at Design Sponge.


I’m linking up over at Thrift Share Monday with Apron Thrift Girl.

Copper Coffee Date by Etsy

I love copper hues and I love coffee. Why not put them together? That industrial copper hanging light totally looks like it belongs in a coffee shop with worn leather furniture and the smell of espresso. Place some chocolate covered coffee beans in that beautiful paper mache bowl and use the espresso tamper made from a block of copper and a vintage brass doorknob.

I love how that copper-y orange color in the table cloth ties it all together while adding some pops of color. I imagine the copper gilded driftwood and cut moose doorstop as the perfect table centerpieces. Serve up the coffee in those beautiful copper and ceramic mugs and some yummy pastries on those handmade copper glass plates. Fun!

Hope you loved this roundup of beautiful copper and coffee inspired products. Have a wonderful Thursday!
