I have a new obsession with copper kitchen accessories.
So.... this post is super random. It's not a recipe, or craft, or diy, or cleaning tip. I just wanted to share with you some of my new favorite things 🙂
I go through phases of how I want my home decor. Last year, I was all about roosters, and this year, I want everything copper.
I've been wanting a coffee press anyway, but when I saw this one at Marshall's, I had to get it. In fact, everything that I have picked up so far has come from either Marshall's or Ross (I love a good bargain.) But here are a few similar copper coffee presses that I found on Amazon.
I realized how much I love copper after always catching myself admiring copper items. Even during Downton Abbey, when I am usually very strict about no one talking so we don't miss anything, I would blurt out how pretty all of Mrs. Patmore's copper pots, pans, and bowls are.
Literally, for 3 years every time I would see Moscow Mule mugs in the store, I would consider buying them. But I almost never saw them for less than $10 a mug, so I would pass them up.
I was watching a YouTube video the other day about real value. They were basically talking about how you could really want something, but not spend the money on it if you feel it's a little too expensive. But, (and I'm totally guilty of this) you might spend $10 or $20 on junk from Dollar Tree just because each item is only a dollar. So, why not skip the junk you don't need and save up for something you really want instead?
So, that's what I've been doing. I want to fill my kitchen with pops of copper. Instead of buying stuff I don't need, I've been saving up to buy copper pieces a little bit at a time.
It's kinda splurging. I am getting these copper kitchen accessories for pretty good prices, since I can find them at Ross and Marshall's every now and then. Plus I love going shopping at Ross with my mom on Tuesdays. Did you know they have a senior citizens discount on Tuesdays? Well, now you know.
Again, super random post, but I felt like sharing this with you:) And if you happen to know of any other place that has affordable copper pieces, let me know!
Anything you've been obsessing about lately?
