Some New Copper in the Kitchen!

Yesterday I was at Home Goods and they have gotten alot of new copper pieces in! I was drawn right to it. I used to have a very nice collection of copper pieces and then got rid of all of it several years ago....pre blogging and pre this house. I am loving it again so am collecting, slowly. I only buy nice copper pieces and on sale:) As something new comes in then the moving dance begins again. One thing leads to other things moving :)  This is how this wall looked yestersday. I decided I wanted the new copper piece where the basket with the hanging plant is. I also may move the Hummel bee rings, I know where they will look very nice.
 I thought I would show you what is also here, a gift I got from Colleen at Christmas:):) This will NOT move!
 I will share where this ends up soon. I love this basket as it has an iron scroll top and bottom that is hidden by the plant right now. Did you notice the pottery wall swith cover?
 Here is the new pot in place! It came with a paper that said it was solid copper and it has the nice heavy handles too. LOVE it!
 A few weeks ago I got this copper colander. I used to have one just like it. It, too, has the nice heavy handles. Next to it on the wall is a fish mold that I love too. I am seriouly thinking about getting a pot rack and if I do I will then I will hang some copper on it and other neat things!
 I know this basket looks dusty in the pictures but I cleaned it and it must be the way the sun is shining on it.
 When I turned the kitchen lights up it looked better:)




 
So there you have it. Do you like copper? I was silly when I got rid of it cause I thought it was not "in style" anymore. I now use what I love and do NOT follow trends or fads. My advice to anyone is to fill your home with what YOU love. Have a beautiful weekend my friends.
XO, Pinky

  1. Hi Pinky! I love your copper and you have some very pretty pieces too! I used to collect copped molds and when my daughter moved out, she took them! Well, I guess I gave them to her. Your kitchen is so lovely and what pretty things you have. I like the copper hanging on the sides of your cabinets too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  3. I think the "in style" and"not trendy" bug has bitten us all over the years. So much happier when I stay true to what I love! Your molds look absolutely wonderful. Jane

  5. Isn't if funny that at a certain point in our lives we learn to use what we love in decorating? I like copper, too, and the warm glow it gives to a space. Which reminds me...I need to polish my copper tea kettle. Love seeing your collection.

  11. Pinky, thanks for sharing your copper finds. Yes, we live with copper here. My husband has collected copper since before we married. He cooks with copper pans, and we have molds too. We like copper with an aged patina. It doesn't stay shiny if you use it in the kitchen. '-)
