I’ve been lusting after the sets of gold flatware that seem to be popping up everywhere lately. From the beautiful Diane von Furstenberg set to the more economical West Elm set.  With my love for everything gold, it’s literally been haunting me.

This past Saturday, I got myself a pumpkin spice latte and cruised up to one of our little suburbs, Powell, known for it’s antique shops. I was ecstatic to find (in the very last little room, of course) this set of Dirigold flatware made in Sweden. It was a little rough looking, but I thought it might clean up nicely, so I promptly bought 4 place settings.  Before I even got to my car, I was googling about its origins, what it was made of, and how to clean it.

I don’t know too much about it, but I’m still investigating!  I also bought a brass bottle opener (which I used last night and it works flawlessly), and this cute mustard and navy striped tea towel.

I was giddy with excitement over my finds.  I left behind the teaspoon and salad fork of the dirigold at the antique store, and I am contemplating my return to snatch them up too.

My mind is already designing fall and holiday inspired tablesettings using my new flatware!

What would you pair them with?
