utilitarian!

Danish Modern silverware

Some of my favorite thrifting finds have been the mundane treasures; the everyday items that usually go unnoticed. A fork is a fork, it serves an ordinary purpose, but finding an especially right fork can be a bit of a thrill.
Today I found this 45+ piece Danish Modern flatware set for five dollars. With their smooth, sleek handles and pleasant shapes, these otherwise-boring kitchen denizens will make more of a positive impact on my everyday than any delicate antique or priceless collectible. Five dollars just made every meal a little more special.

Man... It just always seems like "everyone but me" finds these FAB finds... This one particularly stings as these remind me so much of the stainless we used when I was a kid.

Good for YOU, these are so cool!

These are just *great* - I simply love a good cutlery find - especially of the wooden handled ilk.
