Exception The The New Rule

The lovely man with whom I live declared a mid-century modern moratorium until further notice because, and I quote, our house is "starting to look like a Mad Men set."

........................I know, right?

Because we each get veto power about what comes into the house, I was prepared to sell these on ebay. I was. I would not have hidden them in my underwear drawer, occasionally cradling them like two silver and teak babies. No. I would definitely have sold them on e-bay. Thankfully he made an exception because they're so small.

$5 at a thrift store. To see more of our House and Garden blog, visit


  1. My dream is to find a pair like that but with ceramic instead of stainless steel.

    I have a salad server problem. I think I have like four or five sets and it's just the two of us!

  2. These are lovely! I have some cute ones that I found in a thift store that have gingko biloba leaves as the spoon bit.
    Thank you for visiting my blog. nice to hear I am not the only creative nurse

  3. On the way to your blog now :)

    This set is GORGEOUS. Yep, I can see why you'd beg to keep these two. Lovely photos, too.

  4. I love these, they remind me of something my grandmother had (which I love now but thought was awful 10 years ago)

    Congrats on convincing the man!
