Touches of Brass & Gold

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Hey y’all – I’m so glad it’s Friday – and a three day weekend!  Thanks for all the comments and pins on the new bookcases this week – many of you wrote to me asking where I found all the gold and brass accessories for the shelves.  Truth is I find them all over, some of them are many years old, some are newer.  I keep my eyes open for objects that are unique looking, shapely, functional, and ones I know I’ll love for years to come. 

Etsy and antique stores are fabulous sources for old brass objects, and a lot of retailers are now selling accessories in golden shades since these warmer metals are again in vogue.  If you’re on the hunt for accessories to bring a golden touch to your bookcase, wall, or tabletop, here are a few of my favorites found online.
