A Copper Convention

Copper is hardly new on the scene, but I’m pleased to see this rosy metal seems to be sticking around for the long haul. From your home to your wardrobe, there doesn’t seem to be a single place it doesn’t fit right in.

This also seems an appropriate time to give a shout out to everyone’s favorite Montana mining town. Butte has a rich copper history and is certainly worth exploring if you happen to be in the area. Stop by the Bonanza Freeze for some classic drive-in fare. Definitely cruise uptown to take in the sights… rumor also has it the iconic M & M will reopen this July.

Now as Mother’s Day nears, my pinterest feed and head are buzzing away in the gift department. I usually have better luck narrowing down possible presents when I have a general theme. Since I was already in a copper frenzy, the choice was clear. Here are a few treats to make Mother’s Day a little more shiny.

 

Copper Gifts Ideas via @ms_elaineious

|| 1. Two-toned leather tote via West Elm || 2. Modern copper clothing rack by TheOther on Etsy  || 3. I rarely need an excuse to eat out, but if you do Mother’s Day seems as good as reason as any. If you happen to be in Amsterdam (which you probably aren’t) there is the copper clad Cafe De Ebeling (Image via Framework Architects). If you’re in Bozeman (a more likely scenario), consider the obvious choice given this post, Copper. I dream about their caramel drizzled popcorn. Heaven. ||  4. Smart and simple, The Aether Cone (in copper of course!!!) is one sexy speaker. || 5. This Luxurious leather card holder by Anve is no ordinary envelope. || 6. World Market never disappoints…  add this copper colander to the winners circle. || 7. I have a copper confession… I’ve added rose gold to my metal collection. But this watch by The Horse was just too beautiful to pass up. || 8. I know I’ve featured a similar pair of these sneaks before, but New Balance can do no wrong and these 574 Precious Metal kicks are no exception.  || 9. Chic copper planter via Yield Design Co. ||
