Thrifty Tuesday – 10 Frugal Finds Under $50!

I cannot believe a week has passed since my last Thrifty Tuesday post – time is flying by!  Anyhow, it’s that time of week again for us to hunt down some gorgeous goodies to treat ourselves to, at a very affordable price tag of $50 or less!  As you’ve probably noticed, the monochromatic colour scheme is back in a big way this year, so I have decided to check out what accessories are out there in this bold and striking  theme.  Monochromatic accents will add sophistication to any space.  So let’s see what fabulous gems we found this week!

Trend Alert! Make Room For Copper and Brass

Move over silver and gold; your classy cousins copper and brass are in town!  These beautiful metals are taking their turn in the metallic spotlight and rightly so.  They bring an old worldly charm to any space in an understated way and are less flashy than their glamorous cousin, gold. They add richness and character to a room and are the must have accessory for 2013.  But as trends come and go, these precious metals only get better with age when cared for.  Copper constantly changes in colour which adds to it’s charm but you can slow down this process with automobile wax treatments a couple of times a year.  And keep brass clean and polished to prevent tarnishing.
