Modern Monday: Anniversary Presents- year 5

For the five year mark (which D and I will be celebrating in October! woohoo!) the traditional anniversary gifts is wood.  We could spend so much $$$ on anything wood: furniture, decorations, accessories- we love it all! Now, the modern gift is silverware.  I must admit, silverware/flatware really does nothing for me- I don't swoon over it when I see any in catalogs, I don't plan for it, etc.  It's not a big ticket item and to me, it's just not that exciting. Sorry people! Now, I have found a few selections that I like that I'm sharing today but maybe my problem is that I just haven't found the perfect set? Maybe one day... I had to limit my "wood" selections so that I wouldn't go crazy and have the longest blog entry ever so I hope you enjoy a little taste of my favorites.  Here's to celebrating 5 years!
