A new goodie

I have seen many kitchen scales throughout blog land and the more I saw them the more I realized I had to have one! I was on the look out for one whenever I would hit up antique/thrift/junk shops...but I never had any luck. So one night I was telling my Hubby about it. I showed him Michele's blog Dreaming of a farmhouse and her post about her vintage scales. I loved her red scale and told him how I wish I could find a cool scale to use in our kitchen. Well when ever I tell my hubby that I want something but can't find it he always goes right to work looking for it online until he finds it....and finds it at a good price! So sure enough he starts pulling up vintage scales online and asking me what I was looking for...I told him I wanted something aged, chippy, and preferably a cool color. Low and behold this is what he found!!
I love it so much! The color is perfect...better then I had hoped for. The dial is pretty worn but I don't mind, I like it. The price was also oh so nice.....$15.00!
 I am sure this scale will be used in many ways, but for now this is where she resides. I am so happy to have my own vintage scale, and thankful to my Love for finding it for me :) 


Till next time

  1. Hey Rachel! What a great find! I love the color :) We have a restaurant near us that has SOOO many scales and it is so cool how they use all of them as decor! Jessica (aka nucheysmommy) PS> are my updates in your reader coming through since I changed my blog name? Just curious b/c I had one person tell me they didn't :(
