My search is over.....








Hello there...how are you guys....well I hope! Had a lovley Thanksgiving weekend...spent it up north at my sister's cottage. We were driving home & were in a small town when I looked out the window and saw this scale outside of a junk shop....needless to say I shouted "STOP THE CAR"....much to my delight John did! Five minutes and $20 later we were back on the road...don't you just love it when that happens.....have a great week! x0x0

It is so perfect for your style! I really like it - nice patina. This just goes to show that you always have to keep your eyes open (be looking) and you never know what you'll find. Your dripping candle photo is very nice, too! I had no idea Canada just had Thanksgiving. When I see a cool estate/garage sale driving with my husb my usual phrase is "Hoooold Everything" i.e. stop the car. Snort :)

Very, very nice, Chrissy! Good for you, I am still searching for one. And, as usual, you have staged it so beautifully, you are an artist, girl.

Hi Chrissy!
Happy to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving...that's always my favorite day. Probably because we never do it at my house!
See, you do have the "eye" for finding perfect things! I love the scale and how it's perfectly worn. Of course, it looks gorgeous in your kitchen. :)
Fall is upon us here in the midwest but I'm praying the snow stays away for awhile...long while.
Hope you are good!
