Vintage Hanging Scale

The perfect chippy, dirty, old, rusty and green scale now hangs in my kitchen.

I actually got it for my ETSY shop, but just could not get rid of it.

Can’t you see why I kept it?

I have recently added some neat things to my Amys All Things Home Etsy Shop.  Stop by if you have a few extra minutes to look around.

Good night all.  Blessings!

Oh Amy, I love this! Such a unique find and it looks great....and you can change out what sits in there so easily. Maybe when you tire of it, you can put it on etsy. I'm sure it will get snapped up quickly.

Happy Sunday night to you.

Hi Amy! What a wonderful find! And the answer is NO! I couldn't have parted with it either!! I have been having that same struggle with a few things lately!! But I have some goals for my savings account, so into the shop they go!!

Have a lovely week!!
Hugs to you!

Oh Amy! I wouldn't part with it either. It's perfect for your kitchen. What a find. I love it's rusty, crusty finish!

Love it!! I found your blog last week and have since spent WAYYY too much time reading back through. I love all your old beat up treasures. Even though I decorate with darker coloured primitives, I enjoy reading about your amazing finds and your love of the Lord.

The scale is gorgeous! Will take a look at your etsy shop.

I love it!! I have one as well but I painted mine white. I love the chippiness and rust that yours has and it is so fun to put things in the baskets :)
have a great day!

I have tried to post here since yesterday, and I can't seem to get it to go. Trying again.

Love your vintage scales. They have AMY written all over it.

And I'm trying to figure out the herb in there. Yes, I'm lame not to know. Is it tarragon?

Great find, Amy! I just love seeing those neat scaled hanging in kitchens! You put that in your shop, and I'm going to make sure I'm first in line to snap it up! lol!
