A Few of my Favorite Things


I have found the older I get the more I appreciate older items. My husband Ray used to find me some goodies in old buildings. Here are just a few of my favorite things. Some are new and some are old but I love them all just the same. 

When Ray brought these scales home it was covered in like a black grease sludge. I didn't even know it had a glass side with the numbers on it. The grime was so thick I thought it was just a black back. The other side was missing it's glass.
Here is another set of scales he found me in an old building. It's a little rusty but I don't mind. It still works and I can read the numbers.
Here is one of my favorite new things. I found this small basket tree in Lancaster. It holds a few of my favorite baskets. I hope to share more of my favorite things.

Hi Donna I love your scales too! I love old things and I just wish I would have appreciated them more when I was younger! I missed out on a lot of little treasures, that were passed on! Wish now I would have taken them when I had the chance...

Donna,

I LOVE both of your scales! That is something that has been on a "wish list" of mine for awhile. One of these days...I don't mind if they're old or reproduction..I just would love some! I think they're treasures!

Got your email, by the way. I'll email back soon!

Hugs,
Tammy
