A Vintage Scale!

I am so excited to share my new antique (Is that an oxymoron?) scale that Jon got me for Christmas!  I apologize in advance for the pictures.  They are not great.  But back to the scale....Didn't he do a super job?  I have been wanting a scale for quite a while.  I have been drooling over some of the wonderful ones I have seen on some of my favorite blogs.  A couple of months ago Jon and I were browsing in a wonderful antique store in Mobile when I spotted a terrific vintage scale. Jon encouraged me to buy it, but I didn't - I don't know why.  I totally regretted not buying it on the spot!  When Jon asked what I wanted for Christmas, I immediately thought of the scale (and an antique dog that I had spotted at another antique store - but that is another story!)

Bless my sweet husband's heart, he went back to buy the scale and it was gone!  As luck would have it though - they  had gotten another scale and he got it for me!  I think it is perfect!  
I love all of the imperfections.  Isn't it fun to think 
of the families who used this before me? 

I think the vintage pyrex bowl looks great on the scale :-)

Another close-up.  It blends so well with the granite.  I am so happy with my new vintage treasure!

Next up, I will share with you my wonderful antique dog.  It is precious! Thanks for visiting Buttercup Bliss! 

This week I am linking to the following:

Come join the fun!! 


  1. Lisa, what a great scale! I was in Hobby Lobby today and they had all of their 'vintage' scales stacked out. Of course, they didn't have the patina of these true vintage scales. I love yours! What a great gift!

  2. I love your vintage scale, and believe no kitchen should be without one!

  3. That is a really great scale. I love the graphics that say "American Family Scale." Very neat.

  4. This is a great find! I love the chippiness and the dial is in great shape. I have a very similar story to yours on my blog...maybe you can check it out!I am also having a giveaway you might like. Just found you via Wow us Wednesdays. Now following you.


    All the best,
