A fortunate tip of the luck scale landed this baby in my kitchen. At an event called Goldrush Days I haggled my way to this victorious prize. Imagine a whole fairground filled with antiques....yes the buildings are filled....yes every square inch of the dirt outside is filled.....yes it IS heaven.
How I was successful was using the camera on my phone and the notes. This was the first thing I took a picture of but had a limited budget. I would take a picture of the item and then mark the location in my notes. This helped me navigate back to this jem. I haggled the dealer down to $20 and skipped away giddy with joy! One of my favorite parts is the patina on the bottom. I love how the color changes from blueish to green and the little bits of rust.
It fits perfectly in my kitchen and adds a pop of color that is not so BAM but still adds interest. Oh yes, this is my kitchen. Looks a little different right? Yes we finally finished the subway tile - I promise the whole shebam will be the next post.
Another thing that makes me so excited about the scale is that it is perfect for holding a small glass bowl filled with fruit or vegetables. It is so pretty looking that it makes me want to eat a ton more fruits and veggies so I can fill it up with different colors and kinds!
