Antique Scales

Not much from my end, I caught an end of summer cold and feel really yucky, so nothing very creative.

When I cleaned out the refrigerator and gave it a good scrub inside and out, I thought I would do a little rearranging on the top.  I love these little antique scales, so I decided to use them for a change.

Of course a rooster probably has to be in the vignette.  Love my roos.

The top of my mom's recipe box is so pretty with the painted bowl and basket of eggs, so I put the antique egg scale on top of that.  It also holds an antique wooden egg.

Next to that I placed the candy scale.  I filled the wonderful brass tray with some faux fruit.

The antique shredder hangs on the wall next to the fridge and it ties in well with the vignette.

Fun for a change and everything ties in well with the things I have up on top of the cabinets.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits. 


  1. HI Marty! I'm so sorry to hear you don't feel well. Those old colds just make you miserable!
    Now I love your arrangement on top of your fridge! A gal after my own heart with those Roos! :) I'm on the lookout for an olden scale. I love these but so far no luck.
    Marty, your walls are so pretty and my eyes go to them each time we come into your kitchen. They look like a Hershey's bar! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Great candy scale Marty. I've been looking for a vintage scale...wish me luck:)


  3. I enjoy decorating with my scales as much as anything in my kitchen. Yours looks great!

  4. Oh, dear Marty,I'm so sorry to hear you're not well sweet lady! I hate colds, they make you feel so down!! I love scales and I don't have any, except for the modern ones, not romantic like the vintage look. I love your arrangement on top of the fridge! Hope you get well soon! Hugs, FABBY

  5. Very nice Marty....oh those horrible summer colds!!

  7. Even when you feel yucky you seem to get a lot done! Cleaning the refrigerator? Really?
    I think your mom's recipe box is beautiful, and the egg-on-scale complements it so well.
    Feel better soon.

  8. Great scales Marty. I am always on the look out for some myself. Sorry to hear you have that lousy summer cold. I think I am fighting one too. Feel better.

  12. I'm sorry you are a little 'under the weather' Marty. Your fridge top vignette is great, but it's that tea tin on the top shelf that caught my eye. I don't know why I never noticed it before. I DO like your vignette, though.
    Hugs and get well soon,

  13. HI my friend - so sorry you are feeling a little under the weather. :( You always come up with the besets little vignettes. I love my vintage scales too. I switch them around as often as I can. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

  14. I adore antique scales! I have two and they're already packed away. Can't wait until I see them again.

  15. I just love antique kitchen wear and you have some really unique items. You arranged them so nicely.

  16. Love your vignettes Marty! The sets of scales are so cute!
