Vintage Kitchen Scale

I have been wanting to get a vintage scale for my kitchen for quite a while now. I'm always on the lookout for one when I'm shopping at antique stores. Recently, when I was out with my husband at an antique mall, I found this cute blue scale! Since it was almost Mother's Day my husband bought it for me!
The little decals on the side are so cute, too! 
Also, I made another little lamp! 
I found this Mary Engelbreit watering can at Michael's a few weeks ago and thought it would make a cute lamp for my kitchen.

Here's a link to the post about the watering can lamp I made!

I really like how sweet they both look in my kitchen!

The scale is perfect with your sweet lamp that you made! I am so impressed. I love the color of blue on the scale and the artwork on the side too.
Your kitchen looks great!

Janet-They are perfect in your kitchen. My Mom had a pale yellow scale with a decal like that on the side...I think it was from the 50's...maybe even the 40's...and I LOVE your little lamp that you made. I have always loved her ME's patterns and designs...they are just darling! Hugs-Diana

I've seen Mary's stuff at the craft stores recently and it's very cute. However, I love that you took it to the next level by making a lamp. Very adorable! Thanks so much for visiting my blog this week!

Your little scale is adorable. I really like the blue color. I have a green one, and although I bought it for decoration, I do use it more often than I thought I would :-)
Have a wonderful weekend Janet.

Your kitchen looks so cheerful and happy it must be a joy to hangout in.

I have a scale very similar to yours only mine in creamy white. I love, love LOVE IT and the reminder of a simpler time in life. With all our newfangled gadgets nothing out there today compares to the old stuff.

Sweet bloggie you have...and YOU ARE GORGEOUS! Oh my goodness...YOU ARE! You remind me of Miss NanaDiana! :)
