Autumn Gathering Basket and Another Vintage Scale

Today was my lucky day!  I found another vintage scale to add to my collection. 

005

It is heavy for a small scale!  For now, I placed it inside my gathering basket that is sitting on the kitchen table and dressed it up for Autumn.   

018

On one side of the scale, I placed a bird’s nest and put a pumpkin inside of the nest.   All of the bird nests that I have, are ones that have fallen from trees in our yard.  On the other side, I added a burlap wrapped candle.  I just realized something….I forgot to add the Autumn tag that I made for the candle….ooops.

I draped a Harvest tea-towel that I made over the side of the basket.  I also added another little basket inside and filled it with linen napkins and pumpkins.

I love the size of my gathering basket….it can hold a lot of stuff!

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I can't believe you found another vintage scale!! I've only seen a few in our area and they were missing so many parts that they didn't even look like scales anymore!
