It's all about...
balance at this "Libran" time of the year and so lets take a look at scales!
Scales can be -
vintage reminders of days in the kitchen -

or of days when work was a little more gentle in pace -

They make great retro pieces -
|Top row: Family Feedbag and Style Hive; Bottom row: Whorange, Flyingace and This Next|
and also look rather fetching when given a modern twist -
|Top row: Style Hive and This Next; Along the bottom: Retro To Go and Chambermade|
Scales make for a lovely display at home -

or at a special occasion-

When you think about it they really are a versatile little piece. Perhaps the only time that I don't really like scales around is when -

they remind me that I have been enjoying my food too much!
So there you have it, some whimsy with weights for you on a Wednesday!Stephie x
