How did I miss this?


I realized this morning while going through a few old photos that I never posted the few vintage items that I bought at Farm Chicks!  All three are things that I love, which is my new motto in the house:


These items fit well in our 1928 farm house~


~I collect vintage milk jugs


~I have always wanted an old scale


~I was thrilled when I found this vintage egg basket which collapses completely flat!

I love those scales also. I found some great silver items at Vinnies recently but yet to find lovely scales like these. Julie

Love the blackboard alot! and you, little boogar, that tag looks familiar, and that jug is adorable, better not invite me over I might steal it! :)

Wonderful post! I keep an ironstone milk jug just like yours on my desk filled with paintbrushes and pencils. I am an ironstone fanatic! Like you, I am currently paring down and simplifying my life. I don't want extras or things I can't use and love every day. Like William Morris said, "have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." I am trying to live by these words.

PS I just remembered that my jug actually made an appearance in two posts I did this week! Wow, it's funny how these things are so much a part of our lives that we sometimes forget how much we love (and use) them.

Everyone needs a vintage scale - it's the perfect pedestal for a almost any little thing! And the world could never have enough milk jugs. Love all of your finds!

Hi sweet pea - love your fabulous finds from farm chicks - I'm still posting about that trip! I have one of those baskets too, but thought it was for catching shrimp! I have it on my porch/ studio and it's filled with mussel shells. I want a scale too - that's wonderful.

Glad to have found you.

Very, very cool items. Great finds!

Leen said...

Nice finds! I just parted with my old scale just like that one. Mr Man hated it. He kept putting it in the back room when I wasn't around.
Geeze, now I miss my scale!

Simply Mel said...

Beautiful simple treasures! My great-grandfather gave me his scale that looks exactly like this one, and I use it everyday! It still measures precisely - I love it!
