I've have two treasures I've bought this year that I just love.
Both have little stories to go with them.
So sit back and I'll share.....
Once upon a time (when I lived in Illinois) I bought an antique scale.
The price was very good, $12.00 I think.
It was beautiful and I loved it.
Then one day the top broke off.
This was before I knew blogging existed.
I had never heard of epoxy.
I threw it away ~gasp!~
I THREW IT AWAY! ~sob~
I feel like such a dummy!!
I recently decided I need to put the past, in the past, and move on to the future.
So I've bought an antique scale off Ebay.
She's rusty and curvy and I just LOVE her!
I'm a happy girl!
All's well that ends well!
I found this beautiful candlestick at an antique mall.
For some strange reason I didn't buy her.
I was getting other things that day and I guess I just felt I had to draw the line somewhere.
Of course I couldn't stop thinking of her.
I was kicking myself for not bringing her home.
When I went back to the store she was gone.
Except it turns out she wasn't gone.
Many months later I returned to the store.
She had been placed in a different spot, way up on a high shelf.
And now she is mine.
We are living happily ever after. ;)
