Pearls and Lace Thursday #20

Pearls and Lace Thursday
The Old Scales
Sometimes you just know you have to stop.  Sometimes you know you have to dig to the bottom of your purse, look under the seats of the car, and even dig down into the nether regions of the cup holder to find every single dime you can find.
Then you go in the store that says:
"Sale! 30% off all items over $10.00"

There they were: Sitting on a shelf at eye level, looking like they needed a good home.  Mine.  And, they were on sale.  I just couldn't pass up the opportunity.  And I had enough cash to make them mine!

Actually, I think my husband likes them more than me!  They came with the two little pans, and a small box with some of the original weights. 

They were so cute, those little weights.  I'm going to have to see if I can locate some of the ones that are missing.  If you know of any, please let me know!

And I couldn't resist putting some bling with it!  That rope of rhinestones (ooooh...doesn't that sound neat?? Rope of Rhinestones!)  and the pearls...
Ooodles of yum.

The old glasses and case were a find a few weeks ago.  I thought they looked perfect for this vignette!
Can't you just see the little old man work these glasses onto his nose, squint a bit, and then place some gold nuggets on one side of the scale...making the ounce weight balance perfectly as the scale swayed back and forth....add another nugget, wait, add another nugget, wait.....
Then with a final nod he removes the glasses, picks up the pan full of gold nuggets, drops them into a small drawstring bag and says, "That makes one ounce!  You can have ten dollars in store credit or nine dollars cash!"

What treasures do you have to share?  Join me for the 20th Pearls and Lace Thursday and show off your glitz!  Laces, Rhinestones, Pearls or Gold, we want to see what makes you smile!
