New treasures!

I have seen beautiful scales in blog world!  I have seen them used in almost every room of your homes in different ways.  I was on a mission to find one for myself!  Best friend Clara and I went to The Depot in Concord, NC today.  It is five large rooms of an old cotton mill laid out like an antique mall.  We spent nearly five hours treasure hunting.  I love the scale I finally decided on ( I had to choose between several). Oh,and it was the best price, $22!  At the last minute I spotted the old crockery bowl with the bright green stripe.  I knew I could use it on the scale in my green kitchen.  I just sat it on the little shelf for now.  I will probably move everything around in the kitchen tomorrow!  My long time red and black rooster got a new look with white spray paint last week.  Like so many of you, I am leaning toward the whites!
