Pretty Scale - ly




Hello, Dear Ones.
You may remember seeing this vignette I shared at Marty's Cloche Party a few weeks back.

 
 Hidden in among the greens and veggies was a scale!
My new scale!!
Woo Hooness!
Now let me tell you about it.

 I have to admit, I wanted one so badly.
I saw many of you had these scales and were having so much fun with them.

 So I coveted, I yenned, I yearned, I dreamed, I wanted one.
 I felt so sorry for myself and cried, wept, sobbed and pouted.
I was a slobbering mess I tell you!
I did run across a few but alas, they were so rusty they couldn't come home with me.
Then when we were in Pennsylvania, my most gorgeous peepers spied this scale!
Almost perfect in condition and only $20!

 She is going to love it at my house and I've played with her just a bit to show her off.
Now how did these get here?
This is for another post for another day! :)

Just know I'm totally in hog, um, scale heaven right now!
I've put her back in the Fallen vignette until after Thanksgiving ~ then we'll play some more!
I just love this stuff!

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

In Heaven's Eyes

A fervent prayer rose up to heaven, a fragile soul is losing ground
Sorting through this earthly babble, heaven heard the sound
This was a life with no distinction, no successes, only tries
Yet gazing down on this unlovely one, there was love in heaven?s eyes

In heaven's eyes, there are no losers, in heaven's eyes no hopeless cause

Only people like you with feelings like me amazed by the grace we can find
In heaven's eyes

A restless child, a wayward father, a lonely traveler in the rain

When life goes on and no one bothers heaven feels the pain
Looking down, (Girls: looking down)
He sees each heart ache, (Girls: He sees the heartache) 

He knows each sorrow, (Girls: knows each sorrow)
hears each cry (Girls: each cry)
And looking up, we see compassion's fire ablaze in heaven's eyes

In heaven's eyes, there are no losers, in heaven's eyes there is no hopeless cause

Only people like you with feelings like me amazed by the grace we can find

In heaven's eyes, there are no losers, in heaven's eyes no hopeless cause

Only people like you with feelings like me
And we're amazed by the grace we can find
In heaven's eyes!

  5. Shelia, she is a beauty and your styling is spot on. I have had a rusty one for sale and no one has bought it which means I get to bring it home. Imagine Christmas ornaments on yours. xo, olive

  13. I love your new scale, She. Love it! We had a blue (kind of turquoise) one when I was a wee She, and it's gone. Where? I don't know. But I can understand your woohooing over that cutie. It's great that it was rust free, and the price can't be beat!

    I voted, did you??? I bet I know the answer to that!

    XO,

    Sheila

    XO,

  30. Shelia,
    What an adorable scale! Seeing it in your vignette, I assumed you'd always had her. Love that she came home from a vacation with you...memories to recall! I adore each and every creative idea you've shown us...but I'm sure inspiration abounds @ Note Songs! I'll be keeping a close eye out for her in your future posts!
    Fondly,
    Pat

    I can't believe you wanted it so badly that you actually got it in such great shape too! You should have bought a lottery ticket that day. Your vignettes are lovely...enjoy your scale delight.
