Vignette

Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm so pleased to have introduced some of you to wall pockets from my last post. Now when you're out and about and see one ~ think of me! :)

Okay, today I'd love to show you a little something I found on our trip to Florida ...
 an olden scale! Isn't she pretty? Now I really don't believe she's very olden but she is just the cutest thing and when I saw her it was love at first sight! You know how it goes.
 Look at her cute face with all of the foods around the dial. I have thought about painting her yellow or red, but we'll see.
 She is practically just perfect. No rust or scratches. Do I care that she is not olden? Well, no no Nannette, I do not care. I really don't like those that are so so rusty.
 Okie dokie...it was Mr. Precious and my anniversary last week ~ 41 years, and he bought me some beautiful roses. They were wilting their gorgeous little heads so fast and I went to check on the water level. Guess what? Mr. Precious had grabbed a vase and poked the long stemmed roses into it and didn't add any water!! That boy! So I got my scissors and started chopping off the steams and poked them into that gorgeous little Jadeite pitcher you're seeing here and added water! Don't you just love my little pitcher?
 So I began to set up this little vignette for my kitchen counters and grabbed this cute little pitcher for melted butter to pour over your pancakes. Yum, wish I had a couple of those little buttermilked rounds right now! :)
So there you have my little vignette in the kitchen for now. New Scale, fading roses, Jadeite pitcher, butter pitcher and a few ruby red strawberries tossed in for some yumminess.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Love (Can Make You Happy)

Wake up in the morning with the sunshine in your eyes
And the smell of flowers blooming fills the air.
Your mind is filled with the thoughts of a certain someone - that you
love;
Your life is filled with joy when she is there.

Love can make you happy if you fine someone who cares
To give a life time to you and who has a love to share.

If you think you've found someone you'll love forevermore,
Then it's worth the price you'll have to pay (pay).
To have, to hold's important when forever is the phrase
That means the love you've found is going to stay.

Love can make you happy if you find someone who cares
To give a life time to you and who has a love to share.

La-love, la-love
Love can make you happy.
Love can make you happy.
Love can make you happy.
Love..

  1. Lovely arrangement Sheila! It sounds as though your hubby needs a flower arranging class! You made a great rescue of them though. Congratulations on your anniversary and best wishes for many more happy years together for both of you! xx

  2. Hi Sheila1 I was at Goodwill this morning, just looking around and I did see a wall pocket and I did think of you! It was the first one I've ever noticed at the thrift store so it was a funny coincidence. It was an old-fashioned pitcher and bowl (like you'd keep on a washstand) and it was plain white, not nearly as interesting as yours.

  13. Love both those pitchers, Shelia! That scale brings back memories. Thirty years ago when I first met my hubby he was in business with his Dad. They used a scale just like that to weigh packages. It is long gone now, but I'll never forget what it looked like!

  17. Happy anniversary, we're 41 years married too. It doesn't seem that long looking back, does it? Your roses look lovely in the little jug - a nice romantic gesture, even without the water in the vase.

    blessings,

  21. We had a similar scale in our kitchen when I was a kid in the 60's. I think Mother got it with S&H Green stamps. Do you remember those? I love yours and how cute it looks with the roses and little butter pitcher next to it. Lovely, Shelia!
    Happy Anniversary to you- I wonder how many of today's marriages will last that long? xo Diana

  23. Happy Anniversary sweet lady! I love your vignette and you are so right the scale is soooooo fabulous, as are the strawberries. Love the jadeite pitcher and the roses look rather well.
    Have a blessed day, Ginger

  24. Love your new things - beautiful grouping, sweetie! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I just love long lasting marriages, such a rare thing these days. Whoo hoo.

    BTW- don't forget: when you go to bed at night put any cut florals you may have been lucky enough to receive (or buy for yourself) in the refrigerator while you sleep. Get them out when you wake. They - along with cutting stems and changing water every single day will keep your cuttings much longer. ♥

    Hugs.

  31. Hi Shelia, I love your scale. My mother had the same scale when I was growing up. What a darling vignette and that little butter pitcher is too sweet. Gorgeous Roses and had to giggle about the water!!! Happy Anniversary and many more wonderful years together. We will hit our 41st in August!!
    Have a great Wednesday.
    Hugs!!

  33. Oh I almost forgot, one year I gave my Mom a silk orchid for Mother's day, it lookes so real, she watered it. Then realized, when all the water leaked out that it was silk. hahhaha

  34. What cool finds you got there! Love the scales too! Wish I could run up on some like that! One thing is for sure...when browsing around you never know what you will find! Have a great day. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  35. Love the scale! I wonder why it is metric if it is American? Maybe it was made for the Euro market. The foods look American. Do you know anything about it, like who made it? At any rate, great find.

  36. Oooh, roses and strawberries make me think of romance, but you pulled off a homey feel with it Sheila! Love it!

  40. Happy Anniversary to my sweet sister and her treasured hubby.

    Guess what! I had a kitchen scale exactly like that, and I sold it while I still lived in Florida. Maybe you have the one that once belonged to me. lol I got mine in 1973, so it is pretty old. That must have been the year you were married.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Happy Anniversary Shelia! I'm one year ahead of you. Funny story about the roses and no water!!!

    Love your vignette and new scales. I like the jadeite measuring cup and that you used it as a pitcher.

    I have to read your last post to see what a wall pocket is. Somehow I missed it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. That scale is fabulous! I wish I'd seen it first! And Happy Anniversary -- 41 years is a lot of love!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Don't you dare paint the scale. They don't make em like that anymore. Love the measuring cup too. I've never seen on like that. Adorrrraaable!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the scale. If you leave it white you can use it with different thing . I can't believe I am saying this ,but I have never thought to put melted butter on the table when I make pancakes. I have been living under a rock. LOL

  45. Great find! I love that sweet butter pitcher, sooo cute!
    Happy anniversary!

  46. Happy belated Anniversary wishes! That was nice of him to give you the roses- good thing you noticed they had no water. Well I guess they were on their way to being preserved roses! The jadeite piece is really uniqe and the scale is cute! I like how it was made to look old fashioned. Cute vignette -I'd go yellow if I painted the scale :-)

  47. Love can make you HAPPY!!! That's 4 shore. Blessings to you and may you have a sweet Spring.

  49. Shelia,
    Happy Anniversary, dear friend!!!
    I love, LOVE, L O V E the contrast of the red roses in the Jadeite pitcher!
    Your new scale is adorable, too!
    Hm~m~m. . .I'm thinking Sour Cream Pancakes for breakfast, now that I've seen your little butter pitcher! YuMMy!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  50. Happy Anniversary! Love, love your scale and vignette. Beautiful! Enjoy your weekend. Maria

  51. You mentioned to me in a comment that you had the same scale as I do -- how fun is that! Mine is missing the clear face cover, but that doesn't matter to me one iota. I had never thought about painting the body, but I kind of like it being white. That jadeite pitcher is so sweet and is perfect for those roses. Happy belated Anniversary (I'm pretty sure I commented on FB). We will be celebrating 45 in June!

I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
