Sometimes it just takes a wheelbarrow to bring the goods home~~~~~~~~

Hmmm, where to start? O.k., I'll just jump right in. Last week my dd and I drove an hour over to the coast to spend some time with my Sis and her know shopping, eating, shopping....etc.
We were spending the night so we could take our time. I found so many treasures that I can't wait to go back! Not to mention just spending some great fun quality time with my sister. You see, we've been apart for the last 30 or so years, only seeing each other a handful of sad. Now that she lives closer we're taking advantage of it! So we were in a shop at the coast and I saw this HUMONGOUS scale. The price floored me, but not for the reason you may be! It was priced at $15! Yeah, I know. Now here comes the dumbest part of this story....I didn't buy it! Yes, I'll repeat that for those of you who may have thought that you weren't reading that correctly....I didn't buy it!
Must be all that salty air that got into my foggy brain.

Anyway, we got home and I just happened to mention the behemoth scale to my dh and he said, "And you didn't buy it?" I was astounded when he said he thought I should have. Let me just tell you, no matter how many years you've been married they can still surprise you. So I called up my sis right away and asked her if she would go down there the next day and buy it for me. She, of course said no problem.
This is one side of the scale, unfortunately I can't display it this way because of the configuration of our countertop and the nearby window....nowhere else to put the darn behemoth!!!!
But no worries, it still looks cool when displayed on the other side.
I think it's beyond awesome, especially when I see how much many people are charging for these huge grocery type scales....wowza! And just in case you're wondering where the wheelbarrow plays into this story, we actually did have to use my wheelbarrow to haul this into my house because she weighs about 45 pounds! I'm sure my neighbors are still talking....:).

These are my antique tranferware platters that I'm going to hang right above my massive scale.....I kinda like that "farmhouse" vibe that they'll add to my kitchen, even though we most definitely do NOT live on a farm or anything that remotely resembles one.
It's all good, every time I gaze upon my super bargain of a scale I find myself humming the tune to "Green Acres".
