Weighing My Options

Hey my friends, I'm happy you're stopping in today, for a little visit with me. Welcome to all my new followers, I'm so glad that you want to follow along with me here, at Coastal Charm. I have a question for all of you today. Have you ever drooled over an item, and even had dreams about it.  Sure you have, right? The bad thing is, I really don't have a place in my little coastal nest to put it, bummer!!! For about a year now, I have been admiring these charming vintage scales. So, if one day, I come across one with a NIFTY THRIFTY price tag on her, she's mine! Just what will I remove, to make room for her? Only time will tell. Here are two I found while pinning. Now, isn't Pinterest a ton of FUN?
                         Blessings,

Have a fun weekend,

Oh yes. If I ever came across one with the right price I'd grab that baby and never let go! I'd make sure I had room for it somewhere :)

I have no room for anything but that won't stop me I will just have to move something out maybe the husband .... haha

You've got the cutest thing that I love! I'm dying to have that scale!

Mamaw Bee said...

Those are gorgeous. I would love to find a set of scales somewhere, but I am like you...no idea where I would put them. I especially love the first pic.

Love them! I think you should go ahead and get rid of something! You need those :)

Anne said...

so beautiful! You absolutely MUST have it!

Olive Cooper said...

I looked at your scales on Pinterest and they are gorgeous. These do take up room. I have started selling one or two of my vintage kitchen scales because I have way too much stuff.

Of course you make the purchase ;)! Just keep layering!

I passed up several things that I found and loved, just because it would not fit where it should go! I like going junking, but don't want my house to get junky with too much stuff. It surely is a pretty scale...

They are gorgeous. I would have never thought to put one on my dresser, but it looks fabulous there!

I love old scales and these are fabulous ones!

Pam@OurAdventuresInHomeImprovement said...

I have no room for anymore; yet just bought a new one yesterday! They are addicting! Good luck finding the perfect one!

Oh that style is beautiful - you could rationalize that size because it becomes a storage/display piece, right? I have a small one I scored for 5.00 and it moves all around the house depending on the season or what I'm changing up in my decorating!

If you find a deal you must not pass it up. Try it out in different places and you can always sell it if it just doesn't find the perfect place to rest in your nest.
I would love one too, but I never see them around here.
Have a great week.

Can't wait to see if you go for it!:) Did u get my email about the one here?

I'm also a lover of scales (except for the kind I have to step on!!!).

I picked up a great small-sized flower frog at your Cotton City location this weekend. Very cute, and just what I needed! I'll be back for more goodies!

Jen said...

I sigh {ok, and maybe drool a little} everytime I see one of these old scales. If I would ever find one, I would definitely make room somewhere in my home...they are such interesting pieces!

andrea@townandprairie said...

I know! Aren't those big scales neat?! I saw a hosptial one once at an antique store... it had a baby deer on it. It was beautiful, but I thought, where on earth would I PUT it? The next week it was gone. :( But that's ok, I have to save room for my typrewriters :D xo, andrea b.

Cynthia said...

I would love one of these old beauties too!
I hesitated at our first white event and am still kicking myself!

Thank you so much and for stopping by to comment on my post with the scale. Good luck finding one. Those you found on pinterest are exceptional! I bet you'll stumble upon one when you least expect it. I hope so!
