Personal Shopper

 A few weeks ago, Mr.CC and I packed up the car and headed North. Our plans were to do some pickin' for my shop space and make a stop at the hunting camp, on our way home. We have decided to try and see areas of our state, that we have both not visited before.
This trip, our destination was Cullman, Alabama. We didn't know much about this town before our trip, but after our visit, we were happy that we spent a few days in this charming area of our beautiful state. Their downtown area, was very quaint and we enjoyed shopping at all the local shops. The second shop we went in, we hit the jackpot!! I turned from a shop owner out pickin', into a personal shopper for Mr.CC. When I stepped inside one of the booths and spotted that awesome scale, the one on the left (in the above photo), I knew right then, she was coming home with me! Right away, Mr.CC said, honey I will get it for your upcoming birthday, okay that sounds good. Just as he got that out of his mouth, I spotted scale #2, sitting there in the same booth, oh my goodness, I must be doing something right!!! Next comment was, I will buy you that one too. I was smiling from ear to ear with excitement, then I spotted scale #3, just around the corner from the other ones. How could this be, three white scales, that are so my style, appeared in the same place. So, you see, this is how I became his personal shopper. He was just as happy as I was, because he had all his shopping done and out of the way. I didn't even wait until my birthday, to display them, they were glowing bright, even before the candles were lit.

                                                 Scale #1 is my favorite. I am
                                                 pretty sure it's a candy scale.

                                                 I think I still have some pretty
                                             glass candy around here somewhere,
                                             so when I find it, I will add it here.

                                                     Scale #3 was a perfect size
                                                   and for sure, the perfect color!


                                  Scale #2 was the perfect fit for #1. Displaying
                                  these two together was a must in my book.

                                           I am so looking forward to having these
                                        pretties in my home for many years to come.

                                         Yes...I am very THANKFUL and BLESSED
                                                      to have such a lovin' husband!!
                                                               Thank you sweetie!!

You were certainly lucky to find 3 sets of scales in one booth. I love the first one perfect for a candy bar. Have a great week.

Those are all lovely and unique scales and do go so well together. Lovely gifts! It's great that you got to get out and about with your hubby.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Wow! What were the chances of finding three beautiful scales all in one place? I'm so happy you were able to take them all home with you, and I love the way you have them displayed too. I'm thinking Mr. CC needs to shop with you more often. Thanks Linda for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

Your scales are fabulous!! I have never seen that style before. That happens to my husband and I a lot....I see something I want while we are out thrifting and he buys it for me for whatever upcoming occasion is next. The only difference is that I have to wait till the occasion to get it!!
