By the Light of the Silvery Moon
Oh, I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to find this lovely antique scale at my favorite little antique shop. I have searched FOREVER to find just the right one to use as a background for my version of a favorite design of Terrye French. The scale has a metal plate on either side that reads, "Wimberly & Thomas Hardware, Birmingham, Alabama." Isn't it ironic that after all these years, this piece was found only 45 miles from where it was originally used? I love to think of what it weighed over the years... nails, screws, or seeds perhaps? I wonder about the stories it could tell. I don't think it minds one bit that it has found a new life as a candle stand or maybe a base for a mason jar full of rosehips.
