Last year, I was in an antique store in a neighboring town and ran across an antique baby scale with a wicker basket on top. I wanted it for future photography use, but couldn't see spending $55 on it when I had no baby to photograph in it or prospect. Well, a few weeks went by and I finally convinced myself I needed it regardless of the price. So, I went back to the store and ............. you guessed it, it was gone. Poo!
I have had my eye out for one since, but haven't had any luck. I found a few old kitchen scales and a most recent find of a postal scale, but none of those were what I wanted.
Today, the boys and I had to get out of the house for it to show again, so we went into a little shop downtown where I haven't hunted in a while. I was actually on the lookout for a centerpiece for the table. But, I found this instead.
It's now mine regardless of the fact that I have no baby nor any baby prospects to photograph anytime soon. But still, I have it, the search is over! *clap* (Oh, and it was half the price of the other one. ;) )
