Fabulous finds~Hello, dear ones! I'm so exited about my newest find! I still had some Christmas money my sweet husband gave me so I took a little trip to the antique mall. I've been wanting a vintage scale for a long time and I have finally found the perfect one...and in my favorite color too!I love the way the bottom is scalloped and how pretty the numbers are. And it's just the right amount of shabby!
I also found these gorgeous vintage buttons! These kind are so hard to find!
Speaking of hard to find , I also found some vintage wallpaper (really cheap!)This first piece is my favorite!
They were all small scraps,but perfect for art projects!
Aren't they lovely?
I can't wait to use them!Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
Michelle xoxo

Hello Michelle, Oh what beautiful things you have found. I love the scale and the wall paper is just beautiful. I sometimes scan the wallpaper so that I can keep the original. The buttons are beautiful too. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year to you and your family. Hugs, Terri

Oh wow Michelle.. You always find the best things at the antique malls. That scale is wonderful. Just the perfect piece to use for display. And that wallpaper is stunning. I never seem to find any when I'm out antiquing or if I do, its super expensive so I have to leave it behind.

Hope you are having a great weekend!! Stop by my blog when you get a chance and check out my recent posts where I am featuring some altered spools that I've made if you haven't stopped by an seen them already. My crafting bug is in full force this month. So many ideas swimming in my head and I wonder what project to try next.

Very pretty treasures Michelle, the scale is certainly a nice find and what a cool color. I like the buttons too, a little bling goes along ways. Pretty wall paper like that I can use in various places in my home. It's fun finding some great stuff like that!
