Welcome to this week’s post designed to help you bring some “balance” into your home. By using these little gems just like a plateau or stand you can add presence to any item. Let’s begin by adding a beautiful brass postal scale with graduated weights used to determine postage.
Just look at Miss. Lillie’s post card from 1909. Why not let it hold your mail too?
A lovely vintage memory of a bygone age. How romantic!
I’ve displayed this portable hanging scale in an old vintage frame.
I wonder what they measured? Gold dust perhaps? It makes for some fabulous wall art.
This little scale, though just decorative, is performing an important function. It holds my bling!
Hmm… diamonds or pearls? A weighty decision.
To continue to maintain balance in the home, why not incorporate balances, as in vintage iron scales.
One sure fire way of sparking harmony is a good cup of tea. I love blends of whole leaf teas after a hard day’s work.
How many of you use scales in your kitchen décor? To hold a basket of eggs perhaps,
This tiny one holds a little Limoges egg carton, now how sweet is that?
How about a little balance in the guest bath. No really, that is a little (as in small) balance on the back of the commode.
Just add some wonderful guest soaps, special bath oil, and fresh cut roses and your guests will not only feel welcomed but pampered as well.
Finally, balance in the boudoir. Display your makeup, jewelry, scented candles, books, or even your glasses!
So how about bringing a little balance into your home décor too? The possibilities are endless!
