My husband surprised me with another antique!!

He brought home an antique from a farm auction today.  He knows I really want an old platform scale, with a wood platform.  His parents have a beautiful one that I drool over whenever I am there.  When he called me and told me he bought one, I was a little scared.  Around here, these things go for a pretty penny and I knew that was not in the budget at this time.  But this one was in the budget because he got it for $15.  It needs a little cleaning, painting, some fabricating, and some TLC.  I love it already though.  It's dated 1905.  He's getting pretty good at this.

I also have forgotten to mention something.  Heather and I have entered our selling blog in a contest here on the web.  It is being put on by the Sunburnt Cow Handmade Shop.  The rest of the contestants are very talented.  Wish us luck!!!!
