This is a not so great photo of something new (well, old but new to me since February) that I have in my house. My grandparents gave me this scale earlier this year. It was something they had in their house that I wanted, and I love that it’s old, that it has such character, and that it perfectly matches the wood from the table sofa table he made for us that it sits on. Sometimes when I’m feeling intellectual I imagine that the scales represent our home values of balance and justice.
But really it’s just nice to have something old and meaningful in our home.
