Vintage Postal Scale

On the weekend, daughter and I visited an antique store at the Forks downtown. I fell in love with this vintage postal scale (I am unsure but probably early 1920's era) and thought it would make a great piece in the craft room. It's a great way to store my finished cards waiting to be used or "posted"! Now that I have a vintage printer's drawer, some vintage ink bottles (circa 1900) and this, I can definitely see my room becoming a mix of old and new.

And when we got home, I had time to do a quick card. I had stamped two images and already coloured them in with my Copics, so this was easy to finish up with some patterned paper, edge punch and pearl bling.
