So what did Jim and I get when we were antiquing last Saturday?
Well, it was nothing exciting but something we had been looking for for months.
|Behold! Our new egg scale.|
This was Jim’s idea and every time we saw one it was either out of our price range or in really rough shape. This one was $20 and the graphics were great. The whole thing was coated with a layer of what we think was cooking grease, which is what may have preserved it so well. Jim took on the scary task of cleaning it and it survived very well. For the record, even the smallest of our chickens’ eggs that I had on hand totally topped off the scale!
Not pictured – I also bought some buttons and a small butter mold. Jim was the big money spender this day though. He bought windows. He’s become rather obsessed with looking at windows for a future project(s). I will show you the windows when they are in the completed project. And it might be a while. Jim usually only has time to spend in his woodshop during the winter, even then he sometimes isn’t able to work on his own projects.
