These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

"Rain drops and Roses and Whiskers on Kittens" might make Julie Andrews feel better when she's down, but for me? It's scales and cloches, along with some other great vintage finds! So "when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I simply rememeber my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad!" Who really needs Prozac? All I need is some really great junk!

I have always had a love for scales, but this one is particularly beautiful. It was the inspiration piece for my happy place.

Ooooh, what is it about a worn piece of ironstone? This one is particularly special holding some of my favorite flowers from my garden, Annabelle Hydrangias.

In the basket of the scale holds a few of my scale weights. Though they are a little rusty, they make me happy!

I love the wear on these pieces. Two are from an old pillar and one, a piece from a wooden pulley. Again, LOVE!

Now who wouldn't feel better looking at a vintage clock under a cloche?

And this piece? Not actually a cloche, but the globe from an old hanging light fixture. Perfection!

Now doesn't that make you happy?

And who doesn't love rust? This piece, though not perfect, is beautiful. 

The piece that holds this "happy" vignette was actually a tithes box from a church. Notice the slot to put your tithes in? 

Now doesn't it all together just make you go, "Aaaah"?

I have a question are the clocks under glass to protect them or to make them more artistic.
