What is Take 5 you ask…well it is a collection of 5 things that I think you will all enjoy! It can be themed…random…food…crafts…home decor and everything in between. Hopefully you will love them enough to take 5 minutes out of your busy day… relax and enjoy! Today’s it is all about an easy way to add a touch of that vintage Farmhouse look…add a vintage scale!
No matter if you have a Cottage, Farmhouse, Vintage, Cottage French look or all the others in between there is one element that will add a touch of glory to the space…a vintage scale!
For some reason they just look amazing wherever you put them and when you set them up in a vignette…vintage magic happens!
Today we have 5 different examples of how fabulous a vintage scale can look and how it just lightens up the space it inhabits.
Five Pretty Vignettes that I would be thrilled to sneak on my counter top…hutch…shelf…island…bakers rack and the list goes on!
Take a peek and hopefully you will be inspired!
The Vegetable Weigh In!
How gorgeous does this scale look with some simple seasonal asparagus wrapped in brown paper and twine…instead of buying flowers for your scale…try some fresh veggie!
Over at Town and Country Living
this scale is displayed with beautiful farm house eggs and other vintage beauties. This looks simply amazing!
What a wonderful arrangement this is…a beautiful vintage scale with some added old pots sitting next to a chicken wire basket filled with box wood topiary’s all displayed in front a a set of shutters…I can almost hear the rooster crowing!
How scrumptious does this look but it is so easy to do…a few pretty glass bottles…a pitcher…some fresh flowers and a vintage scale…put them all together and it creates a perfect vignette!
Love this style…a touch of vintage Scandinavia
…a pitcher filled with silverware…some pretty little tart pans… a chippy shelf and a pair of crystal Rosary Beads…what a magical mood …it just amazes me how all of these elements just come together to form a unique piece of artwork.

Love that first scale! Thanks so much for showing my little scale with the eggs. 🙂
I love them all. That first one-the Kitchen Queen. I am almost positive that was “bought” with S&H green stamps. You used to get them with groceries and trade them in as cash. My Mom “purchased” one just like it with her stamps- xo Diana
I love scales, love them I tell ‘ya! These are all great, but that little Scandinavian number – I’ll be thinking of that one for a long time.
