S Stands for....

Scales and stools, can one person ever have enough?  I've pretty much decided I've got an addictive personality disorder!  Once I "fall" for something, I can't seem to stop!   Luckily for me, I have good friends who every once in while will put their heads together and pull and "intervention".   As far as kitchen stools go, I was able to stop at 2.  Every once in a while, I do go thru intense cravings, but, so far have managed to resist temptation even though I know it will be a lifelong battle!  A while back, I showed you my green
 one, now, here is my paint spattered red one, along with one of my favorite red and white scales.    (Unfortunately, where scales are concerned, I was not able to stop at 2)!! 

I confess, I am a rust lover!
This scale was only $5.00 at a yard sale

This stool was left over at an auction. I was driving by and
saw it sitting in the yard as they were cleaning up, stopped and asked 
if it was for sale and price,  $1.00, yeah, that's right, only $1.00!
They didn't want to haul it off!  My lucky day!

You can barely see them, but there are blotches
of my favorite green color paint 
splattered  on the back.

P.S. couldn't resist adding this pic of Kailyn,
1 week old, and, yes, I am obsessed!

Till next time......
