I LOVE LOVE LOVE shopping off of etsy and I purchased this gorgeous farm scale from there about a month ago. With two kids it can defiantly be difficult getting out trying to shop IN STORES. Thank god for internet shopping. I love this piece because it can stay out all year long and theres so many different things you can store on top. I currently have some cute clock plates sitting on top. There nice because its decorative but also purposeful. I try to pick function over form when decorating because in a small house you have to utilize every inch of space. These pieces defiantly give you that farm fresh decor style if thats the way you’re going.
