When I bought this scale I knew I wanted it for my newborn photo shoot. I also love to use it for decorating for other holiday's as well. I used it for Valentine's and put a glass jar with yummy candy on top.
It added heighth and visual interest to my Valentine's display. A scale with a weight of delicious chocolate....perfect for Valentine's celebrating!
The basket was found at a local thrift store for 50 cents. It was the perfect size to set on top of the scale for the newborn photos. The inside of the basket (the bottom) was the size of the top of the scale so it was the perfect size. We are now using the white painted basket on top of my blue sideboard to hold my husbands keys, wallet and badge from work. It's decorative and functional.
All I had to do to the basket was to paint it antique white for the newborn photo because I was looking for a softer look than the natural brown color of the original basket.....so it got painted.
Wahooo!!! I love how the old scale and painted basket look in the photo (my awesome neighbor helped me pull off my vision)....and the newborn photo of my new baby girl turned out beautiful!!!! She's SO little!!! Love that little baby girl!!
