I am having so much fun using the vintage double-pan scale.
This year, the lower mantle features a vintage microscope that I purchased from an antique shoppe in Carmel, IN. I added one of the preserved insect specimens to the slide. As a science educator, I adore vintage science-type equipment.
A trophy cup filled with pheasant and peacock feathers and a framed creepy hologram photo add to the Halloween spirit.
On the scale I added a foiled pumpkin, a silvered skull dressed with a fancy chapeaux, and a glittered hand.
A vintage kodak box camera adds to the vintage Halloween flair.
Vintage leather-bound books add to the vignette.
At the base of the mantle, the large clam shell hold glittered hands, glittered chains, and eyeball orbs. Spooky fun!
The upper mantle shelf features two new prints. More later....
