Measuring Time

Another task I managed yesterday was to clean out half...yes only half of my kitchen cupboards.....
Right in the back I found this beauty...
It was my mum's kitchen scales.
As soon as I pulled it out the memories of mum in the kitchen baking for us continually came  flooding back.
The measurements are all in pounds - which is great when I cook from her ancient CWA cookbook.
Something else you don't see very often is - Made in the Republic of Ireland.
I wonder how much it cost mum when she bought it or maybe it was a wedding gift.

It is in really good condition so I shall leave it out and find a suitable place to display it in my kitchen to be a reminder that baking for my family is something I learnt from my mum.


  1. Hello Taylor. I hope it's ok that I always start every visit to this space with a little thought to you.
    And I LOVE those scales. What a great find. Funny how they've lasted all this time while my red ones are on their way out after abot three years.

  2. Oh what a treasure! I love how things/songs/smells can bring memories just flooding back like that... awesome!

  3. Bron,
    I have some fond memories of your Mum...
    She was a true lady.


  4. Hi Bron..it's lovely to rediscover something that brings back good memories. Are you going to use them..and convert all your recipes to pounds and ounces?..lol.


Thanks for stopping by and saying Hi....I love having your support. I will do my best to pop back to you and say hi. xx
