    Lovely, I used to play with a set of black scale when I was young. Love this

  • Hey there Kala, that must have been great fun, my grandchildren really love making cakes and weighing out the ingredients with the scales and weights.

    Awesome shot, Don…..love the dark background and the gorgeous tones in the scales & weights!! Well done! Hope the buns were good…!!!

  • Hey there Wendi, thank once again my friend. The buns were marvellous apart from my wife read the recipe wrongly and put double the amount of flour in to them:-) They came out like old fashioned rock cakes. LOL
