I have memories of using her old weighing scales, putting the brass ounce weights onto one side of the scale and pouring the ingredients into the brass bowl on the other side.

I was going to put this post up as my second Craft Crush but decided against it, partly because it isn’t strictly a craft and because this post has made me so happy that it deserves its own glory!
