Lighten Up!

Indulge in some sweet, sweet humor with these hilarious bathroom scales meant to make that "moment of truth" not quite so dreadful. Choose from the slightly wicked "Bittersweet" (Go ahead, indulge yourself. You deserve it) to the sassy "Ignorance is Bliss" (The numbers never lie. That's why we got rid of them.)

Both scales are divided into five-pound increments, but instead of numbers "Bittersweet" features positive affirmations such as "Simply Ravishing" and "I'm a perfect ten," while "Ignorance is Bliss" does away with numbers altogether. Art by Wendy Gold. Scales made in China, printed in California.

“Inspiration has come to me steadily throughout life, and I have been fortunate to be able to chase it,” says Wendy Gold. She explains that as a teenager she “spent countless hours creating insanely intricate friendship bracelets, kaleidoscopes, and ceramic musical instruments,” and in college made a headboard for her bed so big that she couldn’t get it out of her room when she moved out. Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. By using recycled materials, vintage globes, and maps, she creates beautiful, geographic art.

        I love this scale! I no longer "dread" stepping on the scale. Surely I can figure out what the number is, but it's more fun to see what I fall under.

                A weighing scale with no numbers is not a scale. The scale had no numbers!!
