A few months ago I found these brass justice scales in a thrift store.
I had been looking for a pair ever since I saw this room by Emily Henderson.
They are fun to play with but I also just like the look of them.

But what I really like about them is what they represent.
Paul is a Libra so the scales are his sign and he definitely embodies the traits of a Libra: balance-seeking, fair, accomodating, likeable and willing to compromise; dislikes cruelty, viciousness and conflict.
I read a quote about Libras recently that said "They always make you feel better for having been with them" which is exactly how I feel about Paul.
He is the much-needed balance in my life. While I know it is not always an easy job, it is one that he does very well and I am thankful for it.
