Oh do I love rust.
I shop for rust
I try to surround myself with rust.
Just check out this cool rusty lantern.

And guess who is having a rust party this very weekend?
at Funky Junk Interiors

So I gathered up some of my rusty pieces,
and I'm sharing them with you all.
(mind you, this is only a small sampling!)

Love the green color on this milk can,
and rust too?
What more could a girl want?

And here is a rusty scale.
Now to find a bucket for it.

oooh. coraly pink. rust. old. Heavenly!

Oh, and must have some rusty keys and locks for my art.

rusty hinge....

rusty box....

rusty garden tools.
These are getting harder to find now.
I have a whole box full of rusty hinges, and bracket.
Sparing you and just showing a sampling. =)

rusty pieces of fence for a project.

A big rusty bug
(cause it rains a lot in Oregon) =)

rusty scissors.
Oh, and more rusty hinges, Also
threw in a couple of things I rusted, and look at the patina on them.
Patina, and rust. The perfect combo.

Thanks for letting me show you my rust.
Now go on over and see all the other rusty stuff at Donna's.

Have a super weekend!!

Lucky girl! Love the scale. I'm sure you'll find the perfect rusty bucket. I'll look around the farm and bring you some 'rust' next time I come down.
Blessings, Karen

Barbra you can go to the bottom of my site and hit older post and there you will find my rosettes on a lamp shade and as tassels :)

I would have loved to have had it as a recent post to join in on the fun...But it was an older one that I snuck in, I hate to miss out on a party! :)

Thank you for your visit.
