Rust and Patina

Some of today's finds.
Not sure what they are. Some kind of lock I think.

But look at those colors!
Perfectly rusted, patina metal.

Is this gorgeous? Or what?

oooh. More rust.
What have we here?

And Patina. Oh I'm lovin' this.

AAAAH! Take my breath away!

What is it???

Oh so cute.
A little, really old, sand box shovel.

That's al for today.
Saving some goodies for tomorrow too.

big blessings and happy Monday!!

Those are amazing. And the showel with the blue. It would look so good on a shed wal for pure decoration.
I am sure those lockers or what they are would look smashing in a frame on the wall also. Great finds my friend.:)

Hi Barbara Jean,
That shovel makes my heart sing....soooo precious and just the right amount of rust. Oh and to think how many of those have been thrown out because of that rust from being left in the sand and the rain.
Some real pretty stuff you got there!!!

Love the patina and rust. The second one might be a door bell with a slot for a name and address.

Barbara, I have some of these pieces, the odd ones that you said could be a latch or something. I always thought they were old window hardware, but don't know for sure.
