White: Plain and Simple

 For your viewing pleasure on White Wednesday.
some rustic cuteness.....
 This picture...and the 2 after it,
are random bits of my friend Karen's fabric books she makes.
(I'm probably not calling them the right thing.)
I'll show you more later on...
 How simple, but sweet, is this little pin on a piece of lace.
and lace on a ledger page....

Barbershop Luxury, inside of razor box...
and this is a piece of a typewriter we took apart.
Here it is..not white..but rusted.
LOVE IT. Will make a cute and unique photo holder.
(note on rusting: put part in vinegar with salt.
leave over night, lay out to dry. 
Wah lah! Rust or Patina,
 depending on type of metal.)
More typewriter parts, and rusty stuff soon.

Joining White Wednesday....my fave party!!

Barbara Jean I have totally been trying to figure out how to rust stuff ~ What are the measurements of the vinegar and salt ?
I love it!

Vinegar and salt? I have to try that. It looks like magic.
