For the Love of Rusty Old Things
For the love of rusty old things…
There’s no way to really describe it. You either love it or you don’t. But if you have a love for rusty old things, then this post will make sense to you…
In one word, art.
I love the colour of the turquoise as it bubbles and cracks against the rust.
Vintage links of hardworking chain…

What’s your guess? Do you know what the first life of each object might have been?
And for all my buddy DIY-ers out there,
This paintbrush is for you!
Love these vintage square-cut nails.

So deep and rich, especially with the tangerine tango of the leaves! The weather today feels like it could be autumn all over again…
Would you put these on top of your wrought iron fence?

Would you give them a makeover or leave them just the way they are?
I bet you’ll never guess what this rusty piece is…

Would you believe it’s actually created in Photoshop? This is not a real object, it is layers of colour, texture and special effects! And no, I didn’t create this. I only wish I did!
What’s your style? Do you like rusty old stuff, or do you prefer some glam and shine?
Thanks for stopping by!
