What is it about rusty, crusty, and worn pieces that attracts us?
Bringing pieces inside that once graced gardens, and patios are now found on our tables, and mantels.
Mixing items with our indoor furnishings.......
Peeling paint, and moss covered items........
Cracked and rusty.
Clay, wood, tin, cement, and iron.
Adding ribbon and lace takes the rusty to elegant.
It puts the chic in shabby.
It adds the country to French.
and adds the style to prairie.
I love old fence posts, porch posts, and iron frames inside the house...as well as fences, and gates.
We live in an old cottage. It allows me to be able to decorate in the style I love.....VERY shabby, with lots of architectural pieces.
The more rustic, the better!
The title to this post in no way applies to my home.
I am referring to pieces that I collect only, and love to add ribbons and lace to them for a romantic feel.
I hope your holiday weekend was enjoyable.
I had a blast!
