More Rusty Goodness From My Friend

Well, I haven't posted in a long time about Artsy stuff but I so need to get back into it as it really is what I love and think about most of the time when I am not otherwise occupied with everyday life.    

A while back I received another wonderful box of rusty goodness and some other items from my friend, Julie.   I am just so lucky to have her as my friend and trading partner.   We have been having a lot of fun trading items.     She is also a big time thrift store, garage sale, swap meet person like myself.   I would so much rather do this than visit any Mall around.

How about a game of horseshoes....way too cool........all rusted up.

That heart piece is really great,  and the buckles, springs and odd pieces of rusted goodness will be nice for certain projects.

All different kinds of things in this box including some rusted wire.

Flat pieces of rust and such.   On the side of the cigar box is an old rusted frame and a really cool old rusted rake.   Way too cool and long flat pieces to work with.

Oh my, look at all those faucet handles, knobs and such.   Way too much fun.

You can never have enough old bottle caps.

The mesh that she sent is just so cool. Will look great in an altered project or two or three.

Now I need to get going and make some things with all of these goodies that my friend sent me.   I hope it is cool wherever you are because it is Hotter than Heck here.   Oh how I miss the Pacific Northwest on days like is over 100 degrees in the SW Desert.


  1. Wowza, be still my heart...there's almost too much great stuff there to take in all at once....I can't wait to see what you create! A good excuse to stay inside in the air conditioning.

  2. I am excited to see what you make with some of those pieces. I love the faucet handles you got, after seeing that Tim had some in the class I took I wish I would have used one on my cabinet.
