For the Love of Rust

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: (NIV)Ecclesiastes 3:1





I think my favorite projects are ones that use things that would have ended up at a Landfil or Scrap yard.

The Scrap yard was the destination for this little beauty.





Lately I've had a thing for clocks and clock faces. I wanted to use a large clock of some sort in my bathroom redo. So I went in search of something to use as a base, that's when I spotted this (there were 2, still thinking on the other)



Old rusty barrel lids, can you see the beauty in this?



I love how the edges are scalloped, and the different shades of rust, it just makes me smile!



In my stash of scrapbook stuff, I had these cardboard numbers, which I sprayed painted silver. They looked a little too new, so I gave them a little bit of rust with some rust colored paint, much better.

This is my favorite little place to decorate, and
re-decorate. I call it "My own Little Corner" You know like Cinderella "In my own little corner, in own little world"



I added a small old saw, to my berry wreath, the rusts match!

This little birds nest I made from chicken wire and moss, and added little blue speckled clay eggs I made.





Thanks for visiting, Please consider following and helping me build back up my blog after my original was so rudely stolen.

Please leave a comment and let me know you were here!

Have a Great Day, and God Bless you!

  12. That clock is amazing - the letters look like metal. I also like the finished bread bin in the other post -it's so frustrating when something goes wrong isn't it.
    Thanks so much for stopping by my place - following you back !

  15. I love your clock, Lorrie! I can see that you would look at it and see a clock ~ I would, too. Great luck that the numbers fit on there. My luck would have me with numbers way too big or way too small!

  26. This is very clever! I supposed you drilled a hole to place the clock mechanism? It turned out great! PS - I didn't know blogs could be "stolen"...what have you learned about how to protect our blogs?! Info would be so appreciated! Thanks for sharing; I'm following you now. I hope you'll visit back. ~Zuni
