|"Urban Rust", collage, acrylic, photos & digital|
A little tired from the past busy days ...
I fell asleep with the tv on, CNN no less!
Waking up with an overdose of negatives ...
I came in here & vented in my journal,
one of the repeatable lines was ...
"wanna go back to bed and pull the covers over my head!"
I felt a need for sunlight so sat outside for
my daily morning prayers/meditation.
It did help, it's a beautiful 77' cloudless SoCal day.
Sometimes I really need to refocus!
But, sometimes I get distracted.
I love rusty stuff, old tools, farm stuff ,,,
I am from Indiana after all!
Aunt Fern let me pick out some goodies when
I was first married, to bring home to California.
Back then we had high ceilings & a huge wall of tools.
Two-man saws, pitchforks, you name it.
When I moved to this tiny condo, the tools had to go outside.
And they have, over the years, rusted beautifully.
This morning I looked over saw these ...
|rings, nails, bottle caps and name tags|
and started sorting.
Somebody wore those!
|c-clamps, railway spikes & hooks|
It may not look like much to you ...
but I think they are beautiful!
|all sizes of rings|
And, I have plans! I even have a tentative name for the tags ...
how about "rusty treasures" ?
So these are the before pictures.
|egg beater & separator, spring & exhaust pipe|
What do you think?
|doorknob & corn-shucking hand gear|
Am I crazy?
|yep, curling irons & saw blades|
Crazy can be good, right?
You see, I am in a holiday sale on December 2 & 3 ...
and I think you might see some of these there?
Stay tuned for after pictures, sometime.
Oh, my Christmas cactus asked to be shown.
Grown from a 2" tiny container over the past 20 years.
How could I refuse?
PS* I've got my fingers & toes crossed, hoping for ...
a comment from you? I really need feedback!
A smile for Tuesday ...
