Getting Old and Rusty, Pebble 2

I have a collection of
old metal pieces.
Drawer pulls,
furniture knobs,
door hinges
and things like that.
I also have a jar
with rusty steel wool
 pads in it.

You know,
a girl can never have,
too much rust!
I have old washers,
bits of chain,
a few bottle caps
all quietly gathering rust. 
 For Pebble #2
I will use this rust,
to the best of my ablity.
I have my piece of muslin
steeping in a champagne
glass of rust,
along with a few other
Pebble Adventure #2
begins tomorrow!

Love to all,

Well I'll be holding my breathe-- I don't know how you can top the first one!

Such an interesting idea and I shall be following your progress. This brings to mind "Rat Rods" which a absolutely adore because of the embracement of rust and imperfections. Happy rusting and encrusting...

Oh the intrigue Deb!!!!
I love rust too and to think this will be part of Karen's class piece I'm wondering.....
whatever you come up with will be perfect I'm sure - you have such great taste dear Deb!


Doreen G said...

So you are a rusty nut as well Deb--What else do we have in common?
Maybe you should drop some threads in the glass as well to get them rusty and ready to use.
