Rust

Hi group!  I don't have much rust round my house, but I thought of a rusty horseshoe I bought at a garage sale this summer.  So I took a picture of it alongside a couple seen-better-days zinnias, but I thought their brown petals went with the rusty horseshoe. The little "good luck" tag is canvas stained with coffee then stamped.  And the safety pins I rusted myself!  Never tried that before.  The trim on the bottom was gold-- too gold so I painted it.  Looking forward to seeing what everyone does with this theme!

  1. What a great idea, I have an old horse shoe for luck and you have made it into a great tag! (I wonder why horse shoes are lucky?)x
