Metal madness continues






















I brought in several fine metal finds to my space at Faded Elegance today.  I can't put my finger on why metal and rust appeals, but it does!  These metal boxes - whether they be fishing tackle boxes or tool boxes - are great for organizing.  At home, I have one for holding old photographs, one for containing loose knobs and drawer pulls and one, a lovely shade of blue, that is my cash box when I am doing art shows.
This is a close-up of the blue box I brought back from Yakima - love the large leather handle.
This green metal box has a removable, divided drawer that sits just under the lid.  The metal bowl is vintage aluminum with a marvelous engraved floral pattern.
Details from both the box...
and the bowl.
I'm not quite sure what this was - some sort of galvanized sieve - but I love the patina...could be bowl for fresh fruit or veggies just picked from the garden...
"Summer's Bounty" continues at my space at Faded Elegance
until the end of August - Enjoy!

  1. I love rusty metal and the patina on these old surfaces. And like you, I keep a lot of my collections and supplies in olf metal boxes. I cannot get enough of them!
