Rusty Stuff

The reason I call myself a rustic gardener is because I love rusty old metal garden and farming tools and old weathered wood. There's just something about the look of it that I enjoy, especially in the winter when everything is dead and there's nothing in the garden for the eye to appreciate. I have to limit my collection to just small items as I don't have the space for anything to large. I also love rusty metal yard decorations... now that I think about it, the garden & farm tools are merely decorative as I certainly don't use them as intended. If I had a larger yard, I would come home from each flea market and farm sale with a truck load of rusty stuff.

The following photos are of my favorite pieces.

We're holding your collection hostage with a can of WD-40. Send unmarked milkbones....

Mom has an old box of Milkbones in the garage that she fed to the neighbor's dog. I think it's half full, you can have that.
