AMAZING Rusted Inspiration by Rachel Whetzel
It's Rachel Whetzel here with some inspiration and a bit of a sneak peek! It's no secret that I ADORE all things rusty and crusty. The older, more used, more loved, more worn out the better. My kids used to point out old rusty cars on the side of the road and say, "Mom! You love that car, don't you? It's RUSTY!" My adoration is probably closer to an addiction if I am honest with you. I'm not above reaching into the dirt to pick up a piece of rusty metal or something else old and worn that catches my eye. Most often, those things end up in my pocket, and then in my stash of "Things to use to make something someday."
I am also a thrift store junkie. Anytime I visit the thrift store, I check the silverware bin. These habits are what bring you this inspiration post! Check out the adorable short handled spoons that I found! One of them is going to be just the perfect balance to the rusty metal bit I am working on molding and casting even as I type! Stay tuned! I will be sharing my casting adventure of the metal piece (front and back shown in the small images on the bottom left of the picture above) to use in a necklace I'm making!
Thanks for reading! I hope my bits and bobbles pile above inspires you to start getting your own bobble pile together, so that when I share more with you next month, you'll be ready to create a piece of your OWN! If you'd like to keep up with me, and see more of what I'm up to, I'd also love it if you'd visit MY BLOG and Subscribe! You can also find me on FACEBOOK!
