Vintage Rust

rust 007

I believe this is from the 20’s or 30’s…an old railroad sign.  Each button on the letters was to reflect light.

This is really not vintage but I love it….’cause it’s rusty!

I love old sickles, I have several, and the old rot iron gate is from our local cemetery.  No, I am not a grave robber….

Guess I should retitle this post, not vintage, either. But I love this handmade tote.

A new acquisition, a large rusty green disk.

Do you think this is a sign….that I should ‘hit the road again’….soon?

I like the shadow of the chicken run door, with the sun on it.

Very, very vintage barbed wire.

I think this is the top to an old kerosene freestanding fireplace.

I couldn’t get rid of this….it’s the mattress coils from the 1959 Aljo trailer that imploded. 


  1. I like the mattress coils....enjoyed your pictures as always.

  2. Love it. Headed for the road again? Can't wait to hear all about it. Have a great weekend.

  3. Love all the rust!!! My heart swooned! So where is the road calling this time? I think I've found her!!!! I'm so excited but I don't even know her official name or for that matter manufacture!!! I know details but love her shape! Hopefully picture soon!

    I love all your rustic goodies!!
    That RR sign is so neat-I've never seen one that old.
    It all makes me wonder about the one time owners and what their lives where like so long ago.
    Another trip? I just want to make that long trip home!!
    Take care-Kimberly

  5. All the pieces are nice, especially the wrought iron. It's getting hard to find.

  6. I love every one of these fabulous rusty treasures. I'm so happy to see that you still have the mattress springs, they're wonderful!!

  7. The RR sign is terrific and I'm pinning that tote.


  8. Karen, you really have a lot of interesting and pretty rustic treasures.
    Sounds like you're itching to travel again....
    Happy weekend!

  9. I have been computerless so I am trying to catch up.

    I love these pics and items. I now wish I had not thrown out that old porch light that looks like that lantern you have posted. I could have made a lamp out of it...
    live and learn.
