Rusty Tools for Decorating

I found these awesome rusty tools in my garage!


 They belonged to my father-in-law.
First I hung a couple and I liked them so much that I added more.



 I will admit it, not everyone sees the beauty in rust.



But the history and the obvious wear-and-tear on each one is a story in itself.



How hard he must have worked with some of these tools. He even built my husband's family home. 


What else did he build? What did he fix in his home?






I'm really proud to hang them up in my craft room to honor
the craftsman of days gone by. They inspire me.



And besides... I love rust, it's my favorite patina!
