Red and Rustic

An Accidental Theme

Lately, things have appeared in my life that all have a theme; red, and rustic.  First it was the garden weeding stool, with a faded red seat like a tractor.

My Red and Rustic Theme...

Then, the little rustic table with the faded rusty paint appeared, and begged to be rescued from the recycle center, under the frowning gaze of he who must be obeyed.

Next I scrounged the funny curved pieces of wood, which turned out to be table legs for another little table; that's a project of a different color.

Metal tins that have gathered dust for ages on my shelves in the kitchen needed a sponge bath; some are vintage, others just reproduction.  That doesn't matter, as long as they're red.

I'm having fun with the serendipity of it all, and can't wait to see what else red and rustic shows up out of the blue...

This is where it all started; with the red tractor seat...

Weathered grey and with the paint almost worn off...

A reproduction Chinese rug has all the right attributes - it's red...

Old wicker chairs that someone painted red - it wasn't me!

...will be perfect with the red wicker chairs.

Red herringbone twill fabric...

Curtains, maybe?

Red georgette fabric...

Some pillows with red velvet or red plaid?

Vintage and not so vintage tins...

More color...

Semper Solaire...

I love the color of this sign, with the red background.

and to top it all off, a Rustic Garden Wreath in red tones...

A rustic garden wreath in red tones would be the perfect accent...

The lovely jewel tones of these beads are not a surprise when you figure out what they really are - pomegranate seeds!

So there you have it; I'm on a red and rustic kick.  Updates to follow, as the cottage gets built - I have to have somewhere to put the items here, after all.
