Old, rusty, and corroded




I find a certain beauty in old, rusty and corroded things. So when I saw this old soap dish at Goodwill recently, I had to have it. I love the design, the two tiers, and the cut-outs in the metal.





Only $1.50 ~ can't beat that for beauty! I'm going to hang it in my laundry.

Don't you wish these old things could tell their story.
It looks like it might be copper?

With a little love and tender care this soap dish could be made very pretty. I love the design of it.

I apologize for not visiting my favorite blogs lately, and i promise to do some catching-up with everyone in the next few days. We are experiencing cooler weather starting today (Thursday) and as for myself I'm looking forward to falls return to the Lancaster Pennsylvania area. And are the color of the leaves changing your your way folks as they are mine. Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful fall season that has now begun. Richard from Amish Stories
