You Capture – Rustic

Okay, I have to admit I was very intimidated by this assignment from Beth.  Rustic.  Well, I do live in a place where there is lots of history, but the past week has been crazy busy and I just never made it out on a hunt for what I had pictured in my mind for “rustic”.  Then as I started looking at other people’s captured moments, I was visiting Tiaras and Tantrums, and I had inspiration.  I have old, antique-y things in my house.  So, in the middle of working, I stopped to take pictures.

My favorite picture is of an iron that came from Traveler’s mom.  I have no idea where she got it, but it is old and beautiful looking.



In walking through my house I also found this


This little Radio Flyer scooter also came from T’s mom.   From what I have been told, my girls are the 3rd generation to ride it.  So, maybe it doesn’t fit into the “rustic” frame of mind, but picture it being ridden around in the dirt in front of a little house in the early 1950s.  (And I love that it is prominently stamped “Made in the USA”.)

So thanks T&T for giving me inspiration to participate this week.  Next week’s challenge is “Letters”.  Wanna play along?

    Nice rustic pictures! I like the iron too because it screams rustic but that wagon? I love it the MOST. I like that you captured Made in U.S.A., something we don’t see so prominently displayed anymore and I love that it looks so dated. Very nice!
