Vintage Inspiration Friday " patina of old "



The years of worn have such

a beautiful patina...


Vintage bottles, worn hymnals and an old bucket

were my inspiration this week

for a table scape by my window.



I love how beautiful its looks when the

sunlight shines through...




I added this vintage ashtray to the table 

the patina sent my heart soaring...



I draped the table with old white gauze

and worn nubby burlap...




Added some old books and fragments to

this aged garden piece...


I am joining the lovely Debra today





Much love to all of you
XOXO
