Halloween decor...these are not my children...LOL.
The one great rust item that got away...Mr. KFC himself!  Even though I adored his rusty patina, unfortunately he was a bit too spendy for my pocket book.  (My dad LOVES KFC and he would have gotten a kick out of it!)

Don't we all love it? Mother nature's natural patina...RUST!   Whether heavily coated or showing just a hint, items with rust add character and warmth to any decor...cottage, funky, industrial, traditional, modern, primitive.  The rich luster of this age exposed element adds depth, texture and stately charm to any tabletop or vignette.  When you see any posts published on this site from me, 9 times out of 10 there will be some sort of rusty element featured.  I have thought seriously about changing my blogger name from ND Junk Girl to ND Rusty Junk Girl...hmmm...

chippingcharm writes: Completely agree my friend...great top 10 choice! Love it all...but the rusty colonel made me smile. My maiden name was "Sanders" so I would have found him "tempting" too :) Laurel Posted: 4:55 am on January 26th
JunkArchitect writes: Andrea, that is such an endearing photo of you and the Colonel. He's a little creepy looking but his Extra Rusty suit must be what won over your heart...and that big cane!

I love it all!

JunkSituation writes: Excellent pics of some great rusty eye candy:) The scales look cool all bunched together, the kid pic is hilarious! And my fav is the footed candle holder. Oh, I know we'd have fun shopping together:)
