REDNESDAY - RUSTY RELICS



Just a wee bit of snow left on the ground! Amazing, since there was still over two feet of it a few weeks ago.

I love the angle of the shadows in the early morning!

Okay, here's the (red) rust . . . I have no idea what these are, but Mister has them sitting out in front of the barn and they make for a nice photo!
EDIT: Dawn, of It Just Dawned On Me, commented: "Those rusty things in front of your husband's barn are old jacks for vehicles. Put them under the axle, put a metal rod in the hole in the side and turn it round and round to raise your car! Yes!! The cool thing is that you get to lie down on the ground underneath your slowly lifting car to make them work!" Thanks, Dawn!


Here's a cool red oil drum on our deck, with a rusted hand mower and a few shovels with worn red paint. Oh, and that pair of rubber boots has some red coloring to them, too!
(Now, I have no idea why there's an oil drum and a mower on our deck!)
FYI ~ the square box with the blanket on top is the cat "house" that Mister made a few years ago. It has three small 'rooms' (two with windows) and an opening on either end. But, of course, they prefer to sit on top of it rather than in it!

LOL - my cat never liked our cat house we got her either. :) LOVE the rusty pix - they go so great with the cute country and shabby chic style home decor I love. Thanks for another bright and cheerful REDnesday - perfect for this Sandwich Generation granny nanny after the - brrrrr - cold walk I just came back from with my senior mom. :)

Our last little patch of snow is finally gone, so to me that should mean it's full steam ahead for Spring-like weather!
Any cat that we had couldn't care less about the special little houses and beds that we'd spend time making for them. They'd do what THEY wanted, and I guess that's why I like cats so much!
Happy REDnesday!

Hi Sue!
I've been up since 3:15 over here WAH! Getting ready for my dad's funeral today. Just wanted to check in and see if you received my email? It wouldn't go through to the email addie you gave me, so I sent another, using the email your blog links to (if memory serves, that's what I did???! my brain is all a-jumble)
Happy Rednesday,
Sally

Thanks Sue, and Happy Rednesday!

For a second, I thought those rusty old jacks were rusty old trumpets on stands!

I love seeing all the photos every week ... the variety is amazing.

Your header just makes me so cheerful. Hopefully your snow will be gone, we had snow 2 days ago and today it will be in the 70's. Go figure. Lots of interesting old tools--have no idea but I love the rust.
