Patina Garden - New Artwork

 I've finally gotten something new finished. I had so much fun with this one. Perhaps inspired by spring and my love of all things rusty and patina blue/green. 

 I loved the little buttons the moment I saw them with their metal centers that were all covered in patina. Natural beauty right there. I picked them up at The Rusty Chair in Rogers AR and Julie (the owner) said that another lady had been looking through the buttons and was somewhat grossed out by the patina on those beauties, I know, there's no accounting for taste, lol. But at least they were there for me!
Julie also gathered 2 of those large rusty flower shaped thing-a-ma-jigs, she and I knew at first glance that they were for me! I mean how cool and unique!
The rest of the metal bits and pieces and nails are things I found with my metal detector. I LOVE that thing! So many artsy treasures just waiting to be found underground.

Have a great week everyone! Hugs!
