ummm patina.....



oh my.........this is my thing.........i am a patina, texture kinda gal





bricks covered with moss..........old blue paint on the side of an old table...........the door to the outhouse.......................





an old laundry basket..........................







old limestone.....................i love the way the stone ages.......

the way the moss creeps into the cracks and crevices and shows

it's age and tells the story.............................
my daddy made this log planter..................and the limestone birdbath was his first piece of lathe work....................(he had to beg my mamaw not to paint it!).......................the piece with the scripture was made by our daughter in a Bible class in college............................

i so love how the moss has collected and stayed in all the right places...............








just a few of my favorite patina pieces.........................i could go forever on the this one.............



..............................................................................................i am blessed !
