Rusty White

Hi everyone, I'm taking a small break from working on Gracie (I hope to have pics for you next week, cross your fingers), to join in White Wednesday. I love urns and have quite a few, I can remember years ago seeing them everywhere, and loving them. There is nothing like a rusty urn showing it age. I always wonder, what was planted in it, if it was in a cottage or a grand home. Most of the ones I own are not old (those are too expensive for me), but they still have lots of rust. Well if you leave them outside......

Here are three that I love, I put them on a rusty base table....
White and rusty.....
Rusty base table. I found the base years ago, rusty and white, then added a white painted wood table top. It is one of my favorites.
An urn with a lid, when I don't have flowers in it, it still looks good.
This one is really rusty and crusty.....
This one I painted white, planted it and left it outside, nice and rusty. As you can see I love urns, especially white and rusty ones. For more white inspiration go see Kathleen at
Ok I'm back to work, Happy White Wednesday.
See everyone next time.......


  1. I'm always on the lookout for these and they just don't turn up here! These are so pretty just gathered together! So much you can do with them too! Have a good break! I need one too!

  2. I always look for cast iron urns because they don't blow away where I live-I really like your rusty one!

  3. I love rusty! And white! Just gorgeous, that's how I have my garden, everything a bit worn around the edges! And I ADORE your headboard project below, I have been trying to figure out what I want to do for a headboard, this might be it! Love your little world, so happy to find you and happy to be your newest follower! XX!

  4. Love the way you have them grouped together. They make a wonderful statement, even empty! The table is great, too! LOVE it!

  5. I have just found your blog and have been enjoying reading several of your posts. I just adore white pieces that have rusted a bit. I also really like the way you have grouped them.
    Very nice.
