ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Time~Worn P*A*T*I*N*A*S...

When it comes to ViNtaGe Finds,  "My First LoVe"
is a Natural Time-Worn PATINA...    


I love the Rusty Patina on the
 Old Architectural Tin Panel...
*****
 The Metal Box's Old White Paint has acquired a FaBuLouS Time-Worn Paint Loss Patina...



The Wicker/Splint Basket has a
 "PerFecTly ChiPPy Paint Loss Patina,
 with many colorful layers poking through...
"Sooooo much more interesting than Brand New"...
(enlarge this one...)



You may find another metal box...
You may find another basket...
But what I LoVe BeSt ~ Is that each one is a "UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND" ~ ViNtaGe Find...  No two are exactly alike...



 All the different elements work so well together...

  1. I can’t see chippy/shabby without thinking of you. In fact I put it on my shop tags...sometimes shabby/chippy to shake things up. Hope your doing well. Enjoy the upcoming fall weather. Have a custard for me in
    that place across the street from The Pig on your main street. Love that place. nothing like it here...no Culvers either...miss my wisconsin.

  2. I can't imagine why some prefer clean, shiny, and pristine over chippy, peely, rusty, and, crazed!!

  4. Started at the top of your posts today (congrats on a great fair) and scanning down your blog. Just have to stop here and tell you how much I love how the green of the hydrangeas makes these photos pop.
