Meet Rusty, Crusty and Chippy

Hi Bloggerettes!  I'd like to introduce you to a few of my good friends.  At first our friendships started out a little rocky but as time went on we got to know each other better. And now, we are best buds and hangin out together.

So allow me to introduce them. I would like you to me Rusty.  You might not like him at first but believe me he will grown on you.....

He's kind-of-a wallflower and prefers sitting on the sidelines.  He likes hiding out in old barns and out buildings, so sometimes you have to dress him up and bring him out!

Now I'd like you to meet Crusty. He's a cousin of Rusty's and has similar family traits. Crusty worries that he will "rub you the wrong way." So, please assure him that he doesn't. He knows how it feels to be tossed aside and wonders why others just don't "get him!
He just loves surrounding himself with lovely things.

He will remain a true friend for life...
His friendship is enduring.

Next, meet my friend Chippy.  When you first meet Chippy you kinda feel sorry for him. You see his scars and wonder how he's managed to survive. You want to smooth over some of his rumpledness and put a band aid on his wounds. Then you want to  fill-him-up because he's looking a little thin, but after you get to know him,
 you realize he's fine the way he is!

 Chippy can be very appealing.  He can make you feel nostalgic and melancholy.  He knows how to soothe your soul. 

 Chippy is a great mingler and can be found hanging out with Crusty and Rusty. Now tell me, you just can't ask for better friends that these three.

Rusty, Crusty and Chippy want to be your friends too.
Can they come over and play at your house?

Yep, I've lost it....I was going through the old barn again with my friend Peggy and I ain't been the same since.  I am now crushing on Rusty, Crusty and Chippy so please don't tell Mr. Sissie!

Be sure and stop by and get inspired!

Aww, this is just too doggone cute!! I have been collecting rust lately for my art--who would imagine it would be popular? Funny, huh?

Wishing you a wonderful evening!!!

Amy Kinser said...

Girl, look at you!!!! I love everything you have shown. The rustier, the chippier, the crustier, the better. Such wonderful personality.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Yes, I think you are totally zoning out now!! Cute post and I like your friends, too.

Rebecca said...

Dear Sissy (the crackpot!)...

When I was a little girl I concluded that boys with chipped teeth were never going to steal my heart away! And...if they had crusty ears...well~they were equally as YUCKY....


When I was only nine years old I fell in LIKE with a boy name Rusty... Ever since I've been sweet on anything that reminds me of him.

Just wanted you to know that I'm nuts, too! (hahahhahahahahha)

Missed you while I was away~


Pam said...

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Rusty, Crusty, and Chippy are great friends to have! Love their pictures that you shared with us.

Sares said...

What a fun post! I have to admit Chippy is my favorite followed by Rusty. I do have a little fear of him though since my tetanus shot is not updated! The hunt sounds like so much fun, You're turning into a picker!

CHERI said...

A really cute post! I can't say I'm really in love with Rusty...but do like him in some cases. Crusty...I like much better. Chippy...depends. I like a lot of shabby chic but not as much as some do I guess. I'm so eclectic in my tastes...can never really say what my style is. But I do know that I like yours!

Vicki said...

Rusty...don't go changing. Will you marry me?! lol Great post and pictures.

Denise said...

What a great group of friends you have. :) I love them all AND that pretty bouquet of flowers.

Debra@Common Ground said...

Great post, Sissie, I think my rusty, crusty piece of tin on my kitchen cupboard wants to play with your fabulous friends. Love seeing the dark side of you, missy Sissy! Thanks so much for the great post and link up!!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Oh how funny you are my dear friend. I have to admit you got me here. I would be embrassed to tell you what picures I thought were coming up...boy was I surprised and way off.
Too darn funny.
I should tell Mr. Sissie since you got me so good.
Come over and have a biscuit because thats what I am giving away now. lol Times are hard and I can't sew like you

Incipient Wings said...

Lululiz said...

Their cousins are living in France, at our cottage to be precise. The family resemblance is so obvious.

Sherrie said...

Be still my heart.....I have found my true love ........chippy. Solid but Rough around the edges, smooth in the center, his cares worn away with time....... I know he is yours. The better woman won. Sigh.
