Got Rust?

Hello Readers,
Thanks for stopping by today. I read a lot of blogs and a few weeks ago the very lovely Rosemary posted a segment on her blog about bottles and mercury. She listed her ingredients and one of them is "rust" I started to giggle, I asked "who keeps rust" or "where does one find "rust" well it's not that hard to find.

Look here folks I've got myself a small cup of RUST!! Clean your gas grill and believe me you'll have rust too! So what am I going to do with it?
Remember my three little birdhouses? Click here to see #1


 Well here is #2
I used the rust to create a shingle look for my birdhouse and then I applied moss to give it a more rustic appearance.
I used Mod Podge to apply the scrapbook paper
 I rubbed on dark wax too
you just never know what "tidbit" of information will come in handy. Thanks Rosemary I owe you :)
