GOING RUSTY TO THE FLEAS

 

It’s always fun to go to the flea market but try for once having an unusual purpose : a colour theme or a material reference or a vintage axle.

I chose today to go rusty on acqua – blue colours : it gave me a different purpose and it was unusual fun as you start noticing things differently.

 

Try !

The day started pretty well with this car sign , don’t you think ? Not that I can picture that piece of metal in my Parisian living-room !

Old tubs , rusty ok !!!!!! Seems like straight from Haiti.

Delicate handwriting  on the tin, but won’t tell you what it is for !!! Ta da !

Do you think our 21st century kids still know what those cubes are ?

So dazzling ! I wish I could hang it somewhere, so elegant .

Where to ? All congestures are possible;  a key : how a piece of metal can hold all sorts of promises or past stories.

A key : an opener and a closing. Ugh ! I can go all “philosophy” there !

 

BLUE IRON

Looks like a Fleur de Lys, so French.

A travelling door , by travelling I mean, obviously enough, it doesn’t come from Provence so it might be coming from far-away countries ; makes your mind travel just by looking at it.
