Classic Style Using Authentic Treasures

It's all about living an AUTHENTIC life, being true to who we are and finding beauty and inspiration in our daily surroundings. Decorating our homes with found items and antique and vintage treasures, we create a personal ~ classic style ~ that defines who we are!

Sculpture Garden

In my travels along rural back roads~
I often come upon treasures from the past.
  
I was blessed when I spotted this outstanding
hay baler sitting proudly in the side yard of an old chicken house.



Its beautiful textured rust drew me in!




The curves and coils and tines created the most wonderful sculpture.


 

As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, 
I felt great appreciation for our chance meeting~



 
and left inspired by the experience!



 
There truly is beauty all around us!    
 



 Do you see it?




 Such a hard working piece of equipment,
with graceful lines and sculptural beauty!




 Live Authentically ~ Be the Real You!

Blessings,

Martha

I love stuff like this, your is such a great location filled with history. I have to travel south to find farmland, everything is so builtup here now. However we do have a ton of historic building and locations in town but an open field with a rusty tractor of a rickety barn is a sight for sore eyes in my world.

Beautiful pictures!!!
