Sunday Sampler 12-1

Still settling in to our new Tennessee home! Did some holiday decorating and put up a our small Christmas tree. Still weaving around boxes, but most of the living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom are clear (well, almost!).

This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of one of my favorite subjects – RUST! On Friday we went to a “Gas and Oil Memorabilia Show”. It’s held at a cool antique shop we discovered last summer (which, by the way, will be a part of my upcoming barn workshop!). They have some cool old cars out front, all kinds of things around the property, and a huge building filled with “stuff”! This is the truck that these rust images came from:

I did some basic editing in Lightroom, then added a texture preset in Topaz Studio.

I’m sure you’re “done” with all the Black Friday talk, but wanted to send a last reminder of these deals that expiring at midnight tomorrow on Cyber Monday!
