True Colours Thursday - Rust.


This week's colour is RUST.
I have a load of photos of rust in different shapes and sizes, but I wanted to show the colour not the actual effect.
So here's a single photo of my antique pie-funnel. Pie-funnels were used to help hold up the crust of a deep pie, and to let out the steam of cooking.
This funnel is lustre-glazed, and in the shape of a dragon - well, of course! It's about 4 inches high, and has a daft expression on its face.

Many more rust colours can be found through My True Colours. It's great fun seeing what people find.

Very nice choice, a very nice unique find as well.

Thank you for the explaination. I wouldn't have known what this fine specimen of dragon was used for. Daft expression? Yes, I see that, but it is a real beauty.

That's lovely.

That is a very unusual dragon and a very good idea for the theme :-)

Mother's was never that exotic.

Wise Woman of the West, please pop over to my blog and see if you can identify little pink things hanging onto a winkle's shell!

So unusual, I would never know what it was for! Rust is a lovely color!
So good to hear from you again, thanks for your sweet words, Miss Dragon! :o)

Kisses from us.
