Have you had your dose of rust today?

A poor, sorry little barn sits in the distance. The shelter in the foreground, a shade run-in for a large herd of cattle, or perhaps cover for round bales of hay to be stored there. Either way, your rust-o-meter should be registering full, now.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Hello, my name is Wayne and I'm a rust addict. I have my fix for today, thank you. Where can I get more?

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

As a matter of fact, I hadn't had any rust so far today, so thanks for the hit.

Buttons said...

Thanks for the dose of rust I seemed to have been down a pint. B

Maple Lane said...

Thanks for the dose of rust today!

Bernadine said...

Hmmm... with that wavy top, it doesn't look like the rust is going to stand much longer.

Comment1 said...

Didn't even know I had a rust-o-meter, but yes, registered full!

Betty Roan said...

Great title! Yep, rusty. Cool, though.

S. J. Q. said...

Good hit on my rust-o-meter!

Good morning, T.

The older I get the more I appreciate the beauty of rusty ole things.
Thanks for my daily dose, T.

Becca said...

Barbara said...

It's strange how a little rust adds beautiful to something!

Margaret said...

Oh, I love the shot of the eagle and flag below! And that rust "patina" is kind of beautiful! :)

Wanda plain~N~simple said...

The rust is probably what's holding everything together!

edenhills said...

I never have a lack of rust around here, but I like your appreciation of it!

rkbsnana said...

That's a whale of a lot of rust

Tracy said...

Awww, looks neglected~

Jeevan said...

The shelter still charms at rust! Nice shots

Bob Bushell said...

Oh, he looks so sad & sick.

DJan said...

Yes, I'd say I got my fill for now. No need for more rust on my end... :-)

Paula said...

*haha* The ol' rust meter is way up there!
Poor little barn... somebody needs to fix that thing up!

Lynne said...

Now that is a bunch of rusted metal . . . perfect shade though for whatever . . .

Jan n Jer said...

Rust-o-meter!!!! LOVE IT!!!

Sandra said...

my favorite part of the post is rust-o-meter. I love taking photos of old rusty things and this is certainly rusty. daddy would be up there with aluminum silver paint rolling away.

Jana said...

We just call this a beautiful shade of red and that sounds better than rust.......Rust sounds like work needs to be done on it LOL

Daryl Edelstein said...

rust is fascinating to see at work .. I should get a shot of our wrought iron window guards where the paint is peeling off, you can see this amazing rust below and the iron is looking very turquoise ..

Allison said...

I haven't, but I would love to cut a heart out of that rusty roof and hang it up by the front door!

Allison said...

I haven't, but I would love to cut a heart out of that rusty roof and hang it up by the front door!

Michelle said...

Lol...you have a way with words. Yep, my rust-o-meter is full. :)

Jill said...

Love rust. My mind is racing thinking of everything I could do with those rust panels!

Hanne Bente said...

Smiles ..... wonderful speech.
Maybe I rust up inside, of all the water I drink.
Wishing you a good day.
Hugs Hanne Bente

jackie said...

Hello. I'm very glad to visit your blog. Wonderfull post, Thank you!

Chatty Crone said...

Now I have had my dose of rust. sandie

Rohrerbot said...

Interesting roof....looks very very weathered. How have the shingles not been blown off by a storm?:)

bailey-road.com said...

I'd love to hear rain on the rusty metal roof.

rainfield61 said...

I do oiling everyday.

And shall continue to do so.

No dose of rust required.

Honest Abe said...

The shelter roof would be in great jeopardy if there was a violent wind storm that came through. That tin roof would fly off like dozens of weed whackers.

Donna said...

I get my dose of rust just getting out of bed in the morning!

Debbie said...

haha...my rust-o-meter is overloaded, love your title!!

great find!!

Randy said...

Take it down and build something new I say.

Linda said...

You almost make rust look pretty. Too bad it's so damaging.

Lois Evensen said...

I'm sure the cattle love the covered walkway and couldn't care less that it is rusty. Nice image!

Dianne said...

I love the look of rust
I call it nature's paint
that shelter is huge!
reminds me of the covered walkway we had in high school, it was like walking to the electric chair ;)

Liz said...

Great barn!! I just love rusty rooves, it adds to the character.

Farm Girl said...

Wow, that is a lot of rust. It looks like all it needs is a little love.

missing moments said...

Rust away ... but at least that will be there longer than my shingles!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I wonder if rusty ole roof is for providing shade for livestock? Nice photo!

Red said...

Super rust but I really like the leaning posts and the total misshapen form off the decaying shelter.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Rust is a must! There is oodles of rust to be had at Bodie Ghost Town which I will get to soon in our latest travels.

Pearl said...

Thanks to you, I am rust-saturated. :-)

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...At my age I am plenty rusty ; } thank you anyway I'll pass!! lol
I do like seeing old rusty roofs on barns though!!!
grace

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hmmmmmm----I love seeing 'things' in front of barns... But--rust is usually not one of them!!!!!! ha ha

Thanks for my dose of RUST today!!!! Now --do you want some of my WEEDS????? ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Fiona said...

Rust and lots of it!!

But still a pretty photo.


x Fiona

Karen said...

Rust makes for good photos!

Robin said...

T, great colour in that old rust!

Sylvia K said...

It does make for colorful??? photos! Great shots for the day as always!

EG CameraGirl said...

I love photos that feature rust so this one makes me smile wide. :)

lisa. said...

Indeed it is!
Great shots.

Paula said...

I had my dose of rust yesterday when I moved a metal cabinet with the microwave on it. It had rusted the floor underneath. Mental note: Got to turn off the puter and clean more often.

Julie G. said...

Love the title! Thanks for fulfilling my rust ration for the day.

polkadotpeticoat said...

Oh the weathered beauty of rust!!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

That is a LOT of rust. I thought we would only see that in Indonesia, while living and working there. They use those corrugated roofs a lot and high in the mountains, with an enormous annual rainfall, it looks pitiful. Rust at its best. But now I see that Texas is competing!
Love to you,

Mariette

Amy Burzese said...

That is a sad sight. But, I love rust also!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Love those rusty roofs! My grandparents had a tin roof like that for years when I was little. So a little nostalgic for me. Wonderful images.

Patty Woodland said...

I thought it said "dust" and I was waiting for a photo of a dust devil

bon bon said...

nice pics! they remind me of that childhood poem about the crooked man who walked a crooked mile...i can't recall but it probably mentioned rust also. ;o)

Pat Tillett said...

I didn't just want that rust,
I needed that rust...

Rust never sleeps!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Since you coined barnery and fencery, is this called rustery?

islandwonder said...

I have been wanting a pair of rust colored Capri pants. Maybe this will hold me for another day.

Łucja-Maria said...

Hello, wonderfull post.
Thank you...

Excelentes registos....

Giga said...

Rdza będzie jadła i jadła daszek, a wreszcie on zniknie :-). Pozdrawiam.
Rust will eat and eat peak, and finally to eat it :-). Yours.

SweetMarie said...

How did you know I needed a dose of rust? You have now made my day complete! :) This looks like a great shelter for cows.
Great photos and perfect title!

Ellie said...

Rusty or not I bet the cows appreciate the shelter. :)

Ellie said...

Rusty or not I bet the cows appreciate the shelter. :)

Denise said...

I will never ever get enough of old rusty barns. Such a pretty sight, rust and all.

Faye said...

My teeth are on edge from all that rust! :-) I love all these Texas-sized solutions for farm problems that you show on your blog. In Sweden they wrapped round bales of hay in white plastic and just left them in fields like huge white marshmallows. That wouldn't work in your high temps, would it?

Katie @Pinke Post said...

I usually just see rusty old equipment around not rusty barns. Love it. Thanks for your kind comment today. Made my day.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

I sure did. I've noticed that the barns down in the south are very different from up here.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

LoL at Wayne's comment...

Yep Yep, love the rust... every spec of it!

Thanks for joining, TWG! =)

Betty Manousos said...

i'm sure the cattle love the shelter.
thanks for my dose of rust today.

Fjällripan said...

Thats really a large rusty roof :)

MarmePurl said...

Yikes...kinda funny. I had a traveling painter show up on my farm last week, trying to sell me rust proofing for my barn roof. Perhaps he is seeking work in the wrong part of the country :)

Terri Buster said...

Wow that's some serious rust going on there!

Andrew said...

It's amazing it's still standing looking at the state of it..

BlueShell said...

That is Amazing! I've never seen such thing!
Intriguing!
Have a good night sleep, Theresa!

Brita said...

Old, rusty and worn. Abandoned? / Brita

Mama Zen said...

I'm betting it's for hay!

barbara l. hale said...

Lol...rust-o-meter. I need one of those for my joints. Nice old rusty barn.

Angela said...

Now that is a strange looking shelter! I honestly don't see how it would keep anything dry in the rain at all! lol

Inger said...

I have a shed that's rusty but not that bad.

SquirrelQueen said...

My Rust-O-Meter is, happily, going off big time. I just love scenes like this.

Montanagirl said...

That's a lot of rust!!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, My bet is that the little shelter was for the animals - most would put the hay into a big barn or would simply tarp the huge bales. Who knows? Lots of rust, though. Nice scenic pictures. Have a good day tomorrow!

Birdman said...

I like rust a lot... closeup and off in the distance.

eileeninmd said...

The rust adds to that country charm, great find! Have a great evening!

Deb said...

I love rust....cool photos...

Nancy's Notes said...

No rust today, thanks for sharing yours!!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Wow, we're not in Philly any more:@) Cool pics!

Tammy said...

I like the coordinating rust on the two structures!

Maple Lane said...

Me again.....I drove to the store today after reading/commenting on your blog post. A 1930 something car went roaring around me and it was completely rusted!!! I wonder if you can have an overdose of RUST????

Barb said...

Very rusty . . . love it!

(GBS) NewsFromTheHill said...

It does look low... and like a strong wind might blow tin panels across the county!

Michelle said...

LOVE rust! lol

Catherine said...

Just rust on the brain...these photos are much nicer. :)
xo Catherine

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Sort of a pretty color actually.

heyBJK said...

I like rust on old barns and buildings, but this has more than its share! It's been around a while.

Marie said...

Yep, that's a lotta rust! :-)

Bev said...

Hmm...so that's rust?:)

Ann said...

What are those sheets? Looks to me like rusted aluminium sheets ( used as roofs and walls in Borneo.)

Thanks for telling me that it was you I told my story to. I jotted a note, asked my friend and cousin for their photos, then I forgot it was you that inspired me to write the post.

I will be going back to Borneo, the reunion is on july 7th. I will be rehashing that story of Mr. Lee.

Beth said...

cute title. (:

pattisjarrett said...

Good thing my tetanus shot is up-to-date!

Candy C. said...

Hey, they missed a spot when repairing the roof on the front building! ;-)

Nancy said...

The rustomatic gauge is registering at full capacity. :)

Rita said...

Rusty shade for something. Nice contrast to the green, though. :)

subbu said...

The shelters looks still good enough to use! Liked the rust top

Rita said...

I wish they could put that color in a spray can. Lovely capture.

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Wow...that's a lot of rust!

Linnea said...

How funny! It looks like all the solar panels we see around here in California - only they're not rusty! Thanks for stopping by at my barn.

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

Are these 1st generation solar panels? No wonder they needed improvement
