Do not ask me why, but I like rust. I don't like it on things that I don't WANT to rust, but I like the look of it. Maybe it's the color?
Maybe it's the idea that the item is not "prissy," but hard-working?
My mom always shook her head when I'd head toward the "rusties." She didn't see what I saw.
Whatever the attraction, it is all over these cast iron fishing weights for commercial fishermen.
I also like the fact they have numbers on them which indicate the weight in pounds. They'd look great sitting inside or out.
Any other "rusty-lubbers?"
