Thinking About Rust

I've been thinking about rust today! Not the color but the real thing. It has such an appeal to me and I was wondering why. I don't usually have time to analyze my decorating choices! I like what I like and I put it how I like it and that's it. Until I rearrange it a week later anyway. But I was in the house alone today... and I noticed that I have several rust patina accessories around. I decided it's because of the earthiness it brings to a room. It is heading back there after all! My cottage just seems to call out for nature inspired themes. Our backyard is about an acre of solid woods, deer prance through the neighborhood in herds and we're only a few miles from the lake. I think rusty items fit right into Cottage Glamour style. What about you? What brings the glamour to your cottage?
