Rusty Windy Decor

I'm still enjoying this painted wheelbarrow that greets us as we pull in the driveway.  I'm hoping next spring/summer I can have better luck with flowers planted in it, but for now, it is doing a good job holding pumpkins.

Just beyond the wheelbarrow is a little bit of rusty goodness we picked up this weekend.

This windmill was originally on a homestead about 30 miles away approximately 100 years ago!  
I found it for sale in my neighborhood via a Facebook selling group. 

This summer I saw a portion of a windmill hanging in an antique shop for sale.  We live in an area famous for wind & wind turbines, so I thought it would be fitting to decorate with a windmill. I immediately fell in love with the idea but not the price tag.  This one I found this weekend was more affordable…but a lot of work to get ready to hang. 

 I'm thinking we will hang a portion of about 7 blades on our extremely tall wall in the living room.

This windmill has a story to tell.  

There are areas with rusty repairs…

and with bullet holes!

I told my husband he could veto this whole idea since I will be leaving it up to him how to get it up on the wall. He was on board though, and this rusty beauty came home with us yesterday.
