About This Group

This group is for those that see beauty in the shape of a dead tree. We recognize that a wilted rose is still lovely. All forms have beauty. In this group we will show the beauty of things the world would discard as withered. We like to see the age and the “Heart and Soul” of things……NOTHING RESTORED or SHINY, NEW & PRETTY! MUST be worn out and grungy. Just because its VINTAGE, as in AUTOS, doesn’t mean its worn out. It has to LOOK worn out. Otherwise it will be rejected. Cemeteries and Graves MUST show age, with moss lichens, etc.
**See my sister Group, Crosses, Crafts & Collectibles for the pretty restored stuff!!…..
