SPC Self Portrait Challenge "Patterns"


We continue with this months challenge of patterns on SPC.
As I thought about this week I remembered what my delightful five year old daughter told me a month or so ago....
G: "Great, nobody will ever think I'm beautiful."
Me: "Why would you say that! People think you're beautiful."
G: "Because, everybody says I look like you and you look tired and rusty!"

Ahhhhh, such a loving sweet soul. The reason for her statement mainly focuses around my freckles.....the same freckles that she now has sprinkled lightly over the bridge of her little nose. I wondered if my freckle pattern did somehow resemble the "rustiness" that she spoke of.
And lo and behold there is a continuing pattern between myself as I age away.... and the crackle and speckles of rust as it ages objects slowly away!!

Perhaps I'll have this one blown up to frame in her room as a reminder of what she'll look like someday when she gets tired and rusty!!

Thank you to everyone for the awesome comments! You have taken the term "tired and rusty" and turned it into something that makes me now smile!

Georgia thanks for reminding me that I needed to do my "Twilight" review! Amazing books!!!!
