Old Rusty Trucks

David and I are thinking about getting a truck. While we're going to be practical and look for a lightly used (Ford) truck, I can't help but look for an old rusty truck to sit under our one-day barn and hauling our one-day hay. A rusty blue would be the perfect decoration for the Fourth of July, adorned with a flag on the side and bunting on the tail gate. We'd fix some lemonade and watermelon, pull down the tailgate, and picnic in the field while we watch fireworks exploding in the sky.

But, on the other hand, an old red truck is great for Christmas. We'd take it to the mountains on a snowy day to get our Christmas Tree and pick up some extra greenery to decorate around the farm. The front of the truck would be decorated with a Christmas Wreath.

  1. If I was ever in the market for a truck, the wheels would be high heels! The bodywork would feature high heels :)


Always love to hear from you!
