A fun new linky party - Grey Dey Thursdey!

It seems I am not the only one who has noticed that grey is becoming rather popular. Some of my most favourite blogs have featured grey lately. So it is really lovely to see that PETITE MICHELLE LOUISE has started a new weekly linky party, GREY DEY THURSDEY.

It just so happened that I had found a few grey things at the last brocante I went to, which was yesterday, on THURSDAY. How is that for a coincidence?

First off,  I found a little stack of these wonderful old plain postcards from 1901. They had greyed with age, with just the tiniest hint of colour, and the printed stamp is a lovely deep grey. The beautiful handwriting had also faded to a deep grey from the original black ink -

I also found a bunch of little keys. Rather than going rusty, they had developed this grey bloom all over -

Two steely grey oil cans -

That was it, as far as GREY is concerned. The rest of yesterday's finds were creamy, white and lacy ;-).

I still haven't had a chance to post the photos from last weekend's 2-day town festival. I will do that this weekend, promise!

Until then, toodlepip and thank you so much for visiting.

Such a beautiful grey post!
I never thought I would have gone ga ga over keys – but I have and these are wonderful Liz!
They're such an unusual shape I wonder what they were used for!

Oh how cool Liz, I didn't know Michele had started a new post party.
Grey really is "in" right now. I'm using more and more of it in my faux painting, kind of a tanish grey.
Great keys.
Sorry I have'nt been over for a bit, catching up now AGAIN. LOL
Hugs Lynn

I love all your "greyness", it is beautiful!
I will have to see if I can find some greys around here! We just painted the girl's bedroom is shaping up quite nicely! With some really great thrift store finds it will be lovely!Now that my home is no long filled with so many people, I hope to get some time to create, finishing the bedrooms of course....
Ta ta!
