tarnished and worn

frayed and rusted

there is beauty in the brokenness.

I've always loved the shabby chic, worn, primitive look. Maybe it's because I like to imagine the story behind each piece. Every thing has a story. A history. And those signs of wear are the evidence that they were well loved.

It's in the brokenness that beauty is found.

It's in the hardships that we are made stronger.

"But He knows the way that I take; 
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold." 
Job 23:10
