Fences....



I am totally out of photos of cool fences or gates and, wanting to join TEX at her
GOOD FENCES
party, I went back years ago in my archives.

This was my
Pottery Barn
Christmas copycat wreath on my piece of vintage fencing.


A new fence at our olden house and my beautiful Rose of Sharon.
*

It's hard to even notice the fence in the background when
this adorable giraffes face was right up in my camera. 
He was so cute, I wanted to give him a kiss but upon
 closer inspection of his rubbery lips,
I changed my mind and just gave him a pat on that cute head.









A cute potting bench up against the olden fence that came down for the new one.


Mr. Sweet's old, rusted hammer, hanging between 2 knotholes on
a REALLY weathered fence.
One of my favorite photos....:)


I found this PINK fence and house on the net..
isn't it just dreamy...
and wouldn't it be downright FUN to live in such a fantasy place...? 







Here's a 
Lemon Lime drink, 
just for you...

and there's that olden, weathered fence behind it.
 **********
Sorry that I don't remember the recipe for this drink...

could be just ice water with lime slices...




"I never expected anyone to take care of me, but in my wildest dreams and juvenile yearnings, I wanted the house with the picket fence from June Allyson movies. I knew that was yearning like one yearns to fly."
...MAYA ANGELOU

  12. Know what caught my eye??? The old parking meter, in front of that adorable pink house/fence.

    Do they still have such parking meters today? Oh I suppose so. But I obviously haven't seen one in a long time. For it to catch my eye, like that. ,-)

    Happy summer hugs,
    Tessa

  18. That Christmas wreathing on the fence is simply gorgeous. I was going to say a fence for every season until I saw that pink house...not sure what season that would be...Valentine's Day maybe? Great photos. bj!

  19. You did a great job finding fences to share. The hammer on the fence is a great shot and that house you found is certainly different. Not exactly my "cup of tea" color wise but fun none the less.

  20. Jean I love all the fence pics. We have lots of fencing to add at the farm and one to finish that separates the dogs from the kids play area and I have lots of things to add to it to make it pretty. Thanks for the ideas and the drink looks so good.

  25. I remember the giraffe at the zoo in Columbia SC being very anti-people. Unless they had lettuce it would eat

  33. As much as I love the pink house and pink fence, I'm not sure if I'd want to live there. I love the giraffe though!!! My mushy red a giraffe when she was 1 and the thing wrapped its tongue around her hand at least 4 times!
