Mine that I received for Christmas is currently in my garden, out my kitchen window, with sweet peas galore.
But how often do you see the actual fence that goes with this gate? It's difficult to locate to buy new and even harder to find old and vintage. Something like this is what I'm talking about.
For my birthday (wow, I do manage to keep bring that up!) tracked down this fencing in the Seattle area... which meant picking it up instead of having it shipped... which as you may have guessed costs and arm AND a couple of legs!
Our planned fence is going to enclose our veggie garden, more for looks than anything, well except it will keep our two labs out of the carrots.
My husband has been researching the best way to "put it up". He's a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to building, actually now that I think of it, he's that way about pretty much anything. We've driven around local "older" neighborhoods thinking someone would have one, nope. We've been scouring the Internet for photos... not much out there. We did find a website in Australia that shows this style of fence put up with wood posts and cross pieces... but we'd like to see other options as well.
Much to my surprise I saw a picture on this gal's blog of THE fence... I left a comment to ask about getting some photos and ironically they had just taken it down that weekend! Talk about poor timing for me! So, my question to you all is if you or someone you know has this style of fencing, even a wee bit in a cottagey garden... and would you be willing to share any pictures with me? So I can get my perfectionist moving on my fence before winter!
Hope your weekend is fabulous, I'm enjoying another picture perfect, Pacific Northwest weekend...
