Wrought Iron

I enjoy having different wrought iron pieces, fencing and old garden gates and using them in my garden. I have one garden gate that came from an old architectural salvage warehouse in New Orleans. I ask the owner if he could say it came from a brothel. He said if I bought it he would say anything I wanted him to.We have several large fence pieces from when my husband helped with a landscaping job and these were leftover pieces that they didn't want. They are pre-civil war because it was before welding. We have used them in our garden and he even made a bed with them. 
    Another piece came from a flea market in Canton Tx. It was from an old cemetery. I remember Glen had to ride home with his seat and it poking him in the back. I was fine on my side. I don't what his problem was. Only a 6 hour trip.

  1. Welcome!

    I like the black and white photo. Lots of texture and pattern.

    Please, in future, post a link direct to your B&W entry, not just to your blog.

  5. Thanks all. I am still learning. I am not in the same league as 7MSN. It is my favorite. But I am enjoying this.
