Good Fences #139

A few ways to 'dress up' an entrance...

1. Erect new fencing to frame your driveway,
adding some personal adornments (wheel, horseshoe, mail slot, "Pettigrew" family name sign, wooden duck, etc.)
 2. Paint the old fencing - paint it bright!
3. Keep that bright paint idea and add some personal adornments for whatever season you're in,
 in this case, it was autumn and Halloween.
These three places are all on one road within a mile of each other.

Here's the link-up.

1. Link in a post featuring a photo or photos of fences or gates.
2. Link back to Run*A*Round Ranch Report in your post or use the badge code to display the Good Fences button in your post that automatically links back here.
3. If time allows, please visit some of the other participants and comment on their shared posts.

Thank you!

Hello Tex, I like the wood fence and the wheel. Great finds. Thanks for hosting. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Christine said...

Nice new wooden fencing at the first place but I like the red railings better and full marks to the turquoise place for coordinating details in that colour!
Thanks again for hosting!

Brian King said...

The first two I'm definitely on board with! The third one, well, whatever floats your personal boat.

Tanya Breese said...

i like the long, pretty drives of the first two :)

Michelle said...

I do love that turquoise gate!!

Cranberry Morning said...

Fun finds. And all close . You start to wonder if there's something in the drinking water. :-) Enjoyed this.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

The bright colors and adornments keep it fun! I don't see that as much out here - but maybe because the homes are closer to the street

Giga said...

I like the first fence. Regards.

NatureFootstep said...

the orange color looks great IMO :)

Thanks for hosting :)

Anvilcloud said...

Upkeep and variety are good.

Mildred said...

Looks like the paint store has been busy!
Have a great day and thanks for hosting.

Marit Sønstebø said...

I like the wood fence too! :)

Suza said...

A wonderful place

I'll have mine up soon. It's a shame my old digital camera doesn't work.

Right now the one that does is on the tripod. Mr Cardinal is eating seeds off the platter, and Mrs. Cardinal is sitting on the camera.

DJan said...

So cheerful! I love the bright colors, especially the Pettigrew fence. :-)

Jutta.K said...

It is always interesting to see how many different fences exist!
I also have a contribution to your project

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

The first two are nice and neat; the third, not so much. I smiled when I saw the ad for Fence Installers at the end of this post.

Lynne said...

Fun post . . .
Abit of "color and adornment" spices things up a bit!

stardust said...

Variety is a spice. Each fence is nice but I like the simple old one painted in red.

Sandra said...

these are among the most colorful fences of all time. I like them all.. even the aqua gate

Gail said...

My gates are more like the third.

Have a blessed weekend.

Pom Pom said...

You Texans definitely have a lot of variety when it comes to fences! We need side fences and we about fell over when we got estimates. Ack! Have a great day, good TexWis.

Debbie said...

wow - all on the same street, i can only dream about that!!

i like the first fence but it seems very "non-texas like"!! and the blue, no comment except i guess they will never hit it in error!!

joeh said...

I like they matched the fence, bucket and mailbox color. I suspect they had that paint lest over from a project inside the fence.

GreenComotion said...

The first two shots are awesome with the blue sky.
Thanks for hosting.
Have a Happy Day, Theresa.
Peace :)

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Nice variety! The turquoise color reminds me of our home in New Mexico. When it was new (earthy stucco color) and we chose paint colors we liked turquoise for the trim, but once some of it was applied it was much too bright and garish. We told the painter to cover it with forest green and in the meantime got a visit from the Homeowners Association saying that several neighbors had objected to the color. They were happy to know that we agreed with them. Great color for jewelry and accenting a gate!

Felicia said...

you have very colorful neighbors.

Gayle - venturesinphotos said...

Fenced but open to visitors--nice.

nookworm said...

I don't understand why there are so many fences and gates around homes. Privacy? Boundaries? Decorations? Competition? Art? We don't have much around here except to keep livestock in. It must be a Texas thing.

Bev said...

HAHA... loved this!!!...

DougPhoto2009 said...

Theresa, flashy colors. Thanks for sharing.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I'm baaaaack!

Yes, your neighbors have some fine fencing for viewing!

Small City Scenes said...

Good finds and I guess whatever fence/gate you have it is your fence/gate and you are right it is a frame for your driveway

Miss Val's Creations said...

Great fences. I am all about painting anything so those painted fences are up my alley!

Karen S. said...

I so enjoy seeing the designs and creations of other folks, and what is important or special to them. Everyone has their own special style! Great selections, thanks for sharing them.

don said...

A fine post of these noval entrance fences and gates. They do this part of the ranch so much better there than around here.

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Not able to post this as my pc has died. I like the blue gate

Peter

Rose said...

I like seeing fences decorated...and personality added to them.

matti juhani niilola said...

Hi. The red fence is awesome. Shown really well and attract attention.

Debby Ray said...

They are all quite eye catching, that's for sure :)

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

The first fence is very nice.
Turquoise fence is beautiful, colorful.
Greetings from Poland.

S. J. Qualls said...

Oh, boy, I'd really like that wooden fence! Maybe the dogs wouldn't see so much at night and stop barking.

Sally said...

Now, those are some interesting colors to say the least. Great photos are always, sweet T.

xoxo

Jan said...

What an interesting drive you have.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

The turquoise gate definitely livens it up!

Red said...

I like the very neat fence in the second photo.

Wayne said...

Not crazy about the first fence. The last one is a little too blue, the red one is 'just right'.

Robin Lamb said...

T, neat! I wonder sometimes if people have heard the saying "less is more," but I guess it comes down to whatever turns your crank!

Helma said...

Particular that these three areas with fences so close together.
The difference in fencing is very big on nice and tight and fallen into a bit rusty.
Beautiful imaged :-)

Ginny Garza said...

I like the old fencing painted bright! Nice and neat and still doesn't block the beautiful view. Wide and open spaces!

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Hahaha! That is some variety... and festive too! Nothing like the country!

RedPat said...

Show some of your personality! Three very different fences, Tex! ;-)

Stephen Hayes said...

It's fascinating how unique each gate is.

Happyone said...

That last one doesn't seem very welcoming. : )

Ruth Kelly said...

I always like a nice crisp paint job, myself. I remember painting my grandparents white picket fence as a teenager and one year I painted the chicken coop white.

jeannettestgermain said...

I can see having lived in the city for so long definitely has shaped my taste. The first one is beautiful! With the second one, I don't know what to say ... Thanks for hosting Teresa!

It's me said...

Happy weekend....love Ria x ❤️

Ela said...

The first fence is beautiful !

So much fun! You have great neighbors.

I like the red one, very classy:@)

William Kendall said...

That shade of blue is very unusual!

Lowcarb team member said...

Good to see all of these ...
The turquoise blue one does stand out doesn't it!

All the best Jan

Brk Trt said...

I like the stockade type fence. We had one similar when I was a kid.

Revrunner said...

Abandoned car, skull, skeleton, police tape--my kind of place. :-)

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Practical and festive! I like that! You find such great things to share. I need to get out more. Hugs!

edenhills said...

Love the skull in that last shot!

SweetMarie said...

I like the red fence, color and style. :) what is that just behind the fence? a cage of some type?

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh my, so many different fences!

Linda said...

Fun colors! Hope you can show us what they do for Christmas.

Lady Fi said...

I like the bright red of the two top fences.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Theresa - I think I prefer the middle one ... it's the simplest - cheers Hilary

Bob Bushell said...

There are good fences, and you have found one.

Ms. A said...

That's one way to keep it interesting!

Janey and Co. said...

That turquoise would help you find your gate, for sure!

Francisco Manuel Carrajola Oliveira said...

Magnificas e belas fotografias, gostei bastante.
Um abraço e bom fim-de-semana.

Pietro Brosio said...

Beautiful fences, so interesting!

Celestina Marie said...

Looks like aqua is popping up everywhere. These are some standout special fences. Have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving soon.

Nancy Chan said...

I like the 1st and 2nd fences. Have a wonderful day!

Tamago said...

Love the 2nd fence. Looks nice and bright in red!

Terry and Linda said...

You always find the coolest fences!

Linda

Pantherka said...

Beautiful place.
Your comments always get super :-)

Primitive Stars said...

Love the fence, even the blue gate.Blessings Francine.

Midmarsh John said...

I don't normally do garish but I love that blue gate.

magnoliasntea said...

Love those painted fences. And we have a couple that are starting to rust, too. I don't think I'll be able to get a way with a bright color though. I may have to paint when my husband is not around. :)

dhiru guri said...

Nice variety of fences. Wonderful captures.

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, I like the pics and the ideas for fixing up. My favorite is the simple, but bright, red fence. Wishing you a fine weekend down there in the Lone Star State!

Gert said...

What a neat row of unique fences!

mick said...

I like the bright green gate but it looks as if it is barely hanging on!!

Ida said...

My favorite is the first fence. Although I do like the bright colors of the other two fences/gates. Also I think it's fun when people decorate for the seasons.

Breathtaking said...

Hello Theresa!:) Three interesting gates, but I like the wooden one with the small personal details, and the red one the best.I didn't have a gate post ready this week, but I'll participate next week. Enjoy your weekend whatever you decide to do.:)

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; I love the way you categorize to 'dress up' an entrance(♡^.^♡) I think fence with turquoise color is kind of rare in Japan, but I like it☆☆☆

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Paul said...

Amazing the changes one can effect with just a bucket of brightly colored paint and a bit of imagination...

Love that turquoise gate, it's a real eye catcher!

Jeevan said...

The bright colors are pretty eye catching… wonder the first one is really rusty or painting alike!

Maggid said...

Thank You for All You Do.
Be Well & Happy,
(please)
