don't fence me in.....

fence…

a freestanding structure designed to restrict,
or prevent movement across a boundary

(still have a scar from getting hung up on this fencing)

and it’s come a long way from the farm fencing


pale-steel-gray-almost-invisible first barrier...
and an orange second barrier...
plus decorative blue barrier

Independence Hall Philadelphia


bright, bright colors to get your attention...


University of Rochester construction site


or in the case of the Hound—an Invisible Fence...




E is feeling a bit fenced in...








it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Cathy, sorry I've been out of touch lately. I so enjoy my visits to your creative place here. I've spent some time scrolling down through all these fabulous posts that I've missed. Don't know how you do all of this. I'm in awe of your talent. Love the "Life is a Hoot" design and all the wonderful monograms in Mt. Hope. Great eye you have!
Happy, Happy ~ sarah

I never really looked at fences except to see that they were in my way! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. xo

The traditional celebration, with kimono infants.

Japanese colored leaves, in heartwarming space.

The prayer for all peace.

Greetings.

'E' looks deliciously tendril-y to me - can't keep a tendril in~
