Eclectic Fence


I had heard about a cool fence in the Cedarvale neighbourhood and finally went looking for it this week only to discover a wonderful funky installation running along the front of a rather normal-looking house. This is just 1 section of the fence which has all manner of things welded and attached to it - door knobs, chains, springs, cups, t-pot, child's mug with name engraved, taps, etc. One can only imagine what the neighbours thought at first but most of the things now have a nice soft patina of rust which makes the whole thing quite pleasant! Enlarge for a better look.

This is the coolest fence I've ever seen!
It's fun to dicover the things attached to it! :)

This is great, but I'd wonder about the neighbours, too. Thank goodness for rust, although the child's mug, if silver, won't rust, but it will turn black.

Can you get rid of Rambo's comment above please? I find it objectionable even though I'm not an American woman!

True folk art. If I were the neighbor, at first I would be horrified but soon I would come to love and brag about it.

This is more like a work of art Red, how fantastic and you're right, now that it's a bit older and rusty it looks so good especially in contrast to that lush green grass.
The stories were English, Enid Blyton was such a prolific writer of childrens books, I liken her to a storyteller along the lines of JK Rowling.
