Cool Gate

I was wandering along a laneway/alley in the Annex, as is my habit, when I spotted this very cool gate protecting a parking spot. The gate has your normal chain link fencing but sections have been cut out and metal wire inserted in patterns that reminds me of crocheting giving the whole thing the look of an old-fashioned doily, don't you think? I love it but have no idea who you could hire to do such a thing!

You're right Red, that's the first thing that hit me - crocheting. That is one great chain-link fence!

I agree. It does have that lacey-affect.

Very clever, who knew a chain link fence could look so good!

Oooh, I love it. We have chain link in the back yard, and I had no idea it could be art.

You do find some interesting artwork. That
could catch on in a big way - very pretty.

Quite artsy! I like that it's unique.

It looks very much like something that Lois Anne's grandmother would have crocheted. It's quite beautiful.

Re the blog: Whenever you get the time. Good luck with your tax returns!

Have a great weekend.

Love, love, love this. What a delightful way to turn a ordinary, not real attractive barrier into something to enjoy. I agree it looks like crochet, it would be fun to know how it was done.

Crocheting was my first thought too!

Mo said...

At first glance i thought it was lace.

Unique and kinda funny.

This is so much nicer than a chain link fence.

Randy said...
