I really like their entrance and the wagon wheels!

Ramona said...

What a great looking gate and wagon wheel fence. The horseshoes a great way to link it together.

Janey and Co. said...

That took a lot of welding! I like it.

Bruce Clark said...

Always love seeing the gates and names you post down there in Texas.

Sandra said...

I like it all and would love to go through the gate and wander and fall back in time

Mascha said...

Nice ironwork with the wheels.
Greetings from Germany

Georgette Sullins said...

This makes me think of the Lone Ranger and Tonto, Lewis and Clark...interesting combination of names on the gate.

messymimi said...

Oh, i want to go look around there! Are those gryphons on the tops of the fence posts?

eileeninmd said...

I like the entrance with the wheels and the name, cute! And the birds, are they hummers? Great fence shots! Thanks for hosting, enjoy your day!

Tanya Breese said...

i would shop there!

magnoliasntea said...

It doesn't get any better than "Tonto and Clark." Love that! Great entrance and wagon wheels.

Cranberry Morning said...

He must've gotten rid of Kemosabe.
Love the wheels!

DeniseinVA said...

A very interesting looking gate and fence and I would love to meet Tonto and Clark

Revrunner said...

Hmm, . . . Tonto. :-)

Jutta.K said...

A fanciful fence, originel and sure an unique far and wide.

EG CameraGirl said...

Quite fancy with those wagon wheels!

Cattails said...

Looks like an interesting place.

Gert said...

diane b said...

Love the wheels.

Beth said...

Like your fences! An interesting business! My first time to link - I do show some fences on my property, as well as our garden re-do. Thanks for hosting.

Margaret Adamson said...

Love the Wagon wheels and the entrance.

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

Tonto???.. The meaning of tonto en Spain is like a fool.. :-))) Regards..

Linda Kay said...

Love the name on the gate...Tonto and Clark.

Lynn said...

That does look cool:@)

Ileana said...

The wagon wheels are very nice.Thank you for hosting! ( Maya) :)

Jacquelineand.... said...

What an inventive fence and gate! It reminds me of a place I used to visit as a child with a yard full of bells, and a 'fence' made of ship's chain and anchors.

Julia said...

A very nice big gate with wheel embellishments.
Have a great rest of the week.
Hugs,
JB

Ni de Aqui, Ni de Alla said...

I would like to go shopping there not just to see what I can find, but I want to meet Tonto :)

William Kendall said...

Quite a name for the establishment!

Carletta said...

I like the name too!
You have to at least go browse and let us know what it's like. :)

DJan said...

It is a nice fence, all right. I especially like that brilliant blue Texas sky. :-)

Karen S. said...

It looks like an interesting place to wander about!

ashok said...

vintage stuff!

MarkD60 said...

Nice gate and fence. I think it's kinda funny though. Why have a gate and a fence? to keep something out or something in. But why have a big tall gate like that and a little short fence? Nobody'd try to get over the gate, when it'd be so easy to climb the fence!

Debbie said...

what a pretty junk yard!!!

RA Berks said...

Neat photos! I really like a neat gateway like that to places!

LV said...

I probably would have stopped to check this place out. Sounds like it could be the name of a good old fashion Western Cowboy show.

Birdman said...

Where's the Lone Ranger when you need him.? Got Tonto.

Mersad said...

The wheels add a nice touch! :D

I like their name and the gate and wheels.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love it! I would like to meet Tonto! heehee! Happy fences! Hugs, Diane

Pom Pom said...

I love these glimpses of your "neighborhood" TexWis!

ladyfi said...

Love the names on that fence!

Stephanie Faris said...

It doesn't sound like the kind of stuff I'd be interested in buying, but it makes for a great picture!

Amy Burzese said...

Very neat. I would have to stop.

Carola Bartz said...

I like the wagon wheels, too! It would be nice to have one in my garden and let some flowering vines climb up there.

Marie said...

I'd love to visit and look around! They have a great gate!

thirtysevenandcounting said...

I like the entrance gate. Looks like a fun place to spend a spare hour looking around. :)

Irma said...

These are wonderful fences, wagon wheels and the name on it is great.
From now on I can not respond for several days.
Then I can have a few days to respond.
And then also probably a day or 10 no anymore.
Probably not have internet anymore.

Andrea Priebe said...

Tonto would have drawn me right in there ... just to look, see. I grew up with Tonto and his Kemo Sabe, The Lone Ranger. I will always have my childhood crush on both of them :) Great fence, Theresa ... see all the thoughts you stimulated ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, wow!!!! that is so neat, only in Texas my friend. Blessings Francine.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

I like it too.

Lois said...

I wouldn't mind going in there and looking around for awhile!

Small City Scenes said...

I do like the entry.
Not even curious??
MB

happywonderer said...

That name would catch my eye for sure growing up with the Lone Ranger... I like the wheels!
Nice bright sky.

S. J. Qualls said...

Even the name is fascinating... How could you not be tempted to peek at the treasures within?
Oh, yes, pretty gate - are there eagles there on the upper corners?

Sally Crowe said...

Great shots! Love the name on the gate. :)

joeh said...

Now we know, he was Ranger Clark.

DougPhoto2009 said...

"Gettem up, Scout!" Thanks for sharing.

Dicky Bird said...

Wow, love it!

don said...

Tonto and Clark strike me as eye-catching names because they are so different than expected. fine shots of their interesting gate and fence.

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Me to really like this gate.
Horseshoes bring good luck. Here is a lot of horseshoes.
Greetings.

Icy BC said...

I like this grand entrance, especially the wheels!

A Quiet Corner said...

I like that fence too and I would love to browse there!...:)JP

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, They certainly have a lot of flair in their business signage and fencing, don't they? Many in Texas show their pride by spiffing up their entry gate. Have a wonderful day today!

Farm Girl said...

I totally love that name on that gate!! I would have to stop just for that. :)

Susan said...

That is a great entrance. I'd love to go there and look around!

Stephen Hayes said...

I like that their gate and fence feature what they sell.

Chandra said...

Theresa,
What a lovely addition to the meme!
Those wagon wheels on the fence are something.

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Bob Bushell said...

I'm quite sure you haven't shopped there, what a bunch of relics, ha ha.

DIMI said...

I like the entrance with the wheels and the name!So cool Tex!!
Dimi...

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very nice!

bailey-road.com said...

I like the entrance and the name too! Looks like a fun place to browse.

Sylvia K said...

Great fence for the day and it does look like a fun place to browse!!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I stop in places like that out of curiosity, but never buy anything. Sometimes, I take pictures!

Thanks for hosting good fences, by the way, TexWisGirl. Keeps me on my blogging toes!

Jeevan said...

Superb capture and neat looking fence and gate! I also liked the wheels arranged from big to small

barbara l. hale said...

I would want to stop in there simply because of the name. But the gate ain't bad either.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Pretty clever ironwork-- I almost missed noticing that horseshoes were used to join the wagon wheels. Certainly 100% "Texas!"

Miss Val's Creations said...

The wagon wheel details are a neat addition to the fence! I enjoy shopping these kind of places for little treasures as long as they are not too crowded. :)

Gail said...

I like the fence and I might be tempted to look.

Ida said...

Looks like a very interesting place to shop. You should stop by sometime and check it out. Great gate and the Wagon Wheels really are cool looking.

Lynne said...

I like the gate . . .
especially the Tonto & Clark.
Let us know if you stop in and find anything interesting . . .

Catherine said...

I wonder if this was named after the Lone Rangers horse?! Blessings dear. Cathrine

Black Jack's Carol said...

I love the straight lines and wheel shapes. Quite a geometry lesson in that photo :) Thanks for hosting, Theresa!

Jeanne said...

I think I would like to wander around in there for a bit and check out the junk. Interesting name.

Inger said...

A nice composition of round and straight. I hope to participate next week.

Robin Lamb said...

T, quite an elaborate gate for a junk yard!

RedPat said...

I like it too!

Melissa said...

The fence gives a tidy feel to it. Looks like an interesting place!

Leovi Leovi said...

Beautiful pictures, the entrance is very nice! Tonto in Spanish means foolish!

Mary Kirkland said...

That's a very interesting fence.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

I could easily spend the rest of any day shopping there.

Pantherka said...

Really beautiful gate.
Wheels on the fence look great.

Janina Lynet Rolin said...

mmm tonto?...so beautiful gate

pattisjarrett said...

That is a nice fence and gate, I like the wagon wheel detail, and the name, too.

Must have some good junk in there to put a good fence around it.

Ms. A said...

Our photos said...

Very nice fence !

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The entrance is rather tasteful for a used stuff store! Seems like they got their partnership wrong. Shouldnt it be Tonto and the Lone Ranger and/or Lewis and Clark ?


Did you know you have word verification back? At least when I'm commenting from my IPAd. Yesterday I used the PC and it wasn't there. Could that make any difference?

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Yeah, it's an awesome gate.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Oh, I really like this one! I will be back. I have nothing this week. I am off, as Bill was home. Still trying to get on track.

Stephanie said...

Love the name of the place too. Such great shots!

Terri said...

Interesting fencing and gate. I have to stay away from places like that..or leave my money at home.

Michelle said...

I would LOVE to stop and shop there!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Wheels, horseshoes and did I see Fleur-de-lys also? A French/Texan...
Hugs,
Mariette

Jen said...

I've never seen so many wagon wheels in one spot. Makes for a very interesting fence.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Yes the gate is awesome and so are the wheels. Hope your having a great day!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Oh, great fence and gate with wagon wheels♡♡♡

Thank you very much for hosting♪ I was a bit out of shape but getting better(^^;)

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

Randy said...

That's one busy fence.

The Queen Jester said...

That fence just screams "Texas".

Red said...

Rather odd that a sales business is behind a major fence.

edenhills said...

Those amazing fences and gates never cease to amaze me!

Linda said...

I'd be very tempted to go see what they have.

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

There are so many wagon wheels on that fence. It's clever the way they used the horseshoes. Great find. PS, you should go inside to see what they sell. Could be a fun place to look around!

Bethany Carson said...

It's very nice how they use the old wheels! Sounds like a place with a little bit of everything!

Mama Zen said...

Are those birds on the top? Cool!

Paul said...

Who would have known that the Lone Ranger's last name was Clark...

So this is what they did after the show was finished!

KB Bear said...

They sure do have a cool fence, perhaps made from the collectibles that they sell!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I didn't think 125 comments was enough so I came back. Really to say that on the PC that darn word verification isn't there. So it must be a security setting on my Apple and not on your end. Sorry!!!

Melody said...

Love those wagon wheels.

Halcyon said...

Love this one! The wagon wheels make it for me.

NatureFootstep said...

sometimes I wish we had fences like that. :)

Lynn said...

That is a pretty spectacular gate...pretty interesting looking place too (my link didn't work, my mistake tho:-)

Leo v.d. said...

very nice weekend desirable.

Laura. M said...

Good decoration has, Teresa

Nicki said...

Don't you just love a gate with personality and character - the quirkier the better. This is fun!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

What a great fence and gate. Love the name too. Looks like some interesting stuff inside!
Happy Weekend!

Justin Carfagnini said...

That's a great looking entrance!

Helma said...

If I see that link with fences then you can hardly believe that so many fences there:-)

Rory Bore said...

A very interesting fence! They are becoming one of my fave things to shoot. especially when there are unexpected "decorations" on the fence, or nearby.

sonia a. mascaro said...

I agree with you, I like the gate, the wagon wheels, and the horseshoes too!
