Like the one with the "Lone Star"

Good Morning, I guess painting is not one of their priority chores. They both are lovely entrances. And I always love the stars. I like the house in the first photo and the gate in the second shot. Great fence finds. Thanks for hosting, have a happy day!

Joe said...

This reminds me. I have a lot of stuff that needs painting!!!

A Quiet Corner said...

I often wondered if people with those kinds of fences hire someone "just to paint" all those fences...:)JP

Jo said...

Great fences, Theresa. I love this meme as I look for special fence options wherever I go! Have a great day. Jo

Cranberry Morning said...

I like a gateway? that's arched like the second one. So pretty.

EG CameraGirl said...

Well, the painting job must be tricky. Do people stand on the back of their pickups to reach the highest spots with their brushes? I like the bench in the second photo. It makes me think there might be kids who live there and wait for their school bus sitting on the bench.

Miss Val's Creations said...

I love those wagon wheel details!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

The fence can use painting; but still it's a pretty spread!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They need Tom Sawyer and a bucket of whitewash. The gate is pretty and the fence does what it needs to do though. Thank for hosting the party!!

Rose said...

I love them, even if they do need paint. That second gate is a beauty...and it even has a bench to sit and wait....

Phil Slade said...

Thanks for hosting the fence fest Theresa. I just joined in with a few gates and posts.

Gayle said...

Fence Painting - one of those 'gotta get to that' things.
Nice variety of fences.

Linley S said...

The second fence is inviting with it's bench seat and I just spotted the chair on the other side.

"E", ...Beth... , from VA. said...

i enjoy the 2nd one ... i am guessing they don't farm with that overtop ... i would think those trailers would not be able to go under that top on the fencing? i wonder??! height wise and all. ( :

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Good Morning. Great fence and entry shots. I think our Texas heat does a number on painted fences over time. Love the park bench near by too.
Have a great day! CM

Sandra said...

I wonder why they have a star on it? HEE HEE HEE... i kind of like the rusty fence.

DougPhoto2009 said...

Theresa, nice selection of fences. Appears the "Lone Star" area has had some rough weather. Thanks for sharing.

Mascha said...

I like the American fences with ornaments. Of course, with painting it's nicer...
Greetings from Germany

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex I would love to be sitting on the little bench beside the second gate:) Thanks for hosting my very first time joining in. Thank you:)Hug B

nookworm said...

The first fence would be mine. Hate painting and love rust. Texas has such interesting fences.

They're all lovely entrances.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Great fences- I sure wouldn't want to have to be the one to paint them, though..unless I had a sand blaster or something fierce to get all the old pain off. Think I would rather whitewash a board fence before these.

Debbie said...

i'm always thinkin' "boy, i sure would like to get a lil closer. and by closer, i mean up to the front door. and if they happen to invite me in, well, i'm goin' for it"!!!!!

very pretty selections this week, i guess you texans take that "lone star state" thing pretty seriously?!?!

Christine said...

Great fences especially the star and wheels inserted but its easy to let things slip, i suppose... time to get the paintbrushes out here too!

Karen S. said...

All nice views! My favorite is the first house with the third gate, that lone star is very special. My own driveway is beginning to look too much like photo number one! In places I have to mow down the center!

DJan said...

They are definitely Texas fences, with stars and arches, even if they need paint. :-)

messymimi said...

That maintenance is never ending, isn't it?

Jacquelineand.... said...

Like the 'Star Gate', but love the roofed bench... brilliant!

Linda Kay said...

Just love our Texas ranch land.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It would take a lot of paint for all the fences and gates in Texas! I like the rusty look but I know it will fall away at some point. Happy fences! Hugs, Diane

Gail said...

I always thought we would have a wonderful entry so some sort. At our place you cross a cattle guard and you're there.

Nice entries and fences.

Tanya Breese said...

i like the nice little bench!

Margaret Adamson said...

The star should go until they paint the fence!!!

Lynne said...

I like the little wire fence down low on the last picture too . . .
Thanks T for keeping this going . . .

Rusty isn't always great in real life, but it photographs very well :-)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That second fence is really nice with the wagon wheels in the design. I am wondering if the roofed bench is to help protect the kids waiting for a school bus?

Small City Scenes said...

I like the bench right at the gate.

The STAR of Texas is upon us.

Montanagirl said...

Ha - maybe painting isn't on their list of "to do's" !! Nice photos, Tex!!

Andrea Priebe said...

Hey ... if it would stop raining, they could paint their fence. All pretty nice fences, but the middle one wins just because it is painted nicely already :)

Andrea @ From The Sol

joeh said...

It amazes me that you never run out of fences...I guess it is a pretty big state.

Phyllis Oller said...

I kinda like the fences not painted , such beautiful country where you live! phyllis

Debby@Just Breathe said...

When I saw the first one I thought the same thing....needs a good painting! The second one looks like a lovely place to live.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I am currently reading a book that takes place in west Texas and the author describes the ranches with entries just like these...well maybe not so elaborate.

Back In Thyme Primitives said...

I love those entry gates. Thanks so much for hosting!

Susan said...

These are awesome, I really like the shaded bench. Great idea.

Birdman said...

Keep 'em simple for me like the first... and the one with the star. Know one thing Stopping and opening and closing the gate would get pretty old, pretty fast for me.

Ileana said...

Beautiful place !

Irma said...

I love the fence with the star.
Best regards, Irma

Penelope Postcards said...

Thin railings seem to look nice rusted or painted.

Sylvia K said...

Great fences for the day! I love the one with the star, too!! Hope you've had a great week!!

don said...

A fine post on gates. The outside weather takes its toll on all painted things. Please erase one of the Don's.

William Kendall said...

Good looking gates, even if a paint touch up is needed!

Their star is fading!

ladyfi said...

I like the star on the gate.

Felicia said...

the rust adds character though.

I like the bench under the little roof in the second image.

Julia said...

I like the second fence with the rustic sheltered bench.
Such a big gate for such a small house.
Have a nice day.
Hugs,
JB

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I completely understand why the fence is not painted, it would take a long time ...

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Love the second gate!

LV said...

You live in an area with so many interesting fences and homes. In the first one, looks like a gorgeous house.

Revrunner said...

Hmm, judging from that last shot, I'd say we've had a few escapees from here, too. :-)

Ida said...

You find some great fences. I sort of like the "rusty" look of the first fence. Painting it might take away from it's charm.
My favorite today though was the 2nd fence/gate.
I do love those Texas stars like the one in your third shot.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

I think a coat of paint might ruin that fence. I like the patina. Thanks for catching my post today-- getting ready to travel and will probably miss several memes for the next couple of weeks. Definitely will be away from computers next week, but I prepared a "robo-post" anyway.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

I love the variety you have been able to find. All the ones here are redwood and look alike.

Gosia k said...

In Poland we don't have those types of fences

Nancy's Notes said...

Look like wonderful country fences and gates! I'm partial to the one with the adorable bench, I'd love to sit and wait for company aka...grands!! Too fun!

Andy Wilson said...

Hey there! :)

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

It was interesting to see the shaded bench outside the gate. I had to wonder what purpose it served, though.

Jeevan said...

Beautiful curves in the second one... i also like that bench shelter. Though unpainted the fence doesn't look bad.

jeannettestgermain said...

maybe the fence is the last thing of the outside painting? I don't know because I never had a fence before, and the one we have know is of metal...

S. J. Qualls said...

Painting would help save them a lot of time re-fencing. Just saying ...

Nancy J said...

Photo #2, sit by yourself inside the gate, or together under the canopy and wait for the bus? maybe in older days the horse and dray. Lovely, and weathered wood, to me, looks special.

blogoratti said...

Really nice country fences, and nice photos!

Bob Bushell said...

LOVELY FENCES.

Pamela Gordon said...

Very attractive farms and fences. Thanks for hosting! Enjoy the weekend.
Pam

Karen said...

I like the rustic rusty look!

Red said...

The middle gate is a great creation. Somebody had a good eye.

barbara l. hale said...

Those are some good fences. I kind of like the rustic look.

Mildred said...

I like your fences/gates. I keep looking and hope to join in the fun soon.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Nice entry gates!

Primitive Stars said...

Call me crazy but I like the chippy paint look!! Oh that star is great too.Blessings Francine.

Elaine said...

Nice bunch of fences. I like the bench with the sunshade in front of the closed gate--not quite sure why it's there though.

RedPat said...

Painting a fence is not a fun job!

Halcyon said...

I like those fences with the wheels. They're so fancy!

Kovács Miklós said...

Seems for me these are very orderly farms. Liked all of them.

FOREST SNAPPER said...

My wife looks at me a bit odd when i point my camera at a fence while out on our walks, she thinks i'm cracking up. Thanks for hosting as i see that i'm not the only one to snap fences for your post.

Pantherka said...

Beautiful!
You are right with by painting ... :-)

Marie C said...

I really l;ike the second gate. The first one should definitely be painted as you say...the property is so pretty!

SweetMarie said...

I like the first place. It makes me think of the days of watching Dallas. LOL I really like the second gate with the wheels. A friend of mine owns a bbq restaurant in Orlando and it's Texas style. He's from Texas. He want me to create another logo for him and then make him t-shirts.

Our photos said...

Nice fences ! I love the first one !

Stephanie Faris said...

That last fence does need a coat of paint, but I love the star!

Janey and Co. said...

I think that I need to send my painter your way!

Lynn said...

I like the second one. And look, the painter has a place to sit to take a break:@)

Stephen Hayes said...

Someone could make a living as an itinerant gate painter.

edenhills said...

Great assortment of gates! Thanks for hosting each week.

Chandra Eswaran said...

I like the weathered look on the Texas Star.
Yup - the fence could use a fresh coat of paint.
Thanks for hosting and linking me up, Theresa!
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

That reminds me, we need to figure out about painting our porch! :-)

Spare Parts and Pics said...

I like that little make-shift shade area and old bench in the second photo. A nice place to stop and rest!

Stephanie said...

I love the old weathered look on fences. These are wonderful images!

Jeanne said...

What a great collection of fences. Every single week I think I am going to enter this and then something happens. one day soon!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Love that Texas Star motif. By the way, Whistlers on my blog tomorrow. Have a great Friday tomorrow!

Randy said...

I like that second one.

Grantham Lynn said...

Great fences. Glad I don't have to paint them. I'll try to get a post up tomorrow before the expire time. Thanks for the party. I really enjoy it. Have a good weekend.

pattisjarrett said...

All those wide-open spaces require a lot of fence--and paint. I can't imagine trying to keep it all looking nice. Where's Tom Sawyer when you need him?

Linda said...

Where is Tom Sawyer when you need him?

Paul said...

Painting is fun! The part I don't like is all the scraping, sanding and grinding that has to be done first!

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Great fences, Theresa, very nice photos!

Uppal said...

Great panoramic view and attractive gates!

Weekend-Windup said...

Looks great!

Ms. A said...

My daughter needs a cover and bench at the end of her driveway, where the kids wait for the bus! That's awesome!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Arlynda claims that I could do with some refurbishing. Sigh.

Liz said...

I'm always amazed at the number of large gates you have where you live! The first one could certainly do with a paint. Great post T.

John's Island said...

Congrats on Good Fences #64 ... 76 participants as of Friday morning!

Kathy said...

Love that second photo. I can see someone sitting on that bench in the shade with a glass of lemonade waiting for the mailman!

Betty Manousos said...

the one with the "lone star" is awesome!!

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

Love the star!!

Laura. M said...

Buenos hierros ;))

Brian King said...

The second gate is really cool! I haven't seen many in that oval shape.

Rory Bore said...

I love the one that arches - nice design.
And even before I read your tags, I thought - oh, needs some paint! ha
and that used to be my summer job on the farm - paint all the fences that needed touch ups.
my grandparents farm was over a 100 acres.
I had very busy summers, and very tanned and toned arms! :)

NatureFootstep said...

they all have their own design on the fences :)
