Good Fences #67

A cute place in a nearby town.

 I like the gate, the rubber tire cut into a horse saddle swing, and, of course, the old bicycle.

The imperfections of the fence add to the charm.

\I bet I would like the people who live there. ;) Charming place with picket fence.

messymimi said...

And the white picket fence out front, in my mind, that never goes out of style. A lovely, lived in place! Not just existed in, but truly lived in.

Ramona said...

Picture perfect, it's like a picture out of a story book. Beautiful Theresa, thanks for sharing.

Good morning, I see a few different fences, I like the white picket fence with the bike. And in the background I see a pretty wreath on a gate. It is a cute place, great find. Enjoy your day! Happy 4th of July to you!

Picture postcard perfect, love the bicycle against the fence.
Thanks for hosting us all once again.

Looks like it's been a while since that bike was last ridden. :-)

Brian King said...

Very quaint! The bike definitely adds something - it looks like it's been left for that purpose!

Mary Cromer said...

Oh I do like that one blueish greenish fence gate! I thought about you and fences and gates yesterday morning. I was going to my daughters and saw a wild turkey fight right at a gate 2 had crossed. Will share another time. This week my 6 year blog is still showing.

I love white picket fences. I think this is your first one of these, isn't it? :-)

Lynne said...

White picket fence and an old bicycle will catch my eye too . . .

Now that is the epitome of the white picket fence!!!! :) The bicycle looks a little sad, though.... I think someone needs to fix that one up.
I've missed checking in on you....

Sandra said...

Mildred said...

I love places like this! Very charming. Wishing you a good day and happy 4th. I miss your daily posts.

Kathy said...

Don't we all want a cottage with a white picket fence? The fence and the bikek could use a coat of paint but it's a charming scene nevertheless.

Ms. A said...

My granddaughter had one of those fancy cut tire swings. They moved away a left it behind.

orchid Miyako said...

dearest Theresa; Wow, what a LOVELY and COZY looking house with beautiful and colorful fences♡♡♡ I love that horse saddle swing SO much and wish to enjoy swinging♪
Well, the old bicycle added the great touch for the scene; I only wish I could ride (having slow reflexes, and scared after the little slipping p:-)
Have a wonderful rest of the week!

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

Simple and serene living Laura Walker said...

Picket fences and old bikes are a favorite of mine. xo Laura

LV said...

It is nice to see a well kept home place. So many are neglected. With your camera skills, you make everything look nice. My grandparents home was a very special place to visit, but nothing left now.

bj said...

A sweet cottage...

Chandra Eswaran said...

Just the swing and the bicycle alone Mae this setup a superb entry to GF. What fond memories they bring back!
Thanks for hosting and have a great day, Theresa!

The old bike is a lovely accent. (Did I just use the word lovely?)

What a charming little place. I love all the little details and couldn't help thinking what a fun jigsaw puzzle this picture would make.

Siddhartha Joshi said...

I like the bicycle leaning against the fence...

Andrea Priebe said...

The only thing missing is Tom Sawyer white washing the fence ... the perfect rural scene. Nice and two fences to boot. The gate is cool, but it doesn't match ... hmmm

HOOTIN ANNI said...

PS....as I've slowed down on my blogging days also, I am now trying to catch up on YOUR posts. I'm saddened, but understanding of your choice to 'slow down' and take time for life beyond the computer/blog! You've had a huge task keeping up with all your visitors/commenting.

It's NOW TIME for Theresa!!!!

We love you, and will miss your bright smile and sweet disposition.

Anne Payne said...

I love how folks re-use, re-purpose and recycle old items!

Jeevan said...

Beautiful setting of house and fence – in my favorite picket! Very pretty, and the old cycle is another interesting object on shoot.

Felicia said...

cozy lil place. how clever to make a horse swing from a tire. the bike adds a nice touch too.

Giga said...

Imaginative decorations are at home and I like. Greetings.

ThreeOldKeys said...

Love it ... just junky enough, just "white picket fencey" enough.

I have no fence post (or rails) today but it will be fun to make my usual rounds visiting others.

don said...

I like the look of this home with the fine fence. The old bike adds to the picture's interest as does the vine covered part. NICE ONE.

Barb Brookbank said...

It's adorable - I'd love to have that place ...

Fireblossom said...

I like the big shade tree.

ladyfi said...

So very pretty!

bon bon said...

Such a quaint and welcoming little home. Lovely captures.

Not to be a downer, but there's a movement called Ghost Bikes where people who've lost a loved one via bike, paint it white and leave at the location of the accident as a memorial. Not sure if they meant to represent that here since they're usually at busy intersections, but it certainly adds an air of sadness.

Wayne said...

I that the fence is rustic feel and not perfect and straight. The vine is a nice touch as well. No need to drop by again, you've seen this one.

Stephanie said...

Wonderful composition. The bike is a added bonus. And the fact that it is a white picket fence. Love that gate! Have a great day!

Judy said...

I absolutely LOVE this...the house, fence, yard and that AWESOME bike!

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

☆ This is a lovely place ☆

thepoodleanddogblog said...

I'd love to meet the people who live there.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I couldn't love that sweet fence and their yard any more!!!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

The classic white picket fence. Never have seen a saddle swing and can't quite figure out how it was done, presumably cut from a single tire. Thanks for visiting me and thereby waking me to the fact that today is Thursday!

Kovács Miklós said...

Nice classic white fence especially with that very old bycicle. So beautiful atmosphere very liked it!

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful, classic fence it is indeed!! I love it!!

jeannettestgermain said...

This house looks like the American dream with a white picket fence:) The only thing that could be added is a swing hanging from one of the trees. Happy Fourth!

Ida said...

That is a charming little place. I really like that last shot that shows off the aqua gate, the swing and the bike so beautifully.

Uppal said...

A lot of green around. It has a healthy and fresh look.

Birdman said...

Why is it we just can't stop posting, even when we want to quit. It's an addiction? LOVE that bike shot.

photodoug said...

There is something about this white picket fence that says, "Happy Fourth of July". Thanks for sharing.

S. J. Qualls said...

That's the place the people in the books and movies dream about ...

Red said...

I wonder when the last time was when the bicycle was ridden?

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very romantic and charming house!

RedPat said...

It's like a nice movie set, Tex! I've missed your daily bit of Texas but I hope your new direction is going well.

Gail Dixon said...

It's so quaint, even with the askew picket. What a nifty idea cutting that tire into a swing/saddle. Brilliant! Thanks for hosting!!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I used to have a bike like that! It was a "Huffy Camaro" and weighed a bazillion pounds.

Linda said...

The white picket fence used to be what young people longed for.

Paul said...

Nice find! This cute little place has all the right ingredients... A white picket fence, bike leaning on the fence and a tire swing from the big old tree in the front yard.

Reminds me of "To kill a Mocking Bird" or "The Andy Griffiths Show"

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Oh, I could live there! ☺

Halcyon said...

Midmarsh John said...

I've always liked picket fences.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

A girl up near Youngstown, Ohio told me that she wanted the white picket fence kind of life. When I told her that I could go for that, she added that she also wanted a man, who would keep it painted. Sigh.

michaelswoodcraft said...

Love the bike!! :) We don't have picket fences in our area!

Nancy Chan said...

Wishing you a very Happy and Blessed Birthday, Theresa.

Karen Schurr said...

I love this shot, Theresa. Such an inviting place. That tire saddle is terrific, as well as the bike. Sitting on the porch with a bit of lemonade or cup of tea....the whole scene draws you in. Happy Birthday, and enjoy your 4th, Dear.
