I thought the best way to introduce you to my new blog is to welcome you in through one of my garden gates. I found this iron fence in Corpus Christi, Texas, on one of my many adventures.  This is one of many gates I purchased from a man who brought these wonderful architectural treasures back from a trip to Egypt. I think they were originally used as window safety covers for a large mansion.  I saw them as  garden courtyard embellishments and gates, as well as great trellis homes for honeysuckle, jasmine and clematis.

The gate in the picture needed a Texas Touch.  I took an antique spur, attached it to my gate post and yeehaw..the coolest latch ever.

So, come on in, sit a spell and let's get acquainted.  In the future, I will be posting some neat DIY projects with easy instructions.  I will be sharing finished projects as well and I would love to hear all about your Rusty Dusty finds, projects and adventures. Now finish your cold sweet tea and let's have some fun.


  1. Welcome all my old buddies and all my new best buds.

  2. Love the gate... sounds like you live in the country.. have to come visit one of these days.. :) We are coming your way in Oct.. Becky to a Dallas FB game for her BD.. Maybe I'll get there before that. TFS.
