winter ice storm -- midwest
It's kind of scary when I start realizing I recognize vintage items from what seems my not so distant past. These gates were so handy.
Yep, these gates are now considered vintage. The rule for historic or vintage is at least 50 years old. The gates were not only handy they lasted forever. Thanks for the nice comment -- barbara
Lobely!!!!! I love old houses and I have "sittin" porch of my own!
Do folks in your area sit on their porches frequently. I realize that Ohio is really a neighbor of KY so I am thinking they might have similar traditions. Nice that you have a porch to sit on -- I do too and enjoy it mostly in the spring and fall. Thanks -- barbara
Indeed it is. One would not pass by without at least a greeting and a word.
RuneE -- That is right -- the local country custom is to stop and sit for a "spell."
You captured a gate with character and charm you have such a good eye for that. It is so easy to go through life and miss these simple things that are touched by human hands on a regular basis. Extra special in the throw away world of today to admire things built to last.
Grampy -- I appreciate your nice comment. You certainly have a marvelous blog that pays attention to detail in nature. Thanks -- barbara
