Rebuilding - Good Fences

Once upon a time there was a sturdy fence,
but not all good fences live a long fencing life.
They move on to other things.



Some fences aren't as pretty as others
but they serve a worthy purpose. 




On the life of a fence, serving is never ending.




Often those fine serving fences become




Chairs!




and artful picture pieces!





How incredibly constructive to discover a fun wooden-build-your-own wooden fence or whatever waiting just for you!






It's true very often many fences get lost in the background.






But a fence that becomes a chair in a city park lives on to show off!


"Everything vanishes around me, 
and works are born as if out of the void. 
Ripe graphic fruits fall off. 
My hand has become
 the obedient instrument of a remote will." 
Paul Klee
artist

So explains the life of many a good fences, wouldn't you agree?


My hubby has a pile of sturdy wood fencing his sister begged him to take down.  She wanted a clear view without fencing.  So now it sits here in a heap waiting to be something.  Hopefully, I'll be able to share it here (someday) in a new life form! We'll see.

Hello Karen1:) Such cute photos of your grandchildren having fun. That huge chair is fun too, and those smooth tree trunks and branches
were a fantastic find,..what a fabulous fence they would make. Great fence post Karen.
