I am linking this post to Kimbas linky party over at A Soft Place To Land When we bought our Casa here in The Land Of Enchantment a few years ago, it did not have this courtyard. Luckily I have a hubby who can fix or build anything, so he added it on last summer! I love my little courtyard/ garden and have been trying to make it my little desert oasis. We have been searching for a gate for some time, and finally found a little shop that made this custom gate for us!
Here is how she looked when they dropped her off.
Hubby beat her up a bit to give her some charm.
and used a grinder to give her some character.
The girls helped him stain her.
and then hubby added the hardware.
Isn't she a beauty? Excuse our landscape (or lack there of) We live out in the middle of nowhere ya know!
Here she is lit up at night. I still haven't found the perfect pottery to put in my niches. But I think I love her!
Lets give a cheer for my beautiful new courtyard/garden gate !!!!!! Yea gate!
We are three sisters who grew up in the Land of Enchantment and now live thousands of miles apart. This is one of our means of sharing our enchanting bond of sisterhood. Come take a glimpse into how we love to make ordinary things extraordinary and delight in the little things.
