Our Trip to Denver

Denver, Pennsylvania, that is! Daughter and I were on a fabric expedition last Saturday. And though we didn't find everything we were looking for in the quilt stores, there were unexpected treasures to be discovered....

As I was driving, a long row of old iron gates caught my eye, and I had to bring the car to a screeching halt! We pulled in and found piles of old gates leaning against the front of a salvage store. I don't know about you, but I love the twists and curves and rosettes and rust and peeling paint, they are just so charming.

I hope these photos haven't bored you- I just find them so interesting. Inspiration can come from anywhere. A scroll here, a flower there, the color of a chipped rusty piece of old metal....

So then we walked INTO the store and our jaws about hit the floor...........
(stay tuned for next post!)


  1. I love these too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. There used to be a salvage shop in New Hope, Pa. I don't know if it's still there.

  3. Those gates are gorgeous.
