Ohhhhh,

The two gates would make great sides for an arbor with vines growing over and meeting at the top. I love wrought iron

And if you have the torch what about a little outside room with the railings and some tall supports for a cloth top of some sort. Kind of like a gazebo idea but right on the ground so climbing plants could use the railings as support. Or some of those really tall flowers.

You are so lucky. Congrats on your found stuff. I just love found stuff.

The railings might look good set against the walls in an outdoor setting; like wainscoating. Then some choice plants could ramble around over them to give a nice effect.

you could cut them and leand them agains large walls of buildings and use them as a trellis.

...but I really like the gazebo idea!! I would make two entrances tho.

Cindy,

first of all let me tell you this is a BEAUTIFUL house,what a beauty.

2nd.;wonderful idea to keep all of that and make something out of it.

i was thinking in the way of: lets say you have a wooden fence and your garden is along it you might just save from cutting it and lean it against the fence and plant climbing plants of some sort on it,seems to me it would be nice,i know that s what i would do if i found some.

dont have any thing for the two others though.

good luck!

Good luck with that - I wouldn't have a place for it if it came my way, but I'd keep it just in case somebody else in the neighbourhood needed it.

'Course, we pick each other's garbage big time on our block (s). After yard sales, there's always a boodle of stuff out in little boxes - stuff that doesn't get sold, gets turfed.

I had a nice lot of kids books last time.

I don't like to just put something out at the last minute and have it get picked up by the truck - I like to leave it a couple of days to give others a chance to take it home - and it's amazing what people will take home.

Jeff knows how to fix stuff - electronic stuff, so we get a lot of goodies - printers, radios, etc. I've brought home things I wouldn't dream of plugging in for fear of getting electrocuted, but he was trained and educated in that kind of thing and knows what's safe.

Computer monitors are often tossed out - sometimes there's very little wrong with them. A lot of people don't realize that. Jeff knows what to do with them. We've often been able to supply somebody when theirs goes down or make some money selling.
