Hop In for Good Fences!

Hop in the car and we’ll drive to the bookstore and see how many fences we see on the way.

I can ‘safely’ take photos and drive at the same time…

(are you car sick yet?)

The prettiest fences are around this beautiful horse farm.

We’ll try to park by a fence, too.

Here we are!

Time to browse!

I used to be so tempted by the magazines but now I get more ideas and inspiration from my favorite blogs.

It’s still fun to look though, isn’t it?

(until you look up and get blinded by the sun! lol)

I’m joining Tex for the

My favorite picture is the last one with the beautiful sunshine. We have had rain all week. I am ready to see the sun!! Maybe I should move to Sunny Florida!!

Morning, oh those puffy white clouds and blue sky are so beautiful. Love to browse the magazines and books there too. Fun post, Francine.

Fun fences! I bet your trip to the store was more fun than usual, too.

Diane said...

What a sky in that first photo-- wow!

Prairie Patch Quilts said...

I agree with you; blogs are so inspirational. But, it is still always exciting to go to a book store and look at the magazine rack. Your drive was so pretty. Thanks for taking us along!

Linda Kay said...

So happy to see Mr. Sun pop out this morning after so many days of gloomy, cloudy weather. Thanks for taking us along on the ride...and B & N...Love to just browse and enjoy a Starbucks.

Debby Ray said...

Oh...that first pic of those fluffy clouds...so pretty!!

Kathy said...

Looks like a beautiful day there. So nice to see the sun here after all our gray and snowy days. Love the fence at that horse farm. So pretty.

Ana said...

Absolutely beautiful pictures. The sky is a wonderful blue color and the clouds seem like they are close enough to touch. Just gorgeous....Oh and the fences were great too :-)

Hugs,
❤️Ana

Oh your blue skies are so pretty. It's raining here again. Blah.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Oh indeed I am very car sick. Hee hee. I find that pinterest and the internet and blogs give me all the projects that I need, plus I found that several years the magazines have mostly gone to super simple (and mostly ugly and useless) patterns, trying to get their subscribers to think that they were achieving something good when it was just repeats and ugly. If I don't like a project on the internet I can just leave it - and not have to pay money - plus clutter up my house with magazines - hurray for the internet. Lovely fence photos - and the sky is beautiful my friend.

Breathtaking said...

Hello!:) The pictures of the roadside fences are fun! The white fence is pretty too.Have a good magazine read!:)

Shug said...

I enjoyed the trip and also enjoyed all the fences.... Wow...can you believe how expensive magazines have become? I could be addicted to them...but with the price like it is...I just don't buy.
Hope you have a sun filled evening.

Jeannie Marie said...

Blogging and pinterest have made magazines useless for me. Who has the time for both?

Julie's Lifestyle said...

Hi Diane, you always make me smile when I visit your blog and thanks for that. What a nice drive looking at the fences. Yiu went to my favorite book store. I LOVE you looking at the magazines too. I love that last photo too. Have a nice end of the week.

Ida said...

I'm guessing you really weren't snapping pictures while driving (at least I hope you weren't) Those angles in the first couple of shots were great and did make me feel a little dizzy. You saw some nice fences. Hope you had fun at the book store, sadly ours closed down about a year ago.

Sarah Beth said...

That was a fun little drive! Except for the wobbly part -- I'm feeling a bit wobbly myself now... LOL!
I could get lost in all the magazines if I didn't watch myself closely!

ann said...

Nothing like a road trip. I had a terrible magazine habit, but blogging has helped to break the habit. I'd be tempeted to buy the Prims mag. Looks fun.

janiceadcock said...

Thanks for the ride along to the book store. Ours is just a nice walk away and no fences.

BeachGypsy said...

Have been a lifelong magazine junkie and still subscribe to my favorites. Some of those new ones tho.....9.99 and ten or twelve dollars for a magazine??!!....no way. That is just rediculous

Vicky Weaver said...

HA! Thankfully I don't get car sick! The kids have already started swimming here! We went right from Fall to Summer again!!

I don't buy magazines anymore. Who needs them with Pinterest? And they cost so much!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

LOL, don't let a police man catch you driving and snapping Diane! Lovely sunshine, enjoy!

NanaDiana said...

Love that last picture- but I love all your fences! xo Diana

Marie said...

Fun post!

Vee said...

Oh I thought we were counting those beautiful clouds! Oh I agree, magazines hold very little sway with me these days. Blogs...Pinterest...I don't have to pay to read articles that offend or look at advertising unless I choose. Still, I would love to find a good magazine with quality and substance. Know of any?

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I can't see the fences for the clouds! They are gorgeous. I get some magazines, free subscriptions, but they seldom get read. I'm like you and would rather read blogs!
Have a nice Friday and weekend.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love you pretty photos, Diane! I visit the library once a week and always borrow a few magazines to look through --most often cooking magazines.I also load up on paperback books that have been donated--I buy them at a dollar a piece and then pass them on to my daughter, and in-laws.

Doreen@househoneys said...

Magazines are sooooo expensive, and I don't like clutter, but I will admit they're fun to look through now and again.

Looks like you're getting some lovely weather Diane!

Montanagirl said...

Hi my friend. Beautiful skies, and topsy-turvy roads: LOVE it!!

Margaret Adamson said...

Blue skies and fluffy clouds - gorgeous.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I always thought you were the passenger when you took all your pretty photos. Be careful:-) I could spend hours browsing all the magazines in there. Too bad our B & N closed last year.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, I enjoyed looking at those clouds very much. It looks like it was a pretty sky that day. Yes, I love magazines too, but the other day I was at the store and wanted to get a cottage magazine and it was $10.00 so I put it back. What happened to the $2.00 magazines? I can get the same inspiration from my blog friends, like you.

Have a nice weekend.

Gypsy Heart said...

Beautiful blue skies, puffy clouds and the sun ~ what more could you ask for? We haven't had much of either lately.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Same with me! I have stacks of magazines at home that are 'keepers' but I never open them, it's all about the blogs.
But I still wouldn't mind browsing that stack :-)

You had a gorgeous day in which to go to the bookstore and take photos of fences along the way!

Linda R said...

You had me laughing with this post. Awesome shots and no I didn't even get car sick..

Hugs, Linda

Becca said...

Beautiful! Those clouds are amazing! I love going to B&N and looking at that section of magazines!

Felicia said...

neat post Diane, pretty fences. Thanks for the drive.

suziqu's thread works said...

Fabulous properties to view!
And imagine being able to drive to Barnes and Noble bookshop!
But yes I agree there is more than enough inspiration from our favorite blogs these days.
Thanks for your sweet visit Diane!
x Suzy

Beedeebabee said...

What a beautiful day for a drive to the bookstore. :) That sky is gorgeous with all those fluffy white clouds...pretty fences too! xo

Linda H said...

Lovely fences, and love the blue skies! I too love browsing magazines, but don't often buy unless there is something I really really want. I find the quilting mags disappointing these days -so many patterns are repeated, it seems.

Sam I Am...... said...

I miss B&N so much! The closest is 2 hours away. I'm like you, I don't buy magazines anymore as between blogs and Pinterest who needs them but there are a few that are from the Uk and Australia that I love. Mollie Makes and I think it's Homesewn from Australia but they have several...Patchwork and more. They are wonderful. Lucky you!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Drive carefully! I see fences that I can't take pictures of when I'm driving. I'm not as talented at multitasking as you are, I can barely walk and talk at the same time ))

Such pretty country, thank you for sharing it!
