Fences, Real or Imagined!

When you post photos of fences every week, you find yourself looking for them everywhere!

And if you live in a make believe world some all of the time, you see all kinds of interesting things.

These started off looking like this.

And overnight they popped open to the most beautiful shapes I’ve ever seen.

It made my imagination go wild and the next thing I knew, I saw fairies

and Hansel

and even a skunk.

Just to give you an idea of where I was playing!

(wonder what the neighbors thought!)

Please don’t kick me out, Tex. I’m just sure there was a fence around them all too!

And just so I don’t get thrown out of fairyland the Good Fences party, here’s a photo I took out the side window of my car this week.

Did i lose my comment?

Joyce Mayer said...

Throw you out? Why, because you took the Good Fences out of their box? HO says a fence can't be mushrooms, flower boarder, the sky's the limit and I for one love your "stepping out of the box". Keep going.....

Hugs

As for your neighbors - Diane who? Giggle.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Such cute pictures, Diane. I love how the first one made me do a double take....and then each following picture had a little surprise to find :) Those mushrooms are wonderful shapes.
Happy week.

Debby Ray said...

What a cute post, Diane. I have thought about the same thing when I see these mushrooms popping up...and I do like to imagine a fence here and there too when I don't see one :)

LV said...

Nicely done. It is refreshing seeing some things different. Keep it up.

Kathy said...

This is just charming! I love your little toadstool fence. The picture out of the window is good too.

Vee said...

That was fun! An umbrella fence!

Ida said...

You have a wonderful imagination. I enjoyed your little fairyland complete with a fence. - Also the nice farm scene at the end with it's fencing.

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

LOL, I'm sure Tex won't kick you out Diane, you're just thinking outside of the...er...fence!

Alex said...

Diane, hi! I love that you did that! So fun :)
Mushrooms are fascinating, aren't they?
Nice to meet you and your blog..I will be back.
Have a lovely day.

Margaret Adamson said...

This post made me smile. I like theway you thought 'out of the box'.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Diane,
Your "make believe world" looks like a very happy and creative place! I love your little fairy land mushroom village. Someday I'm going to join this fence party as I love seeing them too, and your shot of the fences with the sun on the field is gorgeous.

Jen @ The Light Laughed said...

Now fungi would be the last thing I thought would grow there...lol.

A friend told us that puff balls are edible..all of my childhood I've been told that they were deadly poisonous go figure...not that I plan on trying them.

Yes Diane...you have a very vivid imagination...lo.

Pamela Gordon said...

What a cute post Diane. I love the scene in the last photo. That tractor looks so small in that field. Enjoy the weekend.

Gina said...

Diane, I never thought of mushrooms as fences but it makes sense. We have mushrooms growing here and there and sometimes they look creepy. But if I imagine them fairy fences, maybe they won't creep me out so much!

Deborah Montgomery said...

I can't see a mushroom growing outdoors without thinking of fairies taking shelter underneath! How much fun!!
Have a wonderful weekend Diane. xo

Musings from Kim K. said...

You know I love my pixies and toadstools. Very creative! Have a wonderful weekend!

Jeannie Marie said...

A friend of mine just posted her fairy garden, I'm beginning to believe!

Linda H said...

Oh Diane, you are too funny! If there were fairies there, I'm sure there must have been fences too...

It must be nice for your fairies to have a little place to hide from the rain.

Kelly-Anne said...

Oh... Dearest Diane! How very special you are...I love how you use your imagination...not many do anymore, you know! It is truly so refreshing... In fact, you remind me of my precious grandmother...she is in her late sixties already but so young at heart that we have the best of times together discussing all our latest discoveries and projects...it is such fun! :). We are like two little girls when we get together - what everyone must think of us I don't know! Haha!
Aww! Loved your Good Fences this week!

Sending you lots of love and big hugs!
Kelly-Anne
