For the Love of Gates!

Lately I have been obsessed with gates. Tall gates, short gates, iron gates, wood gates—I notice them everywhere I go … they seem to be stalking me. Gates are the first thing guest see when visiting your home. They mark the entry path and seem to say ‘welcome–please come in.’ This is my first post, of what I know will be many, on gates.

Stunning iron gate by sculptor Andrew Crawford

Snowy entry gate in Tate Mountain Georgia–Love!

Mountain house gate designed by Rebecca Johnston and fabricated by Bill Durrett–The sun will be returning soon.

Charleston Style entry and gate–so very welcoming.

Love this side entry gate surrounded by boxwood

Regal front entry gates–love the 'Good Luck' Owls!

Such a welcoming side gate and fence–invitation please.

Welcome home! I love this arched arbor and gate.

This beautiful entry gate and garden just say 'welcome home.'

I hope you found a gate that inspires you among these gates, but if not, there will be many more to choose from soon. Have to go–the gates are calling me again.

xoxo, Lissy
