Thankful Thursday



Thankful today for old things that are new again.  This old farm gate, bought at an auction,  still has a lot of life left in it.  Complete with a rusty patina, it fits in quite well here at the farmette and, unlike the last one, I don't have to pick it up off of the ground to open it.  Life is good, I tell ya.....

"The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, and sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways."

Linking up with Teresa today...

  6. We have the exact same "pink" gate! It was the only one we were able to salvage from our farm when we bought it and it's still hanging, albeit getting a few rusted all the way through spots :-/.

  7. I always enjoy your pictures of the 'farmette' because we reared our children on a 30 acre farm and I miss those days.

  19. We've got one red panel, and the rest are all the cheaper aluminum, which I don't like at all. I'd like to have more of the heavier duty type ones.

  30. Love the quote. Only too true unfortunately. Farmers are a weird lot, huh? Who else would find joy in a well hung gate?
