vintage gates


I love the history and intricate design found in big old iron gates. I have a few placed around my garden that I got at Urban Ore years ago, vines have intertwined through the curls and each one has a new layer of gorgeous turquoise patina. I keep the images for design inspiration, the patterns look beautiful on invitations! images: brooklyn museum (butterfly)

That butterfly is amazing. Just gorgeous! I have a special affinity to wrought iron from when Eric (boyfriend) was in blacksmithing for a couple semesters.
