Gates and Fences . . .


Muskegon, Michigan

Jefferson Street

a street well known for its

beautiful, older, homes

built during the days of


booming lumber industry

many white picket, rod iron fences and gates

I happened to be in the neighborhood

and I took some pictures

(no help from hubs or neighbor this time)


linking up with

Theresa's Good Fences


Happy Fall Days My Friends
take some time to see the
changing color of the trees
the fall time fragrances of
freshly picked apples
pumpkin pie
clove and cinnamon
plus enjoy the sounds and sights of
marching bands
team cheers
referee whistles
football scrambles
fall is here

Hi Lynne, Happy Fall to you! Wonderful collection of fences and pretty homes. Enjoy your day!

Karen S. said...

Very lovely! I know that town because I was born and raised in Michigan!

White picket has always been a fav of mine. Odd that of the 6 fence types we have here on Lindenberry, white Picket is not one of them.
Happy Fall!

You always find a wonderful collection of homes to share with us. I'm definitely ready for fall activities. We've got Halloween decorating starting with our full-sized Halloween tree at our house.

I'd love a closer look at all of those beautiful houses beyond their fences and gates! What a gorgeous street that must be. -Jenn

Kim said...

White pickets are some of my favorites. They have such a sweet cottage feel...just my style!

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh what beautiful fences and homes! Such a pretty neighbourhood. Happy Fall to you Lynne. I hope it is a good one!

I think if I ever get to Muskegon I need to go to Jefferson street. I love places like that with beautiful old homes -- and great fences!

These older houses AND fences have so much character! Very nice photos for good fences!

You've chosen an important topic for your post: fences.
The right fence can improve the look of a house, give it character. Fences ensure privacy,set boundaries, enclose properties.
I've enjoyed looking at the fences presented in your post.

I was at Muskegon once - it was a ferry that left Milwaukee to Muskegon and back again. I was 16 and there was a polka band on board. I will always remember that trip with my dad. I didn't get to see much of the town but it has lovely houses and fences.

Missy George said...

Wow..I was thinking that your hubby had been very busy until you said that you did it on your own..Good girl ;)...Pretty fences

I've always loved white picket fences, Lynne, but in the more recent past I've found the beauty in wrought iron. Sad thing is I have a little 8 pound dog. Although she is a little overweight, I don't doubt she might squeeze through!! Silly worries.

Thank you so much for your recent visit and thoughtful words. And your compliments. I hope you visit again soon. I'd like to keep the conversation going about women, choices, hopes and dreams. It helps to share.

Your list is all of the things I love about fall as well. Summer was so stifling this year and fall makes me feel free once again. xo
Pretty fence photos today!

Looks like a wonderful place, I don't think I've ever been there.

(Unless it was when I was real little, that is.)

Kerin said...

Lynne, I just love all those houses and fences... each one of them is beautiful!
Nice to read your list of lovely Fall things. It is the best time of the year, in my humble opinion :)

Missed catching up with you, and I'm happy that things are slowing down, and I have time for blogging again..**smile**.

Have a lovely weekend, my friend.


Ida said...

You did a great job finding and photographing these lovely homes and their fences. I enjoyed them.

beautiful...i thought your hunk took them as he is always so willing to help you.
We have only 1 grand left in high school and she is in the band so we go to all the events close to home to support her.

Anita Johnson said...

I've been there and it is beautiful....just like your photos.
