More than 10 years ago I found this gate in an antique store in South Carolina while visiting Maren. I had it shipped home thinking I would use it in a new house we planned to build in St. George. Two years later I found 2 - 9 ft. lengths of old scalloped iron fencing at a local antique sale. I was very excited and envisioned exactly this placement with the stone pillars. Plans changed and we ended up in Fruit Heights but I knew when we picked out our lot that this was the place for my fence and gate. Today it was finally finished and I am thrilled with the results. It is rusty and may get paint at some point, but I don't mind the rusty look and the fence is charmingly crooked. It is the perfect entrance to my secret garden and waterfall.
