Welcome! - Today I'm joining in with Theresa from,
(The Run-a-Round Ranch Report) for GOOD FENCES.
Before I get started with today's entry I want to let everyone know who commented last week on the Wrought Iron fence that the fence was actually "Black" but the lighting cast a bluish tint to the fence. Many of you thought the fence was actually blue so I wanted to clear that up.
Today I am sharing a unique fence that borders an equally unique building here in town. It's an 1893 Queen Anne Victorian home called Sharpstein Manor and is now used as a home and also has several studio apartments as well.

What I love about this fence is the unusual "spider web" design of the iron.
For many years the house was decorated with tons of lights/decorations for holidays like Halloween and Christmas. In recent years though it became to much for the caretaker to do on his own so the last few years there have been no Christmas lights up which is really sad as it was very beautiful to see. You can visit this link to see pictures of the Christmas Lights.
Along with the cool spider web feature of the fence there are other great details such as the lion crest and fleur-de-lis decorations on top the brick columns.
My favorite feature though are the two Cherubs that border the entryway onto the grounds.
This photo was taken in October of last year. All other photos were taken this month.
I don't have a full view of the manor but found this photo of it and wanted to share it as well.
Please click on the link to view the photo. You won't be disappointed.
I hope you've enjoyed these fence shots. Don't forget to stop by Theresa's blog and check out all the other great fences.
