Beadazzled

This is one way to dress up a chain-link fence. Mardi Gras beads year-round! Spotted this as we were leaving Breaux Bridge, LA last weekend. This old house sits on the main drag around the corner from the antique district. I wouldn't do this to my home, but I think it's super cool!

The beads would not look as good anywhere else other than Louisiana. :)

It's hard to imagine that it doesn't get vandalized.

Your camera and lens combo do wonders for you. I had thought you would be into a newer camera because of the clarity that you get, so good on ya for doing so well with an older model.

It's definitely different. Nice shooting Gail.

You are correct....it is very super cool. Great captures.

Amy Burzese said...

I wouldn't do it either, but this is wonderful and really gorgeous. I guess it speaks to the importance of being different, bold, and not worrying about what others think.

GREAT beaded fence!! Put a big smile on my face!!
When we were in NO over spring break - soon after mardi gras- I was amazed at all the beads in the trees along St. Charles!! Assuming the beads fall out eventually - but really kinda neat!! Rather Unique!!

Rose said...

Oh, my! I think I will long remember this. I love it.

Helma said...

I would not do to my house, but I think it's great to see. You just have to stand up as to dress lol ...... this

Ela said...

Very original fence :)

barbara l. hale said...

I love that!! Fence jewelry. It makes a very cool texture.

Ida said...

Super spot. What a rainbow of color adorns that fence. I loved the shot with the house behind it.

Ruth Kelly said...

How fun to make a show piece of the fence! That poor house, though, sure does need a paint job.

LV said...

That is a lot of beads. Think of the the time it took to do this. Never saw anything like it. Most interesting.

Linda R said...

That looks so cool.. But I don't think I would do that to my fence either.

Hugs~

Beate said...

I wouldn't do it to my house either, but this is an awesome idea! I love the way it looks, it's fascinating and very unique :)

Willow said...

How cool is that for an interesting fence ~ indeed !

Shug said...

Very Interesting!! I actually think this is very NEAT. Wonder how they keep folks from taking their beads? Glad you posted this for me to see!!

I so enjoy seeing all the interesting things that your state has to offer..

Have a good evening...

One way to dress up a chain link fence. Very festive.

Brian King said...

I don't like the looks of chain link fences so this is pretty cool!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

This is such a unique idea, and a great capture!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

My favorite fence EVER! (Wouldn't do it myself either, but I absolutely love this.) Great catch! We stayed near Beaux Bridge for a couple of weeks one year.

hootnonny said...

Very interesting. The steer horn don't seem to go w/the theme!

orchid Miyako said...
