  1. Okay, this is a doorway and they are using mattress springs for the door. Never seen it used for a door before but seen lots of fences!


  2. Yay, Jonnie! It's really kind of elegant, isn't it?

  3. that is a matress spring with out the fabric designed now to be used as a gate that keeps small children in and goats outside and air moving at all times. i have seen these items the side of the road in Mexico long ago and far away..musta fallen off a truck with the pumpkins.....

  4. Absolutely right, Sonja! Brilliant in design, wouldn't you say? I've seen them used before, fences, trellises, etc but this is the most elegant one I've seen yet.
