That's cute. Will it have "Welcome" painted on it, is that why it's called a Welcome Gate? Two more questions: what paint do you use, and do you spray afterwards with an acrylic spray or do you just leave it? I've sprayed little things for indoors with that spray.

Thank You! Yes, I plan on putting Welcome on the top bar, and will probably add a string of lights to the vines. I have a little more painting to do on the bottom. The cat has to be finished and I will add little beetles and butterflies here and there. I use acrylic paints and when it is finished I will add some indoor/outdoor craft varnish I pick up at Walmart.

Wendy, did you get any of my e-mails?

Thanks for the info, smileyface. Yes, I got your emails, and I thought I replied (about going to the show to see your stuff in September). I will investigate and try again.

O.K. Pooh! I was away a few days and had a lot of e-mails that might have gotten lost with other mail. I am working on the gate a little today. Have a Great Day!
