I have a new obsession…. Trellises!
It all started with Pinterest. That DANG Pinterest. You gotta love it.
Pinterest: “Helping me procrastinate… even more…. since 2010”
So, listen to this. Last year I HAD to have a vegetable garden. My daddy-o came over and built me this beautiful raised bed. The hubs, Eva and I headed down to the Detroit Eastern Market and bought some lovely organic vegetables.

The end result. Our veggies tasted like chemicals because of our lawn being sprayed. YUCK! Our garden became the feeding grounds for all wildlife, including our neighborhood peacock, Louie.

This year, NO GARDEN.
What to do with the raised garden? I’m NOT a gardener but I do LOVE design.

Oooo… and if I did THIS, I would need a trellis! JACK.POT.
Isn’t she a beauty? I found her on Amazon, HERE. She’s currently in my “Shopping Cart.”
Now, I’m sure you know, but I LOVE up-cycling. I want to share these awesome ideas I found for trellises! Oh.Em.Gee.
