Any time Philly or I come up with something far more fabulous and amazing than what our Visa card alone can provide, we call it the "blank" of all time.
For example, Eddie is the Schnauzer of all time.
Oh, my sweetness. Can you believe him???
If we ever finish our pantry, it will be the pantry of all time. Unless you hate my theme, which has yet to be revealed. I'm guessing half the world will love it, and half the world will hate it. Lands, was that a hint?
Do you remember the landscaping we did around the flag pole? Of course you do. That was just like four days ago.
You missed it? The hell you say. Go check it out. I'll wait.
Oh, you're back? M'kay.
I wanted a really big trellis and Phil wanted it not to be anchored to the house. Phil's a huge fan of not drilling holes in the house.
Such trellises have proven elusive. Except this one. I kinda like it, but...
Yeah, those vines are just a little too green and look suspiciously like the ones I saw falling off the Hobby Lobby truck the other day.
Cheaters. I'm so pissed off right now I can't see straight. Or maybe my choice of tasty beverage is causing the sudden change in my vision.
So. Philly said the magic words: "I'll pour you more wine."
No! That was the other time. This time he said, "I can build you a trellis!" Heavens, I adore that man.
We still have leftover cedar we stole from our neighbor to make our Pot Farm and our Headboard. There is no tutorial for the trellis because he did most of the constructing after I'd fallen into a wine-induced coma. And I'd have no idea what to say anyway, except get our your table saw, circular saw, and drill. And be like Phil.
But I have pictures!
Here's a quick refresher in the unlikely event you had the audacity to skip my last post.
Playing pick-up sticks!
Inserting tab A into slot B...
He sure can make a mess, can't he?
Here's how he'll stick it in the ground:
Let's pause for a moment and inquire why we need a trellis in the first place, hmmm?
These babies!! I love clematis and I hope I don't kill them a whole lot.
I planted two varieties, and the white one is doing well. The other is a red/purple combo and it's pretty much going to die, I'm afraid. Here's the wall before:
And trellissed. Now I just need my baby clematis to grow or I'll have to replace it with those stupid fake roses.
I mustn't neglect to share the gratuitous butt shot.
Happy Memorial Day weekend peeps!
