Happy news!

kirkus(5a)April 4, 2014

I can now share this as it is official. (I have known this news for a few weeks but wanted to wait until all was truly happening.) I am dancing all over the place with excitement!!!! Old House Journal contacted me, asking me to use my screen door trellis for an article. They saw my trellis here on Garden Junk forum. The magazine (printed and on-line) is paying me to share my trellis photo and the steps in making the trellis. I have been working with the editor to write the article. I just LOVE sharing about thrifting ideas! Here is a recent article from such a great magazine, Old House Journal. http://www.oldhouseonline.com/turn-vintage-cabinet-knobs-hooks/

I agree...you have wonderful news. It is very exciting to have created something that others admire and appreciate and be asked to furnish directions so others can enjoy a trellis like yours. Marylee

Great news! So excited for you! I would be doing a happy dance too! Nice to know that garden junk is being appreciated for its beauty and how "green" it is; everything is game to being reused in a garden.

Have they seen your potting bench? I bet they would want to put it on the cover it's so beautiful.
Great news for you on the trellis! You could fill a whole issue with all your great projects.
